Cyclone Boiler - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Combustion occurs at very high temperatures: 3200°F to 3550°F (1760–1950°C). The fuel for cyclone boilers is typically a bituminous coal prone to slagging; it may be blended with other coals and/or petroleum coke, biomass, or other fuel materials. Some cyclone boilers are fired with subbituminous coals, while others are fired with lignites.
