The two 450t/h CFB units of the Zeran heat and power plant in Warsaw, Poland, are nearly identical in design, except for the cyclones. While the first CFB unit Zeran A which was commissioned in 1995 had cyclones of a prior design, the second unit Zeran B, which went into operation in late 2001, was equipped with high efficiency cyclones with the latest technological developments. The impact of the cyclone design is clearly visible in the operational data. Due to the high cyclone efficiency, the internal circulation became much higher and the fineness of the circulating particles was shifted to finer particles. As a result, the heat transfer in the furnace was boosted and the temperature profile became more even. This had a significant positive effect on the emissions, especially NOx and on the limestone consumption, which was considerably reduced.
