Abstract

Current radiant syngas cooler designs require forced circulation as opposed to natural circulation to circulate water through the radiant syngas cooler. This instant disclosure uses the idea of using natural circulation which may increase the reliability of the system as equipment would be removed.

RADIANT SYNGAS COOLER NATURAL CONVECTION

Current radiant syngas cooler (RSC) designs require forced circulation of water.  By converting water to steam in a radiant syngas cooler, the density change in the fluid causes circulation to occur.  A higher elevation high pressure steam drum may allow gravity to help the flow of water to the radiant syngas cooler, whereby steam is generated and sent back to the radiant syngas cooler high pressure steam drum.   The reliability of the radiant syngas cooler may be increased by removing the radiant syngas cooler high pressure circulation pump.
