Adiabatic Flame Temperature
Hi, do you have any information about adiabatic flame temperature for mix of coal dust and excessive air? Thanks for response!

Re: Adiabatic Flame Temperature
Hi You need the NCV or net calorific value for the specific coal dust you want to "burn", the composition of the coal (%carbon, moisture, sulphur and nitrogen, etc). And then the first law of thermodynamics will assist in the rest:Q +sum(mh)_reactants = sum(mh)_products. Most thermodynamic handbooks should have a section on combustion. It involves chemical balance as well from inputs above. Regards Jean
