Abstract : The basic principles of the high-temperature combustion of natural solid fuel are formulated. Variants are optimized; the scheme of a vertical cyclone with lower gas discharge, hardened slag lining protection of walls, and side removal of slag was adopted. Complete preliminary mixing of dry coal dust with all the high-temperature heated air and uniformly distributed feed of a ready dust-air mixture along the entire cyclone perimeter were carried out. A revised method of calculating high-temperature regimes for the combustion of solid fuel is presented that takes into account the actual operating conditions of the combustion chamber. The maximum attainable temperatures in the combustion of natural fuel were estimated. The combustion chamber, methods and conditions of the experiments are described. (Modified author abstract)
