Abstract
THIS STUDY WILL ATTEMPT TO DEVELOP A HIGH-RESOLUTION, INFRARED INSTRUMENT TO MONITOR CONCENTRATION LEVELS OF INDIVIDUAL ALKALI MOLECULAR SPECIES IN COMBUSTOR GAS STREAMS. THE FORMATION OF ALKALI SULFATES ON HOT COMBUSTOR SURFACES LEADS TO SEVERE CORROSION AND FOULING, RAISING OPERATING COSTS AND REDUCING EFFICIENCY. A MONITOR OF THE DOMINANT GAS-PHASE ALKALIS WOULD AID DEVELOPMENT OF MEASUREMENTS AND MODELS FOR UNDERSTANDING THE FORMATION OF THESE COMPOUNDS AND WOULD PERMIT THE TESTING AND USE OF VARIOUS CONTROL STRATEGIES ONCE THE FORMATION MECHANISMS ARE UNDER- STOOD. PHASE I SHOULD DEMONSTRATE THE SCIENTIFIC FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING INDIVIDUAL ALKALI SPECIES AT SUFFICIENT SENSITIVITIES USING A TUNABLE INFRARED DIODE LASER.
