Applications which fit the following description should be submitted under
funding opportunity title of Novel Sensors for Slagging Coal Gasification
Systems (DE-PS26-05NT42244-04).

Development of novel sensors and control systems is needed to support the
full-scale implementation and operation of highly efficient power
technologies such as advanced combustion, gasification, turbines, fuel
gas cleaning technologies, and carbon sequestration. Current technology
developments are in support of the FutureGen initiative and other
efforts aimed at enhancing the efficiency and reducing emissions thereby
removing the environmental concerns associated with fossil fuel use.

Grant applications are sought for novel measurement approaches that can
determine the integrity and thickness of refractory used in slagging coal
gasification systems. Slagging coal gasifiers operate under extreme
conditions, high temperatures (less than 1000 oC), and elevated pressure
(greater than 200 psig),
which create highly erosive and corrosive conditions. The ability to
the thickness or integrity of the refractory in the harshest zones of the
gasifier will contribute to extending the operational time between
thus improving the reliability of a gasification-based power system. Low
point measurements are acceptable approaches. A single threshold
of refractory thickness integrated with temperature measurement is also of
interest. Non-destructive evaluations (NDE) that can be used during
will also provide valuable information for determining when a gasifier
be shutdown for maintenance.
