The partially sintered spheres model, describing the sulphation of a sorbent particle consisting of CaO and inert content, is incorporated in a model taking into account the calcination of the limestone or dolomite and the sintering of the nascent oxide resulting from the calcination. The model is applicable, for example, to the sulphation of limestone or dolomite when injected into the furnace of a pulverized coal-fired boiler. The simulations show a temperature optimum in the calcium conversion. Increased calcium conversion is found when inert material is present. Satisfactory experimental verifications of the model are shown.
