    The sticky temp. of carryover particles in recovery boilers is an important parameter in boiler design and operation.  A study was undertaken to re-​evaluate the effect of chem. compn. on the sticky temp. of carryover particles.  The results showed that the sticky temp. is strongly related to particle size and liq. content.  Particles with a typical size range of 150-​300 μm will become sticky if their liq. content exceeds 15​%.  Based on this information, a series of sticky temp. contour maps were constructed which can be used to predict the sticky temp. of any sulfide-​free carryover particle as a function of chloride, K, and carbonate content.
