    The sticky temperature of carryover Particles in kraft recovery boilers is an important parameter in boiler design and operation. Results of a collaborative study show that the sticky temperature depends strongly on particle size and liquid content. A series of sticky temperature contour maps has been constructed, which call be used to predict the sticky temperature of all sulphide-free carryover particle as a function of chloride, potassium and carbonate content.
