Resumen:
In order to determine the behavior of a new conical spouted bed combustor for the thermal exploitation of wastes of pruning of vineyards by combustion, a hydrodynamic study has been carried out with homogenous beds wastes of pruning of vineyards, the evolution of the different regimes and the stable operation conditions have been determined. Beds consisting of vine shoots have been dried for improving combustion. The success of the combustion of wastes of vineyards pruning in a conical spouted bed combustor has been proven based on combustion efficiency values.
