A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model was developed to simulate alkali metal chemistry and fume particle formation in a kraft recovery boiler. The modeling results were partially validated against previously obtained field measurements. The model provides information about fume composition, chlorine and potassium enrichment factors, and particle mass concentration at different locations in the boiler.
