    Indirect method Indirect method determines the efficiency of a boiler by the sum of the major losses and by the fuel power of the boiler: φlosses η =1− (15) φinput where φ losses is the sum of the major losses within the boiler, and φ input is the fuel power of the boiler.Learn More

  • Improve Your Boiler's Combustion Efficiency

    A boiler operates for 8,000 hours per year and annually consumes 500,000 million Btu (MMBtu) of natural gas while producing 45,000 lb/hour of 150-psig steam. Stack gas measurements indicate an excess air level of 44.9% with a flue gas minus combustion air temperature of 400°F. From the table, the boiler combustion efficiency is 78.2% (E1).Learn More

  • Material Considerations in Boiler Design

    , temperature drop on the gas side In order to calculate the surface temperature, T3, as a result of ID scale formation, ho is first calculated from equation 4 given the design parameters of Uo, r3, rl, hs, and k2 for the bare tube condition. The scale conductance is zero and rl = Q, that is there is no ID scale.Learn More

  • Modeling of fire-tube boilers

    gas and water in a fire-tube boiler is considered. In the literature, a comprehensive modeling for fire-tube boilers has not been treated. Generally, the few models found are focused to one aspect of the fire-tube boiler performance as the gas/fire side or the water/steam side, and normally centered on nominal operating conditions.Learn More

  • Thermal Design of Economizer for Waste Heat Recovery Boiler

    pressure water tube boiler, the efficiency improvement with an economizer is 2 to 4%, depending on firing rate. On a high pressure fire tube boiler, the improvement is 2 to 3.5%, depending on boiler size and firing rate. As the temperature difference between two working media is small, economizer needs a very large heat exchange surface.Learn More
