  • The “Tipping” Point of High Turndown Ratios: How much of a good thing is too much?

    Boilers used for domestic water and space heating are one of the highest energy consumers in residential and commercial facilities. After the global energy crisis in the 1970s, higher fuel prices prompted the search for solutions to reduce energy consumption. Back then, conventional steam boilers were the only option available. However, these boilers were very inefficient (due in part to the ...

  • Maximizing Boiler Performance - Case Study

    Combustion and the Significance of Unburned Fuel Combustion takes place when fuel reacts with oxygen to produce energy in the form of heat. The energy generated when fuel is burned is used in the operation of a variety of equipment, including boilers, furnaces, kilns, and engines. In addition to heat, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H20 (water) are created as byproducts of the chemical ...

  • Square lower sidewall headers in Stoker units - Case study

    Purpose Advise owners and operators of stoker-fired boilers with square lower sidewall headers to inspect these headers for possible cracking. Problem Older stoker-fired boilers, with square lower furnace sidewall headers, have experienced header cracking. These square headers have relatively thick walls. Because of their location, directly above the grates, ...

  • Chemically Inclined: The Case for Clean Boilers

    Boiler cleaning is something most companies don’t want to think about — if boilers are working within operational limits it’s often easier to keep up with smaller preventative maintenance (PM) tasks but put off a total chemical clean ...

  • The solutions of industrial hot water boiler water evaporation

    When the water evaporation of industrial hot water boiler occurs,we should actively looks for the reasons and the corresponding solutions to extend its thermal efficiency. In the last article,the reasons of industrial hot water boiler water vaporization have been analyzed,after consulting the engineers of Zhengzhou Boiler Co., Ltd,this text will introduce the ...

  • Attention to the use of steam boilers in the industry

    In the industry, if people need to use high-temperature steam , then the steam boiler will be used; water can be heated to a quite high temperature, and generates high-temperature steam . Steam boilers and other hot water boiler are not the same , if people want to use the steam boiler, the boiler must be certified , or else once operated wrongly , then the consequences are very terrible.  ...

  • Application of 1-hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid in boiler water for industrial boilers

    The primary method used for boiler water treatment is the addition of chemicals to industrial boilers to prevent corrosion and scaling. The static scale inhibition method was used to evaluate the scale inhibition performance of 1-hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid (HEDP). Autoclave static experiments were used to study the corrosion inhibition properties of the main material for industrial ...

    Overview The mainstream media today is full of allusions to energy awareness and conservation. Just as visible these days are media references to astronomical dollar figures that can boggle the mind. This article does ...

  • Rectify dry cycling of gas boilers and reduce energy costs by 25%

    Building engineers, energy and facilities managers tend to overlook that many gas boilers waste energy through dry cycling when they are not actively contributing to the building heating and hot water demand. It is often thought that existing building management systems (BMS) and building energy management systems (BEMS) are optimising the boilers to remove dry cycling. However, the BMS is ...
