  • Improve Boiler Efficiency

    In many chemical plants, the electricity the plant uses is derived from a natural gas power plant or a co-generation plant burning waste gas streams. In large boilers (Figure 1), power plants bring together air and fuel (natural gas, waste gas, oil or coal) for combustion, which creates heat. The heat boils the water, creating steam. The steam runs through a turbine, which causes the turbine to ...

  • 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 ...
