5 Signs That Your Boiler Needs Servicing

Posted on

Industrial boilers account for a large portion of monthly energy bills. By being attentive to boiler maintenance needs, operators can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and prolong the life of their equipment. Listed below are five signs that may indicate your boiler needs to be serviced. Water Leaks – Boiler leaks are usually evident by an […]


How Combustion Losses Affect Boiler Efficiency

Posted on

Boiler efficiency can be calculated a number of different ways. One method is by taking the amount of heat captured and transferred to the water, and dividing by the total generated heat. If not transferred to the water the heat is considered lost and efficiency is reduced. Types of combustion losses include: Blowdown Heat Losses […]


Fuel Feed System and Boiler Performance

Posted on

The fuel feed system is a vital performance component of any low-emission boiler. In addition to supplying fuel, a properly designed fuel feed system ensures consistent and reliable combustion by distributing fuel within the boiler. The form and type of fuel also plays an important part in a boiler’s performance and operation. Gaseous fuels, for […]


An Overview of Boiler Types

Choosing the Right Boiler for Your Operation Choosing the right boiler for an operation will ultimately be dictated by the heating requirements of the application and/or process, as well as project-specific factors, such as emissions, efficiency, location, cost, and access to available fuel sources. In every case, ensuring that the boiler has been expertly designed […]


Measuring Boiler Efficiency

Posted on

Boiler efficiency has a direct impact on overall plant economics. It can be measured in terms of the combustion process or by the transfer of heat to the boiler water. Thermal Efficiency Thermal efficiency is a measure of the heat exchange between the combustion process and the water in the boiler. Expressed as a percentage, […]
