4 Factors that Impact Energy Loss in Boilers

Boiler efficiency is a measure of the total energy input to a boiler vs. its total energy output. In effect, it is an indication of the energy losses encountered during boiler operation through radiation, convection and inefficient combustion. There are a number of factors that contribute to energy loss and boiler inefficiency. Some of these Keep reading…

How Combustion Losses Affect Boiler Efficiency

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 Keep reading…

Fuel Feed System and Boiler Performance

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 Keep reading…
