## IMPROVING BOILER EFFICIENCY BY USING AIR PREHEAT

IMPROVING BOILER EFFICIENCY BY USING AIR PREHEATER V. Mallikarjuna* N. Jashuva** B. Rama Bhupal Reddy*** Abstract: Air pre-heater is a heat transfer surface in which air temperature is raised by transferring heat from other media such as flue gas .Hot air is necessary for rapid combustion in the furnace and also for drying coal in milling plants.

## CHAPTER 3 COMBUSTION CALCULATI

boiler at 300oC (all the water formed will be vapour). In addition, a substantial amount of heat is also lost through the boiler wall and other uncounted sources. Calculate the flue gas composition (both dry and wet basis) leaving a boiler. Calculate the combustion efficiency of a steam boiler

## How to calculate boiler efficiency by Direct Meth

Nov 24, 2016· Boiler Efficiency:-Thermal efficiency of boiler is defined as the percentage of heat input that is effectively utilized to generate steam. There are two methods of assessing boiler efficiency. 1) Boiler Efficiency by Direct Method: Where the energy gain of the working fluid (water and steam) is compared with the energy content of the boiler fuel.

## Calculating Boiler Efficiency - Forbes Marsha

File Size: 881KB In actual practice, two methods are commonly used to find out boiler efficiency, namely direct method and indirect method of efficiency calculation. Direct efficiency. This method calculates boiler efficiency by using the basic efficiency formula-η=(Energy output)/(Energy input) X 100. In order to calculate boiler efficiency by this method, we

## The Basics of a Boiler Stack Economiz

File Size: 296KB 25% of the boilers’evaporation rate, the efficiency gain can be more. To figure this, you begin by calculating the flow to the economizer. Use 34.5 pounds of steam per boiler horsepower and a gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds. A 200 HP boiler will then develop approximately 6900#/hr and at 25% makeup is 1726#/hr divided by 8.3#/

## Steam Calculators: Boiler Calculat

Mar 17, 2015· Steam, Boiler, and Blowdown Pressure are the same. Combustion Efficiency is the % of fuel energy that is directly added to the feedwater and not otherwise lost or used. Blowdown Rate is the % of incoming feedwater mass flow rate that leaves the boiler as a saturated liquid at boiler pressure.

## Chapter 11: Boilers and Boiler Calculatio

Chapter 11: Boilers and Boiler Calculations 7.13 kg Equivalent evaporation from and at 100 C per m**2 of total surface per hour: 0.99 kg Boiler efficiency: 57.45 % Example 12, page no. 489
