        FEW WAYS TO MAKE YOUR BOILER MORE EFFICIENT

           


Over half your energy costs are probably associated with your boiler, so improving boiler efficiency is a simple way to save money. 

You want some excess air as it's absolutely necessary for the boiler's combustion process, but you want just the right amount - neither too much, nor too little. Try to find that ideal balance to achieve optimal combustion. 

Reducing scales and blowdown to their optimal level is another helpful tip. In each case there's an optimal level to help your boiler's efficiency.

Did you know that just a small increase in scale thickness can increase your boiler's fuel consumption? So reducing scales even by just a small thickness can really make a noticeable difference and help reduce your energy bills.

You can also make a difference when you regulate your blowdown rate. Too little blowdown leads to the formation of deposits, whilst too much wastes energy. Yet again it is a case of finding your boiler's optimal level. 

Don't forget that a good economiser uses waste heat to pre-heat the feed water going into the boiler and this can help efficiency too.

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER:
1.Increased thermal efficiency
2. Short payback period & increased combustion rate
3. In the case of combustion of pulverized coal hot air can be used for drying the coal as well as for burning the coal efficiently
4. All standard fuels and even lower grades of coals can be burnt efficiently with hot air

Thermodyne Boilers is a successful manufacturing the Boiler accessories like Air Preheaters, Economizers, Superheaters etc.

What is Wet Scrubber?

Wet Scrubbers are the pollution control equipment that helps in controlling the pollution by reducing the concentration of pollutants such as Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and ash content in exhaust flue gases.
As the pollution norms are getting stringent and the government is making sure that pollution laws are being implemented, many industries are coming up with various solutions and strategies for reducing the pollution and its management. One such solution is using pollution control equipment such as Wet Scrubbers.

Industries or power plants generally have boilers or furnaces installed in their processes where combustion of fuel is taking place. Combustion of fuel generates flue gases that contain a large amount of heat which is transferred to water to convert into steam. These fuels generally contain carbon, sulfur, hydrogen, oxygen and on combustion with air, they form flue gases containing Sulfur dioxide (SO2), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Ash, Water vapor (H2O). Out of these SO2 and Ash …

Why Do We Need A Fusible Plug?

Fusible Plug is a fitting used in Steam Boilers to enhance the safety during operation. It’s working depends upon the water level in the Boiler shell. A fusible Plug is a threaded metallic cylindrical object, with a tapered hole in it which goes through its entire length. It is usually of brass, bronze or even gunmetal. In a smoke tube steam boiler, it is fitted on the front tube sheet, just above the tubes (used for flue gas flow) arrangement but below the perforated feed line inside the shell.


But the question is how exactly this little thing helps in preventing a huge disaster. It’s working is dependent only on the temperatures not on pressures. What happens is that during steam boiler operation, the feed pumps to supply water for steam conversion in the Boiler shell on the basis of the signal sent to it by the electrical panel. And electrical panel receives this signal from the mobrey (automatic water level controller) based on the fluctuating water levels due to conti…
