  • Building Energy Modeling 101: HVAC Design and Operation Use Case

    A great deal of energy use in buildings goes toward heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). In 2015, HVAC consumed 15.5 quads. The first step in reducing HVAC energy use is reducing heating and cooling load—i.e., the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building—typically by reducing heat from equipment and lighting; minimizing unnecessary ...

  • Evaluation of the optimum efficiency of fire tubes boilers

    Three-stage pirotubular boilers using gasoil C have been studied. Two boilers were connected in parallel. The data has been obtained by means of an analyser; its probe was connected at the exit of the boilers. The operation parameters considered were the injection pressure and the number of burners. As the emission of pollutants must be within the values prescribed by legislation, these are ...

  • Saving waste in the boiler house

    Burner technology has improved greatly in recent years. Older Burners had a series of cams and levers that were calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. Being mechanical items, these wore and sometimes required calibration. They, therefore, had to be regularly serviced and calibrated. Generally, new burners use frequency controlled motors and cams to open air ...

  • Organics in boiler water condensate

    With the wide use of high efficiency boilers and current high-pressure boilers in industry today limiting condensate analysis to the more traditional parameters can result in very expensive repairs. Condensate return should be the highest quality least expensive water that most systems can generate. Boiler operators do not want to lose this or have it contaminated. Condensate return analysis has ...

  • Chemically Inclined: The Case for Clean Boilers

    Boiler cleaning is something most companies don’t want to think about — if boilers are working within operational limits it’s often easier to keep up with smaller preventative maintenance (PM) tasks but put off a total chemical clean ...

  • Frequency Converter energy savings on Boilers

    Boilers and heaters account for a significant share of a plant's purchased fuel cost. Combustion air fans are necessary to provide enough combustion air to the boiler or heater's burner system. Louvers, inlet guide vanes or frequency converters control the amount of air allowed into a boiler. Configuring a combustion air fan to allow the proper amount of air into the burner can improve boiler ...
