  • Tuning Your Boiler for Fuel Savings – Out with the Old in with the New Technology

    The USA has about 811,000 MW of installed generation and over 52% of our Electric power is produced by aging coal fired power plants. The average utility boiler furnace was designed about 30-40 years ago. According to DOE records, the average boiler in 1974 was fired with 80% bituminous coal. Now, western PRB coal is much more prevalent and represents about 50% of total coal ...

  • Cementing the PC MACT
