Babcock & Wilcox offers a wide range of options to maintain capacity and achieve clean air compliance when switching to a different fuel or when firing a variety of fuels.
Our system approach to utility boiler products and improvements can help you achieve emission compliance when implementing SO2 and low NOx reduction strategies.
Fuel switching is one such strategy. But, to maintain plant efficiency and avoid a unit derate, all areas of your plant must be evaluated for the effects of the change in fuels: fuel delivery, coal receiving and handling, burners, air heaters, heat transfer surfaces, auxiliary power, precipitators, ash handling systems, environmental control equipment and instrument, controls and electrical equipment.
With more than 40 years of experience in designing products to reduce NOx and SO2 emissions, we have the technology and engineering support to optimize unit performance when switching fuels. We are prepared to evaluate how fuel switching will affect your boiler and help you maximize its efficiency.
