Boiler Operations That Affect Efficiency (Part 1)

Boiler Operations That Affect Efficiency (Part 1)
Optimizing boiler and steam system efficiency is more important than ever. Although a boiler’s efficiency is primarily a result of its design, an operator can maintain or significantly improve efficiency by effectively managing various techniques and key functions.

Read Part 1 of this two-part series which discusses operating techniques.

Valent BioSciences

A biorational manufacturing plant needed a way to keep one of its industrial package boilers in hot standby condition to better adjust for demand.

The installation of lower drum heating coils helped it do just that, while reducing fuel, costs and emissions.

Ignition Condition

American Electric Power (AEP) Amos Power Plant

If your boiler isn’t lighting off as quickly and easily as it used to, it might be fly ash pluggage or other issues with your ignition equipment.

See how refurbishing ignitors helped AEP reduce light-off time by more than 90 percent.

A Numerical Modeling Example – Sorbent Injection Systems

A Numerical Modeling Example – Sorbent Injection Systems
Results from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling can be used in a wide range of applications. This article shows how modeling can be used to determine reagent injection locations, nozzle design and the impact of directional flow devices in a sorbent injection system for emissions control.

EPA's Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule

Affordable Clean Energy Rule

The EPA’s recently published Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule identifies heat rate improvements as the Best Source for Emissions Reductions (BSER) to control CO2. While the rule currently does not set limits, it establishes the framework for states to use to set achievable unit level heat rate improvements (HRI) at the plants.

We prepared an overview of the rule, summarized the timeline, and review the six BSER candidate technologies which can help you improve plant heat rate and boiler efficiency.
