B&W can add, redesign or upgrade air heaters to solve boiler operating performance problems and improve unit efficiency. Solutions utilizing regenerative (rotary) or recuperative (tubular or plate) air heaters can be customized to address specific needs. We can also provide associated flue and duct, structural and controls modifications that accompany air heater upgrades.
Our air heater capabilities include:
- Addition of air heater surface to improve unit performance
- Air heater surface cleaning equipment
- Complete computational modeling capabilities to solve air or flue gas plugging problems
- Fire suppression systems
