If economically justified, boiler water blowdown can be used to heat process streams. In most cases, boiler water blowdown heat recovery systems use flash steam from the flash tank for deaeration. The blowdown from the flash tank is passed through an exchanger and used to preheat boiler makeup water.Read More
The treatment and conditioning of boiler feed water must satisfy three main objectives:. Continuous heat exchange; Corrosion protection; Production of high quality steam; External treatment is the reduction or removal of impurities from water outside the boiler. In general, external treatment is used when the amount of one or more of the feed water impurities is too high to be tolerated by theRead More
Initial testing and annual monitoring of the heat transfer fluid in condensing boilers with aluminium or stainless steel heat exchangers is highly recommended. Maintenance of a slightly alkaline (pH 8 to 9) liquid with anti-corrosion and buffering agents reduces corrosion of the aluminium heat exchanger.Read More
A Brayton cycle for a gas turbine is a more efficient heat engine than the Rankine cycle used in a boiler. If the gases are introduced into the turbine at their peak gasification temperatures and if a conventional Rankine cycle is used to burn the residual char and for the low-grade heat, overall thermal efficiencies as high as 60% (higherRead More
Sep 23, 2019 · Although the boiler can run two taps at full bore, running a bath at just enough flow to activate it allows for extremely efficient heating of hot water. Letting the bath fill slower allows full heat transfer from the gas burni as it is not dumped up the flue and as the fan is running a low speed the condenser has max efficiency..Read More
Boiler feedwater heaters are designed to improve boiler efficiency by extracting heat from streams such as boiler water blowdown and turbine extraction or excess exhaust steam. Feedwater heaters are generally classified as low-pressure (ahead of the deaerator), high-pressure (after the deaerator), or deaerating heaters.Read More
