Energy Tips - Steam

  1. Recover Heat from Boiler Blowdown (see Blowdown Heat Recovery in the Products Section)
  2. Use Feedwater Economizers for Waste Heat Recovery (see Economizer in the Products Section)
  3. Upgrade Boilers with Energy-Efficent Burners (see Burners in the Products Section)
  4. Benchmark the Fuel Cost of Steam Generation
  5. Deaerators in Industrial Steam Systems (see Deaerators in the Product Section)
  6. Improve your Boiler's Combustion Efficiency (see Oxygen Trim Systems/Combustion Controls in the Product Section)
  7. Install an Automatic Blowdown System (see Automatic Blowdown Controllers in the Products Section)
  8. Inspect and Repair Steam Traps
  9. MORE COMING SOON!!!!!!!!

Boiler Topics

  1. Boiler/Burner Glossary - common terms used when talking about boilers and burners, very useful!
  2. Boiler Air Room Design - calculate how much air is needed to be supplied to the boiler and how can you supply it with the boiler's house building design,
    a very good document for designers.
  3. Efficiency Comparison: 4:1 Turndown & 10:1 Turndown - this JBC technical brief documents a comparison energy loss and the resulting impact on
    boiler efficiency between a boiler operating at a 4:1 turndown compared to a 10:1 turndown.
  4. Common Boiler Formulas - In this document you will find useful formulas to calculate everything from boiler horsepower, steam production, blowdown rate
    to boiler fuel consumption. Each formula contains an example that shows how to properly calculate everything.
