How to Run a Coal Fired Boiler at the Best Efficiency

Pulverized coal fired boilers the total losses account to about 12 to 14 %. Roughly 50% of the losses can be tuned to the optimum and the other 50 % is governed by fuel properties like hydrogen in fuel, moisture in fuel and ambient air conditions. The main two losses in boiler that can be tuned by operator are carbon loss and dry gas loss.

Efficiency of a Coal Fired Boiler in a Typical Thermal

Jan 01, 2017· The efficiency of the coal fired boiler calculated by the indirect method is found to be higher than that computed by the direct method. It should be noted that the direct method considers the heat energy utilized per unit of eat supplied, whereas the indirect method considers various heat losses. Effect of fuel properties on the bottom ash

This has an effect on boiler efficiency. The control of the air/fuel mixture ratio on many existing smaller boiler plants is ‘open loop’. That is, the burner will have a series of cams and levers that have been calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. As has already been mentioned, coal as a boiler

coal drying improves performance and reduces emissions

Coal Drying Improves Performance and Reduces Emissions

The combination of all these effects caused by firing drier coal will result in an improvement in boiler efficiency and unit heat rate, primarily due to the lower stack loss and lower station service power. In some cases this performance improvement will also allow higher power output with existing equipment.
