Boiler efficiency depends solely on the boilers ability to burn the fuel and transfer the resulting heat to water and steam.The difference between energy input and output is the sum of the various energy losses from the boiler. These are:1) Dry flue gas loss.2) Evaporation of water formed due to hydrogen in fuel.3) Moisture present in fuel.

Read MoreIndirect Method. Direct method: Direct method is quick method for boiler efficiency calculation, In this method, Percentage of total heat output vs heat input is calculated to establish boiler performance. Boiler Efficiency = Heat output / Heat Input X 100. Or Boiler Efficiency = Q X (h2 – h1) / (q X GCV) X 100. Where Q = Qty of steam generated.

Read More30/10/2009 · Boiler test codes provide elaborate and detailed boiler efficiency calculation. A simple method of boiler efficiency testing using simple boiler efficiency formula which the boiler engineer can use on a daily basis is given in this article.

Read More14/1/2015 · Unburnt losses in bottom ash (Carbon) Boiler Efficiency by indirect method = 100 - (L1 + L2 + L3 + L4 + L5 + L6 + L7 + L8) 6. This is also known as 'input-output method' due to the fact that it needs only the useful output (steam) and the heat input (i.e. fuel) for evaluating the efficiency.

Read MoreExample B1 Example B2 Example B3 Steam system consisting mainly of indirect consumers (c = 90%) and a small number of direct consumers (10%). The make-up water is replenished from an osmosis water treatment unit and the boiler has a low salt mode

Read More23/9/2009 · Efficiency is a very important criterion in Boiler selection and Design. Efficiency figure depends upon the type of boiler as well as on the type of fuel and it's constituents. For example, efficiency of a Bagasse fired boiler is about 70% where as that of oil fired boilers is about 85 %.

Read More17/3/2015 · Steam, Boiler, and Blowdown Pressure are the same. Combustion Efficiency is the % of fuel energy that is directly added to the feedwater and not otherwise lost or used. Blowdown Rate is the % of incoming feedwater mass flow rate that leaves the boiler as a
