 ### ASME PTC 4- iNdirect Method: Stack Loss Method

1. q2-flue gas heat loss The exhaust heat loss is the heat loss caused by a part of the heat that is taken away by the smoke of the boiler. Its size is related to the amount of smoke, the smoke exhaust and the reference temperature and the sensible heat of the water vapor in the flue gas. q2 can be used as a simplified calculation formula: q2 = (3.55αpy +0.44) (tpy-t0) / 100

Calculate the dry flue gas loss (LDG) using the following formula: LDG = [24 x DG x (FGT – CAT)] ÷ HHV, where. DG (lb./lb. fuel) = (11CO 2 + 8O 2 + 7N 2) x (C + 0.375S) ÷ 3CO 2 FGT = flue gas temperature, ºF CAT = combustion air temperature, ºF HHV = higher heating value of fuel, Btu/lb. CO 2 and O 2 = percent by volume in the flue gas N 2 = 100 – CO 2 – O 2
