Chapter 3a. Boiler And Unfired Pressure Vessel Regulations

(i) A boiler or unfired pressure vessel in which pressure is not generated and is derived from an outside source shall have a safety device connected to the vessel or system which it protects in a manner to prevent a rise in pressure beyond the maximum allowable pressure.

Monitoring Dissolved Oxygen in High-Pressure Boiler Systems

Direct or mechanical removal of dissolved oxygen is accomplished through the use of a deaerator or by heating the water to a temperature above 180 degrees F. Heating the water can be done with a preheater or sparge tube installed in the return system. Chemical deaeration is done through the introduction of specific chemicals in the boiler to react with the oxygen. The dissolved oxygen content should be maintained at a minimum but at no time should it exceed 0.007 mg/l. Sulfites

Improve Your Boiler's Combustion Efficiency

saturation, the oxygen content in the feed water should be 5-7 ppb. • Remember when we talk about oxygen, gasses are referred to as volume to volume • It takes 10-15% of steam by weight of make up to bring the feed water temperature up to within 3ºF (1.7ºC) of saturation • DA venting flow rate is based on oxygen content of the feed water.

Combustion Efficiency and Excess Air

Boilers often operate at excess air levels higher than the optimum. Periodically monitor flue gas composition and tune your boilers to maintain excess air at optimum levels. Consider online monitoring of flue gas oxygen level to quickly identify energy loss trends that can provide early warning of control failures and allow data to drive your

Industrial boiler technology for beginners

The boiler pressure vessel is a horizontal, cylindrical tube closed at both sides with an end plate and insulated all around. There is a flame tube (1st pass) in this pressure vessel, which is fired through a burner and an internally situated reversing chamber that reverses the flue gases and leads them back in the 2nd smoke tube pass.
