Even so-called "on-ratio" combustion, used in boilers and high temperature process furnaces incorporates a modest amount of excess air - 10 to 20% more than needed to burn the fuel completely. If insufficient amount of air is supplied to the burner, unburned fuel, soot, smoke, and carbon monoxide are exhausted from the boiler.Read More
Oct 15, 2009 · Maintaining a good flame in a boiler is the key to a good boiler performance. Unstable flame is always a threat for boiler furnace explosion, which can lead to a large outage of boiler and loss. There are many causes that can contribute to boiler flame failure. Hence it has become a practice of all boiler designers to interlock purging the boiler with boiler start-up. Flame failure in a boiler can be due to many reasons.Read More
Venting Issues. In most cases, the sequence of events that leads to flame rollout in gas boilers begins with gradual accumulation of soot or dislodged rust inside the narrow flue passages of the heat exchanger. These passageways convey combustion gases to …Read More
Symptoms: Aggressive localized boiler tube corrosion and loss of tube wall.Pits can act as stress-concentration sites which can be initiation points for stress-related corrosion mechanisms. Causes: Oxygen pitting occurs with the presence of excessive oxygen in boiler water.It can occur during operation as a result of in-leakage of air at pumps, or failure in operation of preboiler waterRead More
The gross power is of the order of 10-20% more than the net power and depends on the boiler design, service temperature and fuel. Therefore, for a boiler of 1000 kW net power, a burner with power of 1100-1250 kW is required. The boiler overpressure is the loss of load or pressure in the internal smoke circuit.Read More
Jan 15, 2021 · The boiler doesn't have power: The circuit breaker or fuse controlling the furnace may have tripped or blown.Reset the tripped circuit breaker or replace a blown fuse.; The water level is low: Maintain the water level in the boiler at half-full.The boiler's automatic filling system, controlled by the pressure-reducing valve, should maintain the proper water level at 12 to 15 psi of pressure.Read More
