multiple benefits compact boiler design, fuel flexibility, higher combustion efficiency and reduced emission of noxious pollutants such as SO x and NO x. The fuels burnt in these boilers include coal, washery rejects, rice husk, bagasse and other agricultural wastes. The fluidized bed boilers have a wide capacity range- 0.5 T/hr to over 100
Typical modern boilers will fire natural gas as the primary fuel, with a percentage of these using #2 fuel oil as a backup fuel. A system designer should be aware of a couple of key points when in-volved with boiler fuel oil systems. 1) Most boilers firing fuel oil will have their own fuel oil pump.
publication Packaged Boiler Engineering Manual offers a helpful general overview for typical Firetube boilers and other large commercial and industrial products. Stack design can a significant impact. A good stack design will provide a smooth flow and transition of the flue gas as it exits the building while a poor design that has turbulence
