These new resins are an alternative to metal boiler components In wall-hung condensing boilers for residential use, high-performance Noryl, Ultem and Cycoloy resins can replace traditional metals such as copper and brass used in boiler components, including condenser housings and manifolds. In high-efficiency condensing boilers, Noryl PPX resin offers an advantage over stainless-steel condenser housings...

The heat transfer sufaces of coal-fired process heaters and boilers often undergo severe fouling. If left intact, such deposits, consisting of slag from mineral matter contained in the coal, can reduce heat-transfer-surface availability, reduce thermal efficiency and cause corrosion. If the deposits are adherent and cannot be removed by conventional steam soot-blowers, shutdown and more rigorous cleaning...

  Industrial furnaces, or direct-fired heaters, are only as good as the burners that supply them with thermal energy for heat transfer and endothermic chemical reactions. This article presents equations that permit calculation of such important burner-operating characteristics as flame length, flame diameter, ignitability, and flameout conditions for both very high and very low velocities. The data...

Traditionally, the cogeneration of steam and electricity has been restricted to plants that generate superheated steam, making the recovery of energy losses from saturated steam impossible for many industrial sites ranging from distilleries to pharmaceutical plants and pulp-and-paper mills. At the Chem Show (see first item above), Pennant International Corp. (Edison, N.J.;

A “clean” combustion process that includes carbon dioxide sequestration may get its first commercial-scale tryout in Jamestown, N.Y., where the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is planning to replace two old, coal-fired boilers by a 43-MW circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler. Startup is planned for 2012. The BPU and its team of advisers have agreed to incorporate the oxy-coal process in the...

Cleaning the interior of firetubes in oil-, biomass- or coal-fired boilers is a time-consuming task that can normally be done only when a boiler is offline. Now, a system that can do the job automatically while the boiler is in operation is available from Optimum Environmental Technologies B.V. (Arnhem, Netherlands; Optimum's Automatic in-line Pipe Cleaning System...

    Steam traps have been around for a hundred years or so, and for the most part, nothing revolutionary has come forward to change the basic way a trap functions. Any operation that uses steam to produce a high-quality, consistent product depends on a multitude of these ingenious devices to do their job day in and day out. Yet, who watches over these steam traps, which may number in the...

    The dramatic jump in petroleum and natural gas prices over the recent years has created much impetus to reduce operating costs at chemical process plants. In processes that use either oil or gas for feedstock, such reduction can come either from improved energy-usage methods or from yield improvements. In either case, the plant's steam resource is often a primary provider of heat or...
