• #### Calculating Boiler Efficiency - Forbes Marshall

Direct efficiency. This method calculates boiler efficiency by using the basic efficiency formula-η=(Energy output)/(Energy input) X 100. In order to calculate boiler efficiency by this method, we divide the total energy output of a boiler by total energy input given to the boiler, multiplied by hundred. Calculation of direct efficiency-E= [Q (H-h)/q*GCV]*100. Where,

4. #### BOILER EFFICIENCY GUIDE - Cleaver-Brooks

key factor is fuel usage or boiler efficiency. Boiler efficiency, in the simplest terms, represents the difference between the energy input and energy output. A typical boiler will consume many times the initial capital expense in fuel usage annually. Consequently, a difference of just a few percentage points in boiler efficiency between units can translate into substantial savings.

Mar 17, 2015· Steam, Boiler, and Blowdown Pressure are the same. Combustion Efficiency is the % of fuel energy that is directly added to the feedwater and not otherwise lost or used. Blowdown Rate is the % of incoming feedwater mass flow rate that leaves the boiler as a saturated liquid at boiler pressure.

8. #### Boiler Efficiency Calculation by Indirect Method

In this method, the efficiency can be obtained by substracting the heat loss fractions from 100. Boiler efficiency = 100 – (L 1 + L 2 + L 3 + L 4 + L 6 + L 7 + L 8). Where L 1 = Loss due to dry flue gas

9. #### Combustion Efficiency and Excess Air

The combustion efficiency increases with increased excess air - until the heat loss in the excess air is larger than the heat provided by more efficient combustion. Excess air to achieve highest possible efficiency for some common fuels: 5 - 10% for natural gas. 5 - 20% for fuel oil. 15 - 60% for coal. Carbon dioxide - CO2 - is a combustion
