Boilers | Department of Environmental Conservation

For boilers that burn fuel oils (e.g. diesel, kerosene, etc.), the threshold is for individual units of 3 MMBtu/hr or greater, which aggregate to greater than 10 MMBtu/hr, combined. If the boiler burns coal, the threshold is 5 MMBtu/hr if anthracite coal, and any size boiler that burns bituminous coal will need a permit. Wood Boilers.

How Do Burner Combustion Control Systems Work? - …

Limiting the amount of excess air entering a flame is accomplished through burner design and can be optimized through the use of oxygen trim controls. Low excess air firing can be used on most boilers and generally results in overall NOx reductions of 5-10% when firing natural gas.

Burner Management System in Boiler | O2 Trim Control | …

If your boiler uses a conventional mechanical linkage control system then you are almost certainly wasting fuel. By installing an electronic Burner Management System, savings of over 10% can be made in fuel usage, running costs and CO2 emissions. Further efficiency improvements and cost savings can be made by adding Oxygen Trim and VSD Control

oxygen trim for diesel fuel boilers-Industrial boiler …

Boilers with oxygen trim can typically be run at O2 levels that are 1% to 3% lower than systems without the trim. This reduced amount of excess air also results in stack temperatures that are lower. The typical effect of incorporating oxygen trim is an efficiency improvement of approximately 1-3% on reasonably well maintained boilers

Why Oxygen Levels Matter in High Efficiency Boilers

Oxygen matters. Every living organism on earth needs it in one form or another. While a high efficiency condensing boiler isn't necessarily a living thing, it does work in a system that requires appropriate amounts of oxygen to operate at optimum levels. In that

Efficiency Improvement in Boiler by Trimming Oxygen

Boilers mix air with fuel to provide oxygen in the combustion process. For safety reasons, a small amount of excess air is always provided to assure that all fuel is burned inside the boiler. The level of excess air is dependent on fuel type, burner design and

Improving Boiler System Efficiency: O2 Trim

O 2 Trim senses these changes by measuring the oxygen in the exhaust of the boiler and sending a message back to the servo control system, which will then correct for the changes. These precise adjustments significantly reduce the amount of fuel needed to fire the boiler over time, resulting in energy savings as well as increased operating efficiency.
