Boiler Efficiency Analysis

Engineering Equipment India is concerned with calculating boiler efficiency as one of the vital performance measurement in any steam power plant for Maximising Energy Efficiency.

Boiler Performance Monitoring

Boilers efficiency is based on various factors. The aim of monitoring boiler performance is to control the heat rate of plant and to have Peak performance of the Boiler. Our Boiler peak performance efficiency initiative is in determination of operating efficiency of boiler and calculate major losses any power plant.

The heat rate of a conventional coal fired power plant is a measure of how efficiently it converts the energy contained in the fuel into power energy. In the operational life of a boiler ensuring efficient operation of boiler is critical to optimize the fuel costs.

Is your Boiler not working at the its rated efficiency?

EEI consultants found that boilers operate at much lower than the rated efficiencies if efficiency monitoring is not done. Boiler efficiency is a combined result of efficiencies of different equipment of a boiler.

EEI experts check the boiler combustion efficiency and thermal efficiency of the boiler and boiler components.

What is Combustion efficiency of Boiler?

The combustion efficiency of a boiler is the indication of burner’s ability to burn fuel.

What is Thermal Efficiecncy of Boiler?

Thermal efficiency of a boiler indicates the effectiveness of the transfer of heat from heat exchanger to boiler tubes. Thermal efficiency will be badly affected by scale formation/soot formation on the boiler tubes.

Boiler Performance Indicator

The other parameters which will also be checked by EEI consultants are the on-off losses, radiation losses, convection losses, blow down losses which have a direct or indirect impact on the efficiency of the boiler performance.

Monitoring and maintaining the boiler for the overall operational life of the boiler is a must for the profitability of the organisation.

Residual Life Assessment

Engineering Equipment India consultants inspect ageing Boilers for extending the life of the Boiler to ensure that the organization is informed early about failures and cost effective method is carried out to reduce the risk of catastrophic failures. RLA allows advanced outage planning.

Residual Life Assessment (RLA) is important to maintain the efficient operation of a process plant and avoid failure of critical equipment like pressure vessels, piping, storage tank, valves, pumps, compressors, boilers, turbine which lead to losses because of the downtime. RLA is a statutory requirement as per IBR regulation “391A”.

EEI Automated on-site inspection

EEI method of automated on-site system eradicates delays, misconception and human errors and is finest technique to detect hydrogen damage zone.

EEI consultants evaluate the present condition of pressure parts & piping to avoid premature pressure parts failure and associated unforeseen outages. We check the root cause of problems also identify the problem areas.

EEI experts give estimation of balance life of pressure parts.

Our consultants adopt various methods for residual life assessment which includes review of past data, visual and dimensional inspection of the boilers and equipment, micro controlled ultrasonic test and dye-penetration test of high temperature headers & piping, hardness measurement, replication for metallography, oxide scale thickness measurement of the inside the tube using micro controlled UT, video scope examination, sampling of the tube and laboratory testing, locating hot spots. with general arrangement and detail of boiler,
