    • Boiler Efficiency vs. Steam Quality- The Challenge of Creating Quality Steam Using Existing Boiler Efficiencies 

      Hahn, G. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1998-04)
      A boiler works under pressure and it is not possible to see what is happening inside of it. The terms "wet steam" and "carry over" are every day idioms in the steam industry, yet very few people have ever seen these phenomena ...
    • Boiler Efficiency--Consider All the Angles 

      Blakeley, C. P. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1981)
      The cost of steam has become a very real part of Product cost. U.S. Industry strives to become more fuel efficient, while increasing productivity. At the same time it must adhere to stringent emission regulations. The plant ...
    • Combustion Catalysts in Industry - An Update 

      Merrell, G. A.; Knight, R. S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      Combustion catalysts improve boiler efficiency by extracting more heat energy from the fuel and by reducing heat losses when operating at minimum excess air. In addition, an effective combustion catalyst may reduce the ...
    • Computer Control of Boiler Operation 

      Pareja, G. E. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1981)
      Rapidly rising energy costs present the opportunity for substantial cost savings through improved boiler combustion control. A process computer control system was installed at an Air Products & Chemicals facility in 1978. ...
    • Condensing Heat Exchanger for Optimization of Energy Efficiency 

      Carrigan, J. F.; Johnson, D. W.; DiVitto, J. G.; Schulze, K. H. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1995-04)
      Historically, boiler efficiency has been limited due to the minimum temperature allowed at the stack. Heat lost up the stack was in exchange for keeping the flue gas temperature above the water vapor dew point. If water ...
    • Control System Design for Effective Energy Utilization...A Case Study 

      Dziubakowski, D. J.; Keyes, M. A., IV (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1980)
      This paper describes the activities and results of a typical plant powerhouse energy management survey. The powerhouse provides electrical energy, steam supply at two different pressure levels, and compressed air for the ...
    • Energy Conservation Through Use of Boiler Economizers (Economic and Practical Considerations) 

      Roethe, L. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      One of the most productive means of obtaining conservation of energy lies in the improvement of the fuel-to-steam efficiency of high pressure steam generating boilers. Boilers operating at steam pressures of 100 psig and ...
    • "Greening" Industrial Steam Generation via On-demand Steam Systems 

      Smith, J. P. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2010)
      Both recent economic and environmental conditions in the U.S. have converged to bring about unprecedented attention to energy efficiency and sustainability in the country's industrial sector. Historically, energy costs in ...
    • Why the Accuracy of Analytical Instrumentation Affects Boiler Combustion Efficiency 

      McFadden, R. W. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Combustion trim control systems are utilized to maximize the combustion efficiency of a boiler. The type and cost of a fuel, as well as the size of a boiler, should be considered when selecting the type of combustion trim ...
