Engineering Steam Efficiency
4 to 200klb/hour in 300 seconds!
An upgrade turns an old existing backup boiler into a
Ultra High Turndown Fast Ramp Boiler
1/10th the cost of a fast ramp boiler
LyondellBassell Morris Illinois Boiler 6 was upgraded with CompuNOx Controls providing the cogeneration plant the optimum solution for backup steam . Benz Air upgraded a 250klb/hour 650psig, 740F superheat boiler with a new burner management and combustion control system resulting in a phenominal 58 to one turndown, capable of ramping to 200klb/hour within 300 seconds! Once requiring over 20 minutes to meet half load, the newly upgraded "hot rod" boiler with its extremely low turndown saves over $3000/day in energy costs while providing redundant backup steam. Percolating at 4300lb/hour, the boiler's paracitic electrical consumption is less than 1kw, the main flame operation allowing fast ramp to meet any disruption in cogenerated steam supply without having to go through prepurge.
