{{ 'Replacing Boiler Burners' | limitTo: 50 }}

The burner is the true driver of fuel use and costs in a boiler. After about 10 to 15 years of service, linkage joints, cams and other moving parts wear out, and the burner loses its ability to keep tight control on the fuel-air ratio.

We will explore the mechanical devices that can be applied to the burner to control the fuel/air ratio, and how a higher degree of sophistication can result in better overall performance.

{{ 'Burner Maintenance Plan' | limitTo: 50 }}

Unexpected boiler equipment failure can be dangerous and typically results in lost productivity and revenue. These issues can be avoided or greatly mitigated by properly implementing a preventative maintenance plan.

{{ 'Reducing NOx Emissions' | limitTo: 50 }}

In the boiler-burner industry, most experts agree that NO comprises about 95% of total NOx, with NO2 making up the remaining 5%. However, studies that are more recent have shown that NO2 can make up an appreciable amount of the total NOx formed, particularly at very low NOx levels.

{{ 'Restoring Boiler Efficiency' | limitTo: 50 }}

Most of the time, boiler systems in operation for 10 years or more are only 60- to 70-percent efficient, which wastes unnecessary energy and money every day. After about 10 to 15 years of service, a typical burner loses its effectiveness.
