New Data Sheet Analyzing Combustion Efficiency Available From Howe-Baker
An aid in determining possible fuel cost savings derived from burner upgrading is now available from Howe-Baker Engineers, Inc. The data sheet, consisting of four different graphs depicting natural gas, propane, No. 2 (diesel) oil, and No. 6 oil, is a valuable guide for virtually every operating, power, plant, chemical, and mechanical engineer interested in combustion efficiency as a function of excess oxygen in the flue gas and flue gas temperature.
Data is based on typical anticipated efficiency of a retrofitted Econoflex burner—a dual-phase, multi-port type that permits combustion at high efficiency at low excess air. The Econoflex burner, with its relatively short flame length and soot-free burn, permits retrofitting existing boilers and heaters without the possibility of flames impinging on tubes or depositing soot and reducing heat transfer. In addition, the new Econoflex burner sharply reduces the need for tube replacement, as heat is transferred mostly by radiation thereby extending tube life.
