interpretation of steam boiler load

Thermalhydraulic analysis of a steam boiler with rifled ...

Feb 01 2007 · On the basis of the presented dependence of the circulation number on the steam boiler load in Fig. 5 and with the aim at the fast prediction of the evaporator thermalhydraulic parameters in the operation the following relation is derived: (29) = 26.521-53.7033 D + 41.075 D 2-11.2917 D 3 where the fluid total mass flow rate through the evaporator is calculated as (30) M be = D and the steam

Boiler Efficiency | How to balance steam loads efficiently ...

Aug 26 2011 · Table 1 shows performance variation as a function of load. The boiler with an economizer generates 100000 lb/h of saturated steam at 400 psig using natural gas. At load the exit gas temperature is 320 °F. Excess air is 15%. The various losses (per ASME PTC 4.1) are shown along with the efficiency. The efficiency variation isnt much with load.

Boiler Ratings and Boiler Load - Alken-Murray

Boiler Ratings and Boiler Load . The oldest method of rating boilers still used to rate small boilers is by horsepower (hp). One horsepower is defined as the ability to evaporate 34.5 lbs of water into steam at 212 deg. F and above. Large boiler capacity is generally given in lbs of steam evaporated per hour under specified steam conditions.
