Boiler Ratings | Spirax Sarco

The 'from and at' rating is widely used as a datum by shell boiler manufacturers to give a boiler a rating which shows the amount of steam in kg/h which the boiler can create 'from and at 100°C',at atmospheric pressure. Each kilogram of steam would then have received 2 257 kJ of heat from the boiler. Shell boilers are often operated

Efficiency factors in natural gas fired steam boilers

Assuming the boiler has 75 t/h capacity, high pressure steam is produced at 38 bar and 440°C which represents 59 Gcal/h of thermal power. When this boiler works at 90% efficiency, thermal power becomes 53 Gcal/h. Due to a high oxygen level in the boiler, a 1.4% loss in efficiency occurs and thermal power reduces by 0.74 Gcal/h to 52.3 Gcal/h.

Common Steam Boiler Problems & How to Troubleshoot Repairs

Poor water quality can severely damage your boiler system. Minerals, like calcium and others, in the water can accumulate in the boiler and pipes as scale deposits. These deposits can slow the passage of steam through the system or block it entirely. In fact, scale is the most significant contributor to efficiency loss in your steam boiler system.
