In the industry significant amounts of energy are lost via the stack. Stack losses are concentrated and therefore a great place to recover heat. However acid dew point corrosion has been stopping operators from recovering this heat. But not any longer! Interested to recover more heat from your ? Download our white paper to learn more.
The losses can be calculated as: L 6 = m& bd h + m& sb hsb + m& atomizing hatomizing (13) m& bd is the mass flow of blowdown water [kg/s] h is the specific enthalpy of saturated water (blowdown water from steam drum) [kJ/kg] m& sb is the mass flow of sootblowing steam hsb is the specific enthalpy of steam used for sootblowing (when leaving the boiler) m& atomizing is the mass flow of
