  • 1. DRY FLUE GASES LOSSES IN BOILER SHIVAJI CHOUDHURY 1
  • 2. Challenges  Rising fuel costs which in most of power generating companies are passed through to customer ,caught the attention to regulating agencies.  Regulating agencies are now paying more attention to efficiency of power plants. 2
  • 3. BENEFIT -identification of losses        Efficiency increase Green house gases emission decrease Particulate emission reduction Availability improvement Reduction in O&M cost Less capacity addition Increase profitability 3
  • 4. Boiler losses  1.Moisture losses  2.Dry flue gas losses  3.Incomplete combustion  4.Radiation losses 4
  • 5. Dry Gas Losses ( excess air)  Dry gas losses are those heat losses resulting from the heating of combustion air and fuel from ambient conditions to the temperature of the flue gas leaving the unit .  The magnitude of dry gas losses is directly proportional to the excess airflow and to the difference between the inlet air temperature and the flue gas outlet temperature.  Reducing these losses presents the greatest potential for improving boiler efficiency . 5
  • 6. Dry gas losses  High excess air and lower heat absorption in the boiler system can cause exit gas temperature higher than expected resulting dry gas loss.  A 22 deg C rise in exit temperature can rise the heat rate one percent. 6
  • 7. LOSSES IN BOILER –Design (IN ) 210 MW THERMAL POWER PLANT( AS PER BS 2886) at 100% TMCR 210 MW         DRY GASH2O AND H2 IN FUEL H2O IN AIR UNBURN CARBON RADIATION UNACCOUNTED MANUFACTURER MARGIN TOTAL LOSSES PERCENT 5.1 6.16 0.15 1.2 0.22 0.53 1.00 14.36 7

  • 9. Cause of deviation  Excess air, high O2 at boiler outlet .  In leakage from bottom hopper air preheater/ESP inlet door leakage /open  In leakage from duct, expansion joints.  Excess mill tempering air due to low mill temperature  Incorrect operation of pre warming airpreheater inlet air  Air preheater bypass dampers open  Poor mill performance  Poor preheater efficiency- plugage/fouled; corroded/eroded  Oxygen measurement calibration  Correct on of mills in service for given load  Excess furnace draft (higher draft is worst for in leakage ) 9
  • 10. Operator controllable         Reduce excess air Ensure hopper ,slag ports etc closed tightly Adjust mill primary air Achieve design mill outlet temperature or more Proper soot blowing for air reheater Proper operation of steam coil to prevent fouling and corrosion Proper soot blowing for boiler Proper number of mills in service 10
  • 11. Maintenance -correctable  Repair expansion joints, door gaskets on hoppers and preheater seals.  Repair/replace preheater baskets.  Mill maintenance. 11
  • 12. Optimization Envelope 12
  • 13. Plugging or fouling of APH Plugging or fouling of preheaters can occur on the hot side but is more common on the cold side where moisture has formed due to reaching the dewpoint. In addition to raising the exit gas temperatures, plugging can lead to load reductions.  Ensure proper soot blowing for preheater. Dry superheated steam is normally used as a cleaning medium.  Periodic high pressure washing may be necessary if the pressure drop across the preheater starts to limit fan capability.  13
  • 14. Air inleakage in boiler,preheater or ducts  Run O2 rise test on boiler to locate air inleakage and make repairs.  Air inleakage in the furnace, boiler ducts, expansion joints, or preheater can adversely affect the heat transfer, give false indications of percent O2, and increase fan auxiliaries.  Incoming oxygen rich air also tends to increase the rate of acid deposition increasing the corrosion potential.  O2 readings should be taken at several locations simultaneously to isolate cause of air in leakage. 14
  • 15. Corrosion or erosion in Air Preheater  During the process of combustion, sulfur in the fuel is converted to SO2 and depending on the excess air available, part of the SO2 is converted to SO3. The SO3 reacts with any water vapor present in the preheater to form sulfuric acid (H2SO4).  Ensure proper operation of steam coils or preheater bypass damper to keep the preheater above dew point temperature  If steam coils are used, perform periodic inspections for leaks which would increase water vapor to the preheater  Incoming oxygen-rich air, as a result of air in leakage, tends to increase the rate of acid deposition, increasing the corrosion potential. 15
  • 16. Corrosion in ductwork and ID fan  The ductwork and ID fan housings have suffered damage due to dewpoint corrosion.  Taking into account the money spent on repairs to ductwork and pattern of corrosion ,high nickel alloy should used since it will afford a good degree against corrosion and also provide adequate resistance against mechanical abrasion .  If Carpenter 20(CN7M) is selected ,performance will increase the life of ductwork by a factor of 8 as compared to carbon steel. 16
