Boiler Upgrades that will Save Fuel and Energy on Industrial and Commercial Boilers from 50 HP and UP! Clip 1 of 6. Recorded webinar from Industrial Controls with speakers Bill Hopler, Mike Handler, Chuck Kudy, and Bob Thomas. May 12, 2010.
-How the traditional "jack shaft" mechanical linkage system works
-Why the "jack shaft" linkage is inefficient and wastes energy
-What a typical boiler efficiency curve looks like
-What the "linkage-less" system looks like and how it works
-Why customers that have upgraded are saving 5% or more on their natural gas/oil bill
-Actual projects that have been completed, before and after results
-Other places to save energy in the boiler room
What You Will Learn:
We will review how the air/fuel ratio system works on your boiler, and why a "jack shaft" system is inefficient and wastes energy. You will also learn why mechanical linkage systems can be adjusted to match your boilers' efficiency curve. This webinar will help you understand how the "linkage-less" system works and how to determine if your boilers are a candidate for 4-10 % fuel savings. In addition, we will discuss how to estimate your energy savings and how to get started on a project.
