    Slow Combustion - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    James G. Speight PhD, DSc, in Handbook of Industrial Hydrocarbon Processes, 2011. 3 Slow combustion. Slow combustion (smoldering) is the slow, low-temperature, flameless form of combustion, sustained by the heat evolved when oxygen directly attacks the surface of a condensed-phase fuel.It is a typically incomplete combustion reaction. Solid materials that can sustain a …

    Combustion Basics | CleanBoiler.org

    Combustion is the rapid combination of oxygen with a fuel, such as natural gas, resulting in the release of heat. Most fuels contain carbon and hydrogen, and the oxygen usually comes from air. Combustion generally consists of the following overall reactions:

    Natural Gas Fired Boilers

    The boiler efficiency is usually reduced to 84-85%, when a coal fired boiler is converted to natural gas. The biggest change is due to the combustion of Hydrogen. This is normally a 4% heat loss while firing coal and about a 11% heat loss while firing natural gas.

    Boiler/Burner Combustion Air Supply Requirements and

    As a "rule of thumb," 1 ft 3 of natural gas theoretically requires 10 ft 3 of air for complete combustion at 60°F and 14.7 psi under perfect conditions. Of course, this never happens, therefore burner combustion air fans may be sized for 25% excess air, in which case the fan would deliver 12.5 ft 3 of air per 1 ft 3 of natural gas.

    Air Fuel Ratio Effect on Combustion Efficiency

    Oct 23, 2013 · For natural gas fired burners, the stoichiometric air required is 9.4-11 ft. 3 / 1.0 ft. 3 of natural gas, or approximately an air-to-gas ratio of approximately 10:1. This results in an excess oxygen level of 2%. In the combustion zone, it is difficult to measure excess air. In the stack, however, it can be easily measured using Oxygen analyzers.

    Improve Your Boiler’s Combustion Efficiency

    A boiler operates for 8,000 hours per year and annually consumes 500,000 million Btu (MMBtu) of natural gas while producing 45,000 lb/hour of 150-psig steam. Stack gas measurements indicate an excess air level of 44.9% with a flue gas minus combustion air temperature of 400°F. From the table, the boiler combustion efficiency is 78.2% (E1).

    Example - Oil Combustion and Heat Loss in the Flue Gas. If. the temperature difference between the flue gas leaving a boiler and the ambient supply temperature is 300 o C, and; the carbon dioxide measured in the flue gas is 10% - then, from the diagram above. the flue gas loss can be estimated to approximately 16%.

    Tips on properly sizing the combustion air openings | 2016

    Sep 28, 2016 · As a grizzled old boiler room veteran now, I see many boiler rooms with inadequate combustion air. According to the International Fuel Gas Code, Section 304, each boiler room should have two openings, one within a foot of the floor and one within a foot of the ceiling. This is to allow natural ventilation inside the boiler room.
