Measures to enhance efficiency for thermal oil plants
Choice primary energy
Oil, gas or electricity? When selecting the primary energy there are considerable saving potentials. higher acquisition costs will amortize quickly.
Reduce pressure drops
The higher the pressure drops, the higher is the electricity consumption of auxiliary equipment such as pumps.
Correct heat transfer medium
High heat capacity and good thermal conductivity, paired with low viscosity and high thermostability are decisive.
Combustion air preheating
The efficiency for fired boilers is significantly increased over 90 % with air preheating – this reduces the fuel consumption and emissions.
