Industrial Boiler Operation – Energy Optimization

The boiler is one of the most important and valuable assets of all most all the processing industries around the world. They play a vital role in energy production while devoting significant investments to boilers, especially boiler-feeding fuels. If we consider biomass boilers in Sri Lanka, around 400 biomass boilers are operating, and it uses approximately 3200 MT of biomass to produce the daily demand. The fuel sources for most of the biomass boilers are well-grown trees. Most of the biomass boilers are over 3 tons of steam capacity. Some of the industries are operating 24 hours daily, while the majority is around 12 hours daily routine. Therefore, they consume an enormous amount of firewood to maintain their process for generating high-pressure steam [1]
