Conversion of Existing Coal-Fired Boilers to Natural Gas Firing

Evaporating this water uses a portion of the flue gas energy, thus, lowering boiler efficiency. This efficiency loss is offset somewhat by the lower amount of excess air required to burn natural gas. Boiler efficiency decreases are to be expected in the 3% to 4% range, depending on the current fuel and boiler design.

The Role of Coal Characteristics in Boiler Operation

In short, lower Btu coal will increase the pounds of coal to be handled and when the variations are large enough we can expect a reduction in boiler capacity. Higher Btu coal seldom gives any pro- blems in boiler operation or performance. See Figure 1 for typical heating values of various coals found in the United States.
