Minimizing Steam Production at Stand-byCosts & Benefits
|Energy Savings Potential||
Energy savings up to 85% of the standby boiler are achieved by installing the control system and modifying the boiler. Actual figures depend on the use pattern of the boiler (Worrell and Galitsky, 2005 p.39).
By applying this system, a plant in Netherlands reduced standby steam consumption from a small 40 t/hr steam boiler from 6 t/hr to 1 t/hr. This resulted in energy savings of 57 PJ/year (CADDET, 1997).
