The article discusses the improved efficiency of boiler systems through energy auditing which lessens facility operating costs and preserves equipment function in the U.S. It notes that efficiency retrofitting of a pressure vessel can result in fuel savings which will make room for equipment upgrades. It mentions that boiler efficiency can be quantified by stack-gas-analysis in a combustion test.
