ABSTRACT
The article discusses the considerations for industrial boiler operators that switch boiler fuels from coal, oil or biomass to the cheaper natural gas. It explains that changing boiler fuels could change the stoichiometry, combustion air requirements, and combustion products affecting temperatures, velocities and heat absorption in the furnace. It suggests that boiler operators conduct a comprehensive feasibility study that evaluates gas-and steam-side and their impact on boiler performance.
