How to Reduce Steam System Operating Costs using Vent Condensers

When we use saturated steam for heating, the steam condenses, giving up its latent heat and changing from the vapour to the liquid phase. The condensate produced is either discharged to drain or collected for reuse. The latter option is preferred, as this condensate comprises high-quality water containing a significant amount of energy.

How do Stack Losses affect Boiler Efficiency?

Simply put, boiler efficiency is a measure of the efficiency with which the energy added to the steam system (through fuels such as coal, gas, paraffin/kerosene, biomass etc.) is converted into energy that is usefully added to the boiler feed water to produce steam.
