Replacing a Steam Boiler

Engineered Systems, Jun 2016, by Ray Wohlfarth.

"When designing or replacing a low pressure steam boiler, throw out everything you know about hydronic boilers. A steam system is closer in operation to an air conditioning unit than it is to a hydronic boiler. If you design a steam system using hydronic design methods, it will not operate properly. A hydronic system uses sensible heat while a steam system uses both sensible and latent heat. Sensible heat can be measured with a thermometer while latent heat causes a change of state and cannot be measured accurately with a thermometer. The following are some of the steps I take when designing a replacement steam system."

A Tale Of Three Boiler Plants

Engineered Systems, Jan. 2016, by Daniel McJacobson.
http://www.esmagazine.com/articles/97513-a-tale-of-three-boiler-plants

"School, warehouse, office building … the boiler stories they tell put the focus back on specific circumstances and smart pre-design study to ensure their systems (and budgets) enjoy the best of times for as long as possible. There is a widely held belief that high efficiency is always best. However, this is not necessarily the case."

What Boiler MACT Means to an Energy Engineer

Hudson Technologies, Oct. 15, 2015.
http://www.hudsontech.com/global-energy-news/what-boiler-mact-means-to-an-energy-engineer/

"Boiler MACT [Maximum Achievable Control Technology] is one of the first federal environmental regulations that have specifically called for conducting an energy assessment as a compliance activity. Energy assessments are nothing new; but how does integrating them into an environmental compliance activity impact the assessment process? As energy engineers, what can we learn from this new frontier?"

Boiler Design & Selection: What Engineers Should Keep In Mind

Engineered Systems, Feb. 2015, by Mark Avron and Matthew Freeman.
http://www.esmagazine.com/articles/96978-boiler-design-selection-what-engineers-should-keep-in-mind

"In the maze of specification choices, the customer's specific needs should still guide the design. Footprints and retrofits, associated pump/valve costs, and application type all point toward condensing or not, and high- or low-mass equipment. Find your way to long-term performance."
