2016-11-08 16:23:03

How many gas will it consume in a steam boiler? Well, it is a good question. Mostly it will depend on which kind of gas you use. Take natural gas boiler as an example, we will see how to calculate the 1 ton gas boiler fuel consumption.

Calculation of Gas Required For a Steam Boiler

1 ton gas fired steam boiler in textile factory of Bangladesh

1. Fuel heat value: natural gas 8800KCal/m3
2. 1 ton boiler needs heat 600000KCal/h (1KCal = 4.187Kj=4.187KW
3. 0.7mw=700KW=700*3600Kj=700*3600/4.187KCal=601863KCal≈600000KCal)
4. Gas boiler thermal efficiency: 92%
So we can calculate the gas consumption per hour = 600000/8800/0.92=74m3
