Many clients ask the question how many fuel it consumes in a boiler. Well, it’s hard to answer, we know, there are different types of boilers, different fuels, different combustion types, and different sizes, all these factors can change the answer. But here I will briefly give a fuel consumption sheet for reference only.

Fuel Consumption In  A Boiler

Fuel Boiler Type 1t/h 2t/h 3t/h 4t/h 6t/h 8t/h 10t/h 15t/h 20t/h


Coal kg
