The goal of any boiler owner is to have their equipment performing as efficiently and reliably as possible. Efficiency for boilers can be measured three distinct ways: combustion efficiency, thermal efficiency and fuel-to-steam efficiency.
Combustion efficiency is a measure of the burner performance. The amount of excess air (or additional oxygen to ensure complete combustion), when combined with the stack temperature, can be plotted on an efficiency curve. In general, combustion efficiency will increase with a decrease in excess air and lower stack temperature, so optimal burner performance can be achieved. Recommended excess air levels are available in the burner manufacturer’s literature and should be maintained with periodic combustion analyzer testing.

Thermal efficiency is an indicator of the ability of the boiler vessel to transfer heat from the combustion process to the water or steam in the boiler. Thermal efficiency does not account for radiation and convection losses due to the boilers shell or other components (piping, water column, etc.).
Fuel-to-steam efficiency is most commonly referred to as “boiler efficiency.” It takes the radiation and convection losses into account and is a more involved test than the previous two. ASME Power Test Code PTC 4.1 has two methods for determining fuel-to-steam efficiency: the input-output method and the heat loss method. The input-output method is determined by the ratio of boiler Btu output divided by boiler Btu input multiplied by 100. This heat balance method determines the % efficiency by subtracting the stack, radiation and convection losses from 100.
The efficiency of a boiler is an important factor when selecting a boiler and it is critical that the values used when comparing boilers are on the same basis. Today, there are many options to help make boilers operate more efficiently including high turn down controls, oxygen trim, variable frequency drives and extended surface economizers. Contact a ZG Boiler sales representative today to discuss ZG Boiler’s Best Performance Standards (BPS) boilers, equipped with the latest efficiency upgrades to ensure the most efficient boiler operation.
