Title: Economics of retrofitting industrial boilers from oil to coal--oil mixture firing

Abstract

The Process Evaluation Office has completed a preliminary cost study of industrial boilers for the Combustion Division, Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center, Department of Energy. The cost of firing No. 6 fuel oil boilers with coal--oil mixtures (COM) of 50 percent by weight coal was determined. For a given set of operating conditions, fuel savings to justify retrofit costs were determined for 100,000-, 500,000-, and 1,000,000-pound-per-hour steam boilers. The sensitivity of retrofit cost to load factors and to costs of No. 6 oil was examined.
