Saving energy - reducing costs - protecting the environment: modernise with Bosch
The life expectancy of a boiler system is between 20 and 40 years. Typical efficiency gains achieved by replacing or modernising old systems is between 10 and 30 percent, depending on the initial situation. At current fuel costs, even extensive measures often pay for themselves in just a short time.
There are many different ways of increasing efficiency and saving energy in boiler systems. Available technologies, such as economizers, condensing heat exchangers and air preheating systems, reduce fuel costs enormously. Burner systems with speed and oxygen control also make a not insignificant contribution and help to minimise emissions. There is further potential for saving for example from condensate recovery, since less fresh water has to be provided in the use of energy. Process-related heat loss, which is contained for example in exhaust vapour or desalting water, can similarly be recovered by means of suitable solutions.
The investment in energy-optimised systems is cost-effective for companies in many different ways: a higher level of energy efficiency reduces production costs, minimises CO2 emissions and strengthens the power of innovation, thereby increasing competitiveness. The new technical report with the title “Energy, cost and emission-saving solutions for shell steam boiler systems” from Bosch Industriekessel shows how potential savings in energy and costs can be realised with a wide range of concepts.
