Steam Boiler Diesel Consumption

April 30, 2020

Diesel boilers, also known as fuel oil boilers, are industrial boilers that use fuel oil to provide hot water and steam for industrial production. They are also called fuel oil boilers. Fuel oil boilers include not only diesel boilers, but also heavy oil boilers and methanol boilers. With the accelerated implementation of national energy conservation and environmental protection, traditional boilers are gradually being banned by enterprises due to high pollution and high consumption. Diesel boilers are favored by the market because of their clean combustion and no pollution.


5 ton diesel boiler


Our common diesel boiler tonnages are 6 tons of diesel boilers, 10 tons of diesel boilers, 20 tons of diesel boilers, etc., but 5 tons of diesel boilers are rare. In the process of using a diesel boiler, in order to understand whether the purchased diesel boiler is cost-effective, it is necessary to understand the gross oil amount of the diesel boiler.


5 ton diesel steam boiler can produce 5 tons of steam per hour, 5 diesel hot water boiler can heat 50,000 square meters, and an hour can supply 100 tons of hot water. Common models of five-ton diesel boilers are WNS5-1.0-Y, WNS5-1.25-Y, WNS3.5-1.0 / 95 / 70-Y, SZS4-2.5-Y and so on. So, how much diesel is consumed by a five-ton diesel boiler every day?


Calculation formula of diesel boiler fuel consumption: diesel boiler fuel consumption per hour = 3600 * thermal power / calorific value / boiler efficiency.

The thermal efficiency of a 5-ton oil-fired boiler is 3.5MW, and its combustion calorific value is 42.42Mj / kg. The general efficiency of the ZOZEN oil-fired boiler can reach 90%. The fuel consumption = 3600s * 3.5MW / 42.42Mj / kg / 90% = 330kg.


5 ton diesel hot water boiler


It can be calculated from the above: 5 ton diesel boiler consumes 330 kg of diesel fuel per day. 5 ton diesel boiler of ZOZEN boiler is composed of upper and lower drums, membrane-type water-cooled walls, convection tube bundle, energy-saving device and condenser. After the fuel is burned in the furnace, the flue gas is discharged into the chimney through the convection tube bundle and the flue gas waste heat recovery device. Furnace adopts membrane water-cooled wall structure, the boiler adopts airtight inner protective plate with fully enclosed welding structure, and the furnace wall has good sealing; less smoke loss and high thermal efficiency.
