“Fuel shift saves Energy cost at an Oil Refinery in India”
Thermax have Designed, manufactured & commissioned Pulverized coal fired Boilers for an Oil refinery in India. These units are designed to generate 750 TPH ( 510 MW equivalent ) of steam at 540ºC .
The special feature of this design allow the Boiler to be run (upto 100% capacity)on any of the fuels like pulverized coal / Naptha /Clarified Slurry oil/ Heavy Fuel Oil .
Another feature is the B&W MPS mills which ensure good pulverisation of the coal & efficient burning. Design features like Staged combustion, particulate capture ensures compliance to emission norms set for the area.
Earlier this refinery was using Oil for their power & steam requirements and these new boilers have reduced the energy costs by approximately 50% (based on prevailing Oil & Coal costs)
These boiler has been successfully commissioned and are in continuous operation for over 10,000 hours
