The report provides estimates of capital and operating costs for industrial boilers. Costs are related to the type of fuel fired, firing design and rated capacity. Both package and field-erected boilers are evaluated. Fuels considered include coal, residual oil, distillate oil and natural gas. Firing designs for coal include underfeed-stoker, spreader-stoker and pulverized. Rated capacities range from 15(10 to the 6th)Btu/hr for oil and gas to 700(10 to the 6th)Btu/hr for coal. Costs are developed on a study estimate basis. Individual boiler cost estimates were plotted and cost equations developed for total equipment, installation (direct and indirect) and operating costs (variable and fixed).
