This manual provides general guidance to operators of oil- and gas-fired boilers to increase boiler efficiency, improve fuel consumption, and to reduce pollutant emissions. Boiler operating principles and suggestions to improve boiler performance are discussed. Combustion is explained in simple terms. Various heat losses are described, and suggestions are given on means to minimize or eliminate heat losses. The manual describes boiler adjustments for peak operating efficiency, optimum fuel consumption, and reduced pollutant emissions. Efficiency, fuel consumption, and emissions are all sensitive to many of the same boiler operating parameters. This manual describes feasible operating techniques and combustion adjustments to achieve clean, safe, and efficient boiler operation.
