Abstract:

Extensive tests have been conducted in an in-service boiler to determine the measurable benefits of firing water in no. 6 oil emulsions. Emulsions of 3, 6, 9, and 12 water concentrations have been fired during normal boiler operations. Although the emulsions could be fired satisfactorily without modifications to boiler equipment, the test results show that improvements, if any, in overall boiler efficiency or emissions were ambiguous.
