Average dew point temperatures for typical fuels like
- manufactured gas
- natural gas
are indicated in the charts below
Excess air is the ratio of air supplied to the combustion process to what is theoretically required for perfect combustion (stoichiometric combustion).
Boiler house topics, fuels like oil, gas, coal, wood - chimneys, safety valves, tanks - combustion efficiency.
Optimizing boilers efficiency is important to minimize fuel consumption and unwanted excess to the environment.
Combusting testing of fuel oil and gas burners.
Flue gas dew point temperatures and condensation of water vapor.
Combustion air and flue gas for common fuels - coke, oil, wood, natural gas and more.
Stable and efficient combustion requires correct mixture of fuels and oxygen.
Properties like heat values, air/fuel ratios, flame speed, flame temperatures, ignition temperatures, flash points and flammability limits.
Stoichiometric combustion and excess air.
