Performance audit

Performance audits are an important part the maintenance strategy for combustion boilers. BurrowX was contracted to perform a performance audit on a 25 MW Biomass boiler. The audit entailed physical inspections, historical data analysis and calculations onsite. Since the audit the facility was able to improve steam quality, reduce soot accumulation and improve feed water quality.

Performance audits can identify issues with combustion, heat transfer fouling, poor operational control systems, poor fuel quality or poor water quality. It is important that these audits are done on an annual basis and in certain areas on a seasonal basis. In the energy business every kilowatt counts and a thorough performance audit will show where every kilowatt is going.
