Effect of Additives on Boiler Cleanliness and Particulate Emissions

  • Ira Kukin
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 2)


The use of concentrated metal-containing, additives in oil-fired furnaces is common practice today. This is particularly true with boilers having high superheat and reheat temperatures and high heat release. Such additives improve boiler cleanliness and reduce corrosion of the firesides and air heaters. They also are effective for reducing stack emissions. The plumes from the stacks, particularly when they result from hydrocarbons or sulfuric acid (from SO3) are improved.
