Assessment Topic

The report provides estimates of capital and operating costs for industrial boilers. Costs are related to the type of fuel fired, firing design and rated capacity. Both package and field-erected boilers are evaluated. Fuels considered include coal, residual oil, distillate oil and natural gas. Firing desings for coal include underfeed-stoker, spreader-stoker and pulverized. Rated capacities range from 15 (10 o) Btu/hr for oil and gas to 700 (10 6) Btu/hr for coal. Costs are developed on a study estimate basis. Individual boiler cost estimates were plotted and cost equations developed for total equipment, installation (direct and indirect) and operating costs (variable and fixed).
