units. Thermal energy in the form of natural gas is used to generate hot water and steam, which is then used in brewing, packaging and general building heating. Electrical energy is used to power all equipment, with the largest user being refrigeration. Thermal sources average 70% of the energy Boiler house 5% Refrigeration 35% Packaging 25%

Industrial boiler technology for beginners

At full capacity a boiler of this size converts 3 000 litres of fuel oil or a corresponding amount of natural gas to thermal or process heat every hour. This would be sufficient to heat more than 2 000 houses. Because of the huge volume of water and the multi-stage lead-through of

Glossary | S&P Global Platts

One AAU represents one metric ton of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas. The amount held by each country is determined by the 1990 emissions baseline and national Kyoto target for 2008-2012. The heat is routed to a conventional boiler or to a heat recovery steam generator for use by a steam turbine in the production of electricity. This process

The Kraft Recovery Process - TAPPI

The amount of steam produced is typically about 3.5 kg per kg black liquor solids, but can range from 2.5 to about 3.8 kg steam per kg black liquor solids, depending on the thermal efficiency of the recovery boiler. The high pressure steam is passed through a steam turbine to generate electricity. Depending on the quality of the

Claus Process - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Claus Process. Claus processes consist of a thermal reactor furnace, where the acid gas (mainly H2S) is fed together with combustion air, a waste heat boiler to recover heat and generate medium pressure steam, a series of sulfur condenser and a series of catalytic reactors (packed bed reactors for sulfur removal and organosulfur hydrolysis).
