Case Name: EPCB Boiler Bangladesh Textile Factory 6T Coal fired Boiler

A customer of a textile factory in Bangladesh, a biomass boiler that has been in operation for 10 years, had uneven combustion and excessive smoke emissions in 2023, affecting production efficiency and environmental protection standards.

After receiving feedback from the customer, EPCB Boiler immediately dispatched a technical team to the site. First, EPCB engineers conducted a comprehensive inspection of the biomass boiler system, including key parts such as the combustion system, furnace, heat exchanger and exhaust system. The inspection found that the grate had serious ash accumulation, which affected the combustion efficiency; the smoke accumulated on the surface of the furnace and heat exchanger, resulting in a significant decrease in thermal efficiency; the exhaust system was blocked to a certain extent, causing uneven fuel combustion.

According to the inspection structure, EPCB Boiler formulated a comprehensive maintenance plan, including:

Combustion system maintenance: thoroughly clean the ash on the grate, adjust the combustion air ratio, and optimize the combustion efficiency.

Cleaning of the furnace and heating surface: Use high-pressure water jet technology to clean the smoke on the surface of the furnace and heat exchanger to restore the heat exchange efficiency.

Exhaust system renovation: clean flues and chimneys, optimize flue gas emission paths, add flue gas recirculation systems, and reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.

Environmental upgrade: install desulfurization and dust removal devices to ensure that smoke and sulfur dioxide emissions meet standards.

After reaching an agreement with the factory, the EPCB Boiler underwent two weeks of maintenance, during which the factory operators were trained on boiler maintenance knowledge to ensure that subsequent routine maintenance can be carried out effectively. After the maintenance was completed, the third-party test showed that the thermal efficiency of the boiler increased by about 10%, and the smoke emission concentration and nitrogen oxide emissions were both lower than the national standards, successfully solving the environmental protection problem. At the same time, by optimizing the combustion system and reducing energy consumption, the factory’s steam production costs were effectively controlled.
