IMPROVED MARINE BOILER RELIABILITY. PHASE II. VOLUME IV. STACK GAS ANALYSIS

This report presents the results of shipboard testing of a modern marine boiler for stack gas constituents related to corrosion and air quality. Special instrumentation and gas sampling equipment was used to obtain stack gas concentrations of oxygen, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, sulfur trioxide, water vapor, and nitrogen oxides. Tests were performed at six boiler load ratings ranging from 11% to 110% over a wide range of excess air levels. Results obtained serve to characterize the conversion of SO2 to SO3 for the test boiler and permit the calculation of sulfuric acid dew point, demonstrating the dependence of dew point temperature on excess air level and boiler load. Nitrogen oxides were recorded over the complete test range (including an in-port condition) to establish a relationship between stack emissions, boiler load, and excess air for the boiler under test.
