Power Service & Solutions
Zeeco’s Power division goes the extra mile for each and every boiler burner project. Our state-of-the-art burner analysis tools can reduce your overall time spent in application engineering, start-up, and conditioning of the burner. Zeeco’s modeling practices gives our engineers true insight into a boiler burner’s performance, including where every pound of air and fuel enter the burner.
Physical Airflow Modeling
Zeeco’s design team builds an accurate, three-dimensional clear plastic model that contains all internal components, venturi meters, orifice plates, and more so engineers can physically visualize air flow to each burner. This allows our team of engineers to:
- Solve distribution issues between burners
- Proper system pressure drop to ensure optimal performance
- Ensure proper distribution of air and fuel to meet all project goals and emissions requirements
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modeling
CFD is a proven modeling tool in the design process used to ensure optimal boiler performance. We analyze the boiler burner’s temperature, velocity, emissions, particle sizes and their interactions within the combustion process. When CFD is used in conjunction with physical flow modeling during a retrofit or performance analysis, combustion engineers can accurately anticipate boiler performance taking into account fuel and air distribution after any solutions indicated by the physical modeling are implemented. CFD modeling focuses on:
- Flame fit within the required boiler confines
- Flame behavior and interactions between fuels and respective burners
- Emissions predictions
Firing system temperature profiles for the boiler and downstream heat transfer surfaces
Turnkey Boiler Burner & Power Solutions
From plant conversions and burning opportunity fuels to upgrading or retrofitting your existing burners, Zeeco’s turnkey boiler burner solutions team will engineer and design the most cost-effective solution for your boiler burner or power project. Turnkey boiler burner solutions include the design and engineering of next-generation ultra-low NOx , ultra-low-NOx power burners, duct burners for Heat Recovery Steam Generation (HRSG) applications, safety analysis and assurance, equipment purchasing, burner fabrication, structural review, on-site supervision, contractor management, and installation. For each boiler burner project, we use state-of-the-art practices including physical air flow modeling and advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to model specific conditions against the actual equipment design. Zeeco’s turnkey solution will ensure you have the most effective burner design to meet all environmental regulations and operational requirements.
Once a contract is finalized and awarded, Zeeco’s team will ensure the project’s success, down to the most minute details. We supply all labor, on-site supervision, tools, equipment, consumables, safety equipment, piping, tubing, hangers, supports, structural steel, wiring, conduit, cable tray, junction boxes and any other miscellaneous materials and support services required to complete the installation. Zeeco's on-site project manager will ensure safe and proper installation of all equipment and to maintain the set project schedule. Following a complete system checkout, the project manager will commission, and then turn over, a fully operational turnkey boiler burner system to you and your in-house team.
Turnkey boiler burner solutions include:
Commissioning & Start-Up Services
Each ZEECO boiler burner or duct burner project begins with a pre-bid analysis including a comprehensive site review. Our experienced team selects the ideal equipment and develops contractor bid specifications that detail every step of the project. The result is the most complete proposal in the business, completely devoid of hidden ongoing expenses that could otherwise lead to significant wasted expense and additional costs.
Our team then focuses on ensuring the project’s success. Zeeco can supply all labor, on-site supervision, tools, equipment, and any other miscellaneous materials and support services required to complete the installation. You will have an on-site project manager whose job is to ensure the safe and proper installation of all equipment and to maintain the set project schedule. This manager will be your on-site contact from the beginning of the installation all the way through final start-up and commissioning. Following a complete system checkout, your project manager will commission, and then turn over, a fully operational system to you and your in-house team.
