Calculate the fuel costs to run one boiler in this plant at full capacity as
specified on the flow diagram.
information about heat transfer efficiency, fuel heating value, fuel costs. If given as homework, students can be required to research typical values for some or all of these parameters.
Efficiency, heating value
(Research in technical literature)
(2) Calculate the cost to operate a process
(3) (Optional) Search for information outside the current course text to complete engineering problems.
