Burning of wood waste in boilers is mostly confined to those industries to obtain heat energy and to alleviate possible solid waste disposal problems. In boilers, wood waste is normally burned in the form of hogged wood, bark, sawdust, shavings, chips, mill rejects, sander dust, wood trim, pellets or briquettes. Usually wood, bark or mixture of wood and bark waste is burned most frequently in the pulp mills, lumber, furniture, and plywood industries. From the chemical point of view, there is a wide variation in the properties for various woods and it is composed of:
- Volatile Matter: 25%–40%
- Ash: 1%–2%
- Moisture (Wood): 40%–65%
- Calorific Value: 2000 to 2500 Kcal
Our Wood Additive is a free-flowing powder treatment designed primarily as combustion catalyst for Wood which helps to reduce loss due to unburnt fuel resulting in improved combustion efficiency. It has an anti–fouling agent that helps to keep heat transfer surfaces clean and thus improves the steam generation for same heat transfer area. It also softens the hard clinker and reducing the tendency of hard clinker formation, thus helps in reducing the boiler maintenance, provide ease in cleaning and increase the boiler availability for long term operation. It promotes smoke free combustion at lower excess air levels, resulting in improved fuel economy.
