Boiler MACT

The EPA has put forth new regulations for boilers known as the Boiler MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technology). This regulation will require that commercial and industrial boilers across the United States will need to meet the new emission standards and work practice principles. While it may seem like a long ways off, a year is only just enough time to make sure your facility is up to the new rules.

Valmet Power can help you determine if your boilers need to be tuned up to meet the EPA’s new requirements (specifically Boiler Area Source Rule:40 CFR part 63 Subpart JJJJJJ). Our tune-up will reestablish the air-fuel mixture for the operating range of the boiler and balance oxygen and unburned fuel to deliver safer and more efficient combustion. Ultimately the tune-up will improve the boiler efficiency regarding combustion operations.

In order for Valmet to provide these services we have deployed a team of qualified, experienced and very knowledgeable service engineers to conduct analysis, combustion tuning and flue gas sampling. Being able to measure gas concentrations at the point of combustion allows our engineers to precisely tune a boiler. This tuning will leave the boiler efficient by tuning combustion fuel to air, burner optimization, reducing fuel costs and limestone injection optimization. The tuning will of course leave the boiler environmentally compliant, meeting IBMACT and Utility MATS boiler requirements.
