Differential pressure measurement: A simple, early warning, condition monitoring tool for detecting the development of faults in boiler dry ash collectors † [Full subscriber]

New South Wales (Australia) has limits for boiler particulate emissions to air of 250mg/Nm3 dry basis corrected to 12% CO2. Harwood Mill and refinery operates its boiler for 51 weeks each year with only a standard dry collector system to achieve compliance. Non-conforming results have been recorded as the boiler collector exhibits signs of wear with age.
