Observation Remarks
MB advised to replace the bed tubes from Enmas agreed to do the same at a later date,
plain bore to rifle bore tubes. if so necessitated.

Boiler performance: Since the Superheater steam temperature

load (60% BMCR) while firing imported coal.

Coal Nozzle. MBs coal nozzle design is of T type. In

Indian industry, umbrella type coal nozzles
are widely used and same is adopted by
Enmas, which is acceptable to MB.

Air nozzle design MBs checks in the air nozzle design indicates
the possibility of back flow of bed material at
very low loads. MB advises using high
excess air at very low loads to avoid such
back flow.

Gas mass velocity through the Air heater Gas mass velocity is higher than MBs
tubes. recommendations which may lead to
relatively higher erosion rates.

Bed drains location Arrangement of bed drains are not

symmetrical from the central line of the boiler,
. 8 nos. are provided on one side and 4 Nos.
on the other side, to accommodate bed ash
coolers. Should 4 Nos. drains on one side be
found inadequate, Enmas shall make relevant

Superheater metal temperature calculations The primary Superheater outlet legs have
been modified from SA 213 T11 to SA 213
T22 as per our advise.
