Factors which exert the greatest influence on the selection of boilers are fuel characteristics, capacity and steam conditions, space conditions, cost and individual preference.
Prior to a preliminary selection of equipment, complete information should be available concerning fuels on which boiler types and predicted performance are based. Numbers 5 and 6 fuel oil require preheating equipment before the boiler. It is also desirable to determine a secondary fuel supply for emergency use when the primary fuel supply is interrupted or when changes in price make the secondary fuel more economical.
Where possible, equipment selection should be such that secondary fuel performance is equivalent to that of the primary fuel. However, if any interruption in primary fuel supply is only temporary and if the price differential between primary and secondary fuels is fairly stable, it may be more economical to design for maximum efficiency with the primary fuel and to accept some compromise in performance and maintenance costs with the secondary fuel.
Packaged boilers are currently offered for gas firing with oil standby. They operate with equal efficiency on oil or gas.
