Steam solutions for boiler operations

Boiler operation optimized and lifespan extended

Precise measuring and monitoring optimize boiler performance and protection for efficient operations

Boiler operation optimization is a key focus for utilities managers seeking production efficiencies. Steam remains a vital power source for industrial process heating, yet energy costs are spiraling. Competitive pressures make downtime and maintenance ever more costly, and so protecting boiler equipment and control systems is essential. With accurate and reliable measurement and monitoring fuel consumption can be optimized and boiler lifespan prolonged, unlocking considerable cost savings.

How we can help

Endress+Hauser combines a broad instrumentation, service, and solutions portfolio with a profound understanding of energy and utility management to enable utilities managers to optimize boiler performance while protecting the fundamental integrity of equipment. Whether in ensuring the essential quality and supply of feedwater, evaluating flue gas, or determining the accuracy of measurement results we enable efficiencies to be gained and maintenance costs optimized.

  • Rely on class-leading measurement technology, quality, and reliability

  • Improve boiler house and plant efficiency whilst protecting safety

  • Optimize maintenance with direct access to in-house expertise

  • Comply with environmental protection and energy management standards


Feedwater preparation

A consistent supply of high-quality feedwater is not only vital to optimal boiler efficiency, it protects the boiler’s functional safety and longevity, avoiding equipment failures, costly blowdowns, and corrosion, ensuring consistent steam availability.

Feedwater preparation
Our expertise in the field

Endress+Hauser metering and monitoring solutions deliver the essential information and insights to maximize feedwater quality and minimize boiler operating costs. Our Steam/Water Analysis System help you continuously check the quality of your feedwater.

  • Measure feedwater flow with multivariable Proline Prowirl F 200 providing mass and energy output

  • Monitor feedwater temperature downstream of the economizer with iTHERM TM131

  • Extend boiler lifespan and drive steam production efficiency

Fuel combustion & exhaust

Efficient fuel combustion and compliant emissions are key objectives in boiler operation. If a boiler is burning fuel sub-optimally not only can cost losses be incurred, but emissions standards violated. Accurate measurement of fuel combustion and exhaust parameters is an essential but complex undertaking.
