Based on long-term of experience, independent industrial tests, and aerodynamic heat calculations for each type of boiler units and RAH, comprehensive analysis of the key indicators of the boiler units before and after installation of the CMKA® heat-exchange elements, we can confidently say about the advantages of our product. First of all, it is important to note the high efficiency of heat-exchange - 1.5 - 2.5 times higher than the typical versions of the heat-exchange elements. In addition, the usage of the CMKA® profile allows increasing the boiler unit efficiency by an average of 2.5%. For example, the value for the Balakovo Power Plant No.4 is 2.42% (increase may be up to 5.5% - for example, Arkhangelsk Power Station).
The increase in efficiency factor leads to reduction in fuel consumption, by an average of 4000-5000 tons of equivalent fuel for the boiler unit per year. Important! For a number of years of using of the CMKA® heat-exchange elements, reduction in fuel consumption will result in savings of more than $ 2.5 billion.
In its turn, reduction in fuel consumption contributes to improving the environmental situation by reducing harmful emissions into the atmosphere. According to experts, the annual reduction of harmful emissions is: NOX – 159 tons, CO2 – 12 tons, CO - 5.5tons.
Service life increased due to preliminary selection of the optimal profile parameters based on individual aerodynamic heat calculations and proper organization of heat and aerodynamic processes in air heater.
Pay-back period for the purchasing and replacement of heat exchange elements is 5-15 months and depends on fuel type of the boiler, size of regenerative air heater, quality of baskets installations into the rotor and other possible factors.
