With the rising cost of energy, many process engineers are focusing on opportunities to conserve energy within the energy-intensive utility operations – the boiler and steam circuit. Most engineers are familiar with the opportunities to save energy on the fireside of boiler systems: optimize excess airflow, maximize cleanliness of heat transfer surfaces and optimize the burner efficiency. However, there are several opportunities to reduce energy consumption on the water side of the boiler systems. Checklist to conserve energy. Some operational changes can reduce energy consumption that include:        þ Audit and repair ste
