Measurements of the boiler of a frozen chicken production company were conducted to benchmark its performance against the international norms. The boiler efficiency was found to be less than the benchmark value.
The company was recommended to mitigate the causes of the low efficiency through setting Standard Operating Parameters for the boiler operation, as well as adopting a specific maintenance program. This action increased the boiler efficiency, and saved on fuel usage.
