Hi there,

A boiler that has been running for a long time is sure to
have soot deposits on its tubes and furnace.

This is especially prominent in boilers using heavy fuel oil
for burning. Although the fuel will be heated and filtered
before combustion, it still contains a lot of impurities. The
by-products of combustion as well as imperfect combustion
cause the soot to form. The soot is deposited on the heating

During the combustion of the fuel oil in a steam boiler, hot
gases are formed. These hot gases are used to heat up the
water in the boiler to form steam.

With the deposits of soot, a lot of the heat energy is not
able to be transferred to the water, but instead is lost
through the chimneystack. The soot layer acts as a heat
insulator for the tubes and shells of the furnace. The heat
is unable to reach the water.

This not only causes the boiler efficiency to be lowered,
but a more serious problem can also occur. The soot can
catch fire!

A soot fire can be detrimental to the strength of the boiler
because it can cause serious localized hotspots to occur at
the tubes. These localized hotspots can even reach temperatures
that weaken the materials of the tubes.

Soot blowers are installed to blow away these soot deposits.
Steam is normally used as a medium for blowing away the soot.

The operation of the soot blowers goes like this:

1. Steam is channeled to the soot blower pipeline.
2. The operator of the soot blower will open a drain valve
to drain off any water in the steam. This is to make sure
that the steam going through the soot blower is dry.
3. Once the steam is considered dry, the drain valve is shut
off, and the soot blower is turned. Most soot blowers are
constructed in such a way that when it is rotated, a steam
port is uncovered and steam can enter into it.
4. The steam shoots out from the soot blower tube that is
inside the boiler fireside. Many small holes for the steam to
emerge are drilled along the length of the tube. As the tube
rotates, the position of the steam jet will also move with it.
After a full rotation, all the areas around the soot blower
tube should be clear of soot. (However, it depends on how
thick the soot is, the speed at which the soot blower is
rotated, and how efficient the soot blowing is)
5. After completing the soot blowing, the steam supply is shut
off again.

The operation of the soot blower can be done manually or by
remotely controlled motor drive. A motor driven soot blower
will usually include some means of turning manually in case
the motor fails.

The soot that is blown away from the heat transfer surfaces of
the boiler will be carried together with the hot gases out
through the chimneystack.

If there is a dust collector, the soot will be caught
by it, otherwise it goes out to the environment as particles
of carbon and ash.

Folks, hold your breath!

Until next time…

Discover Your Niche And Dominate It!
By Dennis Cheesman

Your niche? What a word huh, but it's the one thing that can
make you more money than you can imagine!

Let me explain, a niche is something you create or improve
that solves a problem or helps make things easier on people,
which is directed to a specific audience.

Ways of finding your niche is looking at yourself and
others, what do you need help in or something you would like
made easier?

Once you figure it out start doing research on that specific
topic, or what ever it is you discovered. One way is to find
what other people are doing and improve it, make it better,
faster, easier or what ever but don't copy it!

There are all types of niches you could find, take for
instance, I know a man that discovered a niche about Meeting
And Attracting Women,
and wrote a guide called "The Complete Beginners Guide To
Meeting And Attracting Women", and started a members site
which to my understanding is doing quite well!

This person found some secret that he improved on and made
it available to all men looking to better their pick up
skills! And now he is making money off the one thing we have
all done at one time or another (whether we were good at it
or not;)) he found his niche and dominated it!

Another is a site about how to eliminate bad breath! "Called
The Bad Breath Report", he came up with a unique report that
reveals surefire remedies for annihilating bad breath using
household ingredients you already have!

He has a targeted audience, this is his niche, and he
created a way to help people solve the problem of bad breath
and is doing quite well with his idea…

You must meet their unique needs. The benefits you promise
must have special appeal to the niche. What can you provide
that's new and compelling? Identify the unique needs of your
potential audience, and look for ways to tailor your product
or service to meet them.

Who knows you may be sitting on a lucrative untapped niche
market, right under your nose...without even knowing it.
The secret is first knowing if the niche you are interested
in is viable. Knowing if you can make money in it, and how,
this is what you must discover.

Then you must know the internet marketing strategies that
work for your niche, naturally, when you start a new
endeavor, you want to make sure you're on the right track…
that you're going in the right direction, you want to make
sure your, not putting all your time and effort into
something that doesn't give you a strong return for the time
and effort that you put into it!

When you find the one thing you are good at or can improve,
don't stop there keep trying to better it and improve on it
to stay ahead of your competition!

If you do that, you will have dominated your niche!
