Several technical and project execution challenges need to be considered when planning to convert a tangential fired furnace from coal to natural gas. This presentation will discuss the different approaches to project execution, technical design and key lessons learned from each conversion.

Combustion air system modifications, fuel system design, boiler modeling and emissions reductions will be examined.  This includes factors affecting equipment and retrofit cost, operation, maintenance, emissions and performance goals influenced the designs of each conversion.
