This exhaust fan is mentioned because its location on the roof is very near the combustion air intakes and exhaust flues and, therefore, could be playing some part in disturbing the airflow pattern of the flues; and because exhaust in a boiler room is frowned upon because it complicates combustion air draft to the boiler.
To include the effect of water vapor we extended our database by including numerical laminar burning velocities for a wide range of water fractions in combustion air.
Figure 4 shows the relationship obtained for one combustion air blower.
The post condition showed the excess combustion air is reduced.
The combustion air is diluted with a large amount of recirculated exhaust gasses; the oxygen concentration in the main reaction region is reduced to a lower concentration with respect to the case of undiluted air, allowing for a better control of the reactants kinetic and average temperature.
Moreover, the absence of mechanical linkages between the gas and combustion air control valves and dampers eradicates the risk of the operation 'sticking'.
2] concentration instead of direct measurement of combustion air flow rate, which would require costly measurement.
Another option for stack reusing is the combustion air preheating in an air preheater before entering the boiler (Eastop&Croft, 1995, Kreith&West, 1997).
Nevertheless, some jurisdictions require outdoor combustion air supplies.
