Utility Boilers and Fired Heaters
Baker Hughes combustion performance additives ensure fired heaters and utility boilers use heavy fuel oil (HFO) without the problems of corrosion or slag-and-ash buildup. Our additives and support reduce burner-tip fouling and maintenance cost while improving performance and reliability. Our additives include combustion improvers, corrosion inhibitors, and ash modifiers.
With Baker Hughes BASTION™ fuel treatment services, we combine our combustion performance additives with support to take care of all your HFO needs. Optimize your fired-heater and utility-boiler operations, regardless of fuel-oil quality.
These BASTION services include fuel analysis, fuel additive treatment, dosage optimization, ash analysis, and flue-gas analysis. We’ll also work with you on a combustion performance health check, such as an inspection during shutdowns.
