Further, it is necessary to ensure the exhaust gas temperature out of the heat exchanger higher than 200[degrees]C in order to avoid the dew point corrosive phenomenon.
Many LTHW boilers are limited to a turndown of just 2:1 or 3:1 to ensure that the boiler exhaust gas temperatures are maintained above the 130-140[degrees]C required to avoid condensation.
The exhaust gas temperature and flow rate with increasing the engine load is increased.
Another problem can occur when an engine is shut down quickly after being operated at high speed and load where the exhaust gas temperature is maximized.
