  • When a pound of CO burns to CO_ {2}, however, only 4350 B.t. u. are evolved since the pound of CO contains but 3/7 pound carbon.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • (3 (CO_ {2} +CO)) where CO_ {2}, O, CO and H are the percentage by volume as determined by the flue gas analysis and C is the percentage by weight of carbon in the dry fuel.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • With the exception of the small amount of carbon in combination with hydrogen as methane, and a very small percentage of free hydrogen, ordinarily less than 0.1 per cent, the calorific value of blast furnace gas is due to the CO content which when united with sufficient oxygen when burned under a boiler, burns further to CO_ {2}.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • CO and CO_ {2} = per cent of CO and CO_ {2} by volume from flue gas analysis.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • As shown, where this supply is unduly small, the loss caused by burning the carbon to CO instead of to CO_ {2} more than offsets the gain in decreasing the weight of gas.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • CO_ {2} + CO where N, CO_ {2} and CO are the percentages by volume of nitrogen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the flue gases, and C the percentage by weight of carbon which is burned from the fuel and passes up the stack as flue gas.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • The quantities actually determined by an analysis are the relative proportions by volume, of carbon dioxide (CO_ {2}), oxygen (O), and carbon monoxide (CO), the determinations being made in this order.

    Steam, Its Generation and Use

  • The specific heat of a gas whose composition by weight is CO_ {2}, 13 per cent; CO, 0.4 per cent; O, 8 per cent; N, 78.6 per cent, is found as follows:
