Experience gained in the course of boiler-room conversion to gas operation

Abstract...

The Sokol organization building in Prague-Dejvice (Na Hanspaulce) had been heated locally by coke burning boiler room. In this area built-up predominantiy by dwelling buildings this boiler room was the last greater source of environment pollution. After the restitution the Sokol organization unit gathered means for replacing the existing warm water coke burning boiler by gas burning boilers. The paper indicates some knowledge gained by evaluation of the test operation in the course of the first heating period 1999/2000. The operation economy and emissions level of the gas burning boiler room are compared. to those of the original coke burning boiler room.
