Gas fired boiler employs gas like natural gas or LPG for firing. Wood has low combustion efficiency and low calorific value as compared to natural gas. Natural gas has high combustion efficiency and high calorific value so that it gives more heat to water by firing less gas.
Cost of natural gas is higher than wood. Its price is around 60 rupees per liter.
Cost for establishment of natural gas pipe line is 5,00,000 rupees, in that area where SWAMI TEXTILE is situated.
• Gas fired boiler price is around 10,00,000 rupees.
• Life of boiler is 5 to 6 years.
• Maintenance cost for this boiler is around 15000 rupees/year
• Cost of fuel is 55 Rs/liter and it is much higher than that of wood.
So the overall cost for the gas fired boiler is much high. Also it is useful for any industry to invest 10,00,000 Rs just for gas pipe line so gas fired boiler is not suitable for given conditions.
