What does derating gas boilers for high altitude do to the DOE rating? if the input rating is 100 MBH and the DOE heating capacity is 80 MBH (80% efficient) and the boiler is installed at an elevation of 9000 ft then the derating process should adjust the input to 64 MBH, i.e. 9000 ft = 100 – (100 * (9 * .04)) = 64. You need to derate

A Reminder on How to Derate Your Boiler - ALL4

It is important for facilities to recognize that the boiler derating “process” described in this most recent U.S. EPA determination is not one size fits all. U.S. EPA has a long history of boiler derate determinations and in this specific example, it reemphasizes that it is a case-by-case determination process. For example, if you enter

derating for altitude — Heating Help: The Wall

For atmospheric appliances, the normal derate factor is 4% per 1,000 feet. Another way to determine boiler sizing would be to take your base load and divide it by the combined combustion efficiency and altitudinal derate factor. In your case, that combined factor would be .48.

Gas Furnaces:High-Altitude Adjustment and Changing …

High-Altitude Adjustment For elevations above 2000 ft, the Btu input should be reduced (derated) 4 percent for each 1000 ft above sea level. This adjustment is required because of the increase in air volume at higher elevations. Air expands at approximately 4 percent per 1000 ft of elevation. At elevations above 2000 ft, the volume…

Question about derating gas furnace for altitude.

2005-5-3 · Putting a 10 ton unit in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Altitude 7,000 feet. Lennox LGA120 with high heat. The Lennox specs have a "high altitude derate" table, and they list the gas manifold pressure. 3.6" in w.g. for 2,000-3,000 ft. 3.1" in w.g. for 7000-8000 ft. How do I translate this into decreased output btuh? I've been in Texas for 5 years now (lived in Salt Lake City previously, 4200 feet) and

2017-3-23 · boiler at an altitude above that? Well, in most cases, you have to calculate boiler input based upon a “derate” factor. This is based on a percentage of input lost per 1,000 feet. The industry-standard derate calculation may reduce boiler performance by 4% per 1,000 feet of elevation, however that severe derate does not apply to the K2.
