Palm kernel shell boilers are now mostly used in power plants, cement factories, printing plants, food plants, electroplating plants, palm oil industry and some other industries in Malaysia, Thailand, Holland, Italy, UK.
Palm kernel shell as fuel for boilers
Palm kernel shell is the byproduct of the palm oil refinery, it has been neglected for long time until a Malaysia cement factory used it as burning fuel to produce heat by burning it together with coal. Nowadays, many European factories, including the factories in UK, Holland, Italy, begin to try to provide energy by burning the PKS together with coal in the industrial biomass boilers to ease the rising cost of fuel and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.
Palm kernel shell boiler for palm oil industry
For a palm oil industry, the boiler is the necessary equipment. Palm kernel shell as the by-product in the palm oil processing, can be used as the fuel for boiler. The palm kernel shell boilers manufactured by ZG Boiler can help factory save fuels as well as cost. Meanwhile, the palm kernel shell (PKS) has more favorable characters than biomass pellet for boilers. With a calorific value of 4200~4600 Kcal/kg, the palm kernel shell biomass boiler is high efficiency, and it is used as an alternative to coal fired boilers by palm oil industry.
