DRY RUNNING INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPOSITE MARINE BOILER CMB-VS

It becomes inevitable to run the boiler dry if any damage on the pressure part oc-
curred and the vessel is underway at sea, the schedule does not allow a longer
shut-down of the main engine in order to make temporary repairs to the damaged
boiler or the damage is of an extent which is not manageable by temporary repair
methods available.

Dry running of the boiler is generally possible with main engine exhaust gas tem-
perature up to 385 C. Cleaning of heating surface has to be performed as usual
also during dry running period.

To prepare the boiler for dry running, please proceed as follows:

1.) Dismount all temperature sensitive devices, such as boiler level controls and
limiting devices.

2.) Seal control device necks on boiler body with appropriate gaskets and blind
flanges.

3.) Close all valves on the boiler body and secure against unauthorized opening.

4.) Switch on the combustion air fan and keep it running for the whole dry running
period in order to provide sufficient cooling air to the burner assembly.

Take care!

Keeping the combustion air fan off might result in overheating and
subsequent damage to the burner equipment due to heat transfer
through the boiler body steel structure!

During dry running period, the heat transfer surface has to be maintained as fol-
lows:

1.) Start the soot remover dosing device before or immediately after starting the
main engine to reduce danger of soot fire and to ensure that no soot deposits
inside of the smoke tubes will burn in and lead to reduction of heat transfer in
the smoke tubes.

Take care!

If the smoke tubes are not cleaned immediately each time after
engine start up the higher exhaust gas temperature might lead to
permanent molten ash deposits or even cause a soot fire!

2.) Clean the smoke tubes with soot remover daily during dry running period.


The boiler has to undergo permanent repairs as soon as possible in coordination
with the classification society involved.

For repair or exchange of smoke tubes on CMB-VS boiler please refer to repair in-
struction.

When taking the boiler into operation again after permanent repair, proceed as
follows:

1.) Open control device necks on boiler body by removing the blind flanges.

2.) Remount all temperature sensitive devices which have been taken off prior to
dry-running period, such as boiler level controls and level limiting devices.

3.) Put all valves on the boiler body back into position for normal operation.

4.) Check all safety and control functions of the automatic control system.

5.) Heat up the boiler slowly to normal operating temperature, applying heat with
burner or reduced main engine load.
