Ec
=
Combustion efficiency (100 percent less flue losses).
 
Et
=
Thermal efficiency. See referenced standard document for detailed information.
 
 
 
 
a
These requirements apply to boilers with rated input of 8,000,000 Btu/h or less that are not packaged boilers and to all packaged boilers. Minimum efficiency requirements for boilers cover all capacities of packaged boilers.
b
Maximum capacity minimum and maximum ratings as provided for and allowed by the unit's controls.
c
Includes oil-fired (residual).
