Combustion efficiency (CE) calculator - formula & step by step calculation to measure how efficiently the fuel is being burned or utilized in the combustion process. The heat losses of both stack (chimney) & moisture loss would be taken into consideration to find the efficiency of the combustion process. CE = [CO2/(CO2 + CO)] x 100. The dry volume concentration of CO2 in PPMv (Parts per Million for Volume) & the dry volume concentration of CO in PPMv (Parts per Million for Volume) are the key elements of this calculation. The higher or lower temperature in stack & gas indicates that the lower & higher efficiency of the process respectively.
