Reasons for low steam economy

1 WBL solids in inlet are high

2 Always one of the 2nd effect body is under cleaning and the other three are getting overloaded.
3 During sulphate addition in the month of Aug & Sept-16 the WBL quality had been affected and caused hard jamming in 2nd effect, finishers & LHT plant.
4 During Dec-16, everyday one of the 2nd or Finishers bodies were cleaned to overcome the problem
5 Accumulated sludge in WBL tanks is affecting the performance of the evaporator, which required cleaning.
