I would like to have a comparison of LPG and Diesel quantities needed to produce 1Mton of Steam from a boiler?
T

he comparison can be in terms of MMBTU values or Cubic Meter references as i have to use the figures to calculate the actual cost comparison based on prevailing market price

To do this, one has to look up the heat content of both fuels and this can be found on the web. Afterwards, you have to assume an efficiency for the boiler. Then, you need to set the pressure for the steam. Finally, determine heat required to produce a ton of steam.
