Steam Boilers

As the needs of people increased, more factories were established. The production of these factories has to be at maximum level. Because a lot of energy and money is spent for each production. That's why steam boilers were produced. With these boilers, the production is now %100.

Many things have changed with the development of mining. Machines took more responsibility and the impossible happened. One of them is the steam boiler. A steam boiler is a device used in everyday life and industry. It is designed to turn water into steam. The resulting steam is then used to heat the vessel or spin the turbo machines.

What are Steam Boilers?

Saturated steam is used for heating private houses, and superheated steam is used in industry and energy. It conducts heat better, so the use of superheated steam increases efficiency. Steam boilers are used for the following purposes;

  • In a heating system, steam is the energy carrier.

  • In the energy sector, industrial steam engines (steam generators) are used to generate electricity.

  • In industry, superheated steam can be used to convert mechanical motion and move vehicles.

Using steam machines saves you money on many things. It allows you to get high efficiency in a short time.

How Do Steam Boilers Work?

Steam boilers vessel in which water evaporates. It is produced in different sizes. These boilers have a combustion section. Different fuels such as natural gas and coal can be used here. The design of the boiler is determined by the type of fuel for which the boiler is designed. If coal is firewood, there is a grate at the bottom of the combustion chamber. There is coal and firewood. It passes from the air grille to the combustion section.

A chimney is arranged at the top of the firebox for effective efficiency. If the energy carrier is in liquid or gaseous form, a burner is supplied to the combustion section. A grill and chimney are also made for the movement of air. The hot gas from the combustion of fuel rises into a container of water. It heats the water and exits through the chimney. Water heated to the boiling point begins to evaporate. Steam rises and enters the tubes.

What are the Types of Steam Boilers?

Steam boilers are divided into two; water tube and fire tube steam boilers.

Any steam boiler has a combustion chamber, in which heat is released from the combustion of fuel. This heat moves along the 2-way or 3-way boiler structure together with the flue gas, transferring the heat to the water in parallel.

Almost all modern industrial steam boilers are of the water tube type. Their design is more complex than obsolete gas tubes, but:

  • The combustion section is wide. Thanks to this, they quickly enter the operating mode;

  • Water tube boilers have low failure;

  • Allows precise adjustment of steam parameters;

  • It has the capacity to withstand heavy loads.

Boilers are classified according to various criteria. According to the type of fuel they run;gas, coal, liquid fuel, electrical. By purpose; house, industry, energy, recycle
