Electra : Electrode Type Boilers

Electra : Electrode Type Boilers
Operating Principle:-
        Electra - Electrode Type Boiler differs in principle from the other technique of heating water or manufacturing steam as the water within the shell is used as an electrical resistance through that the current is passed. This causes an increase in the temperature of the water.

       Electra - electrode type steam boilers are manufactured as a packaged  unit mounted an a chassis, installation contains the fitting of the pipe, cold feed, blow down, drain, escape valve, air vent pipe and the connection of the electrical offer.
The current supply consists of specially designed electrodes in the sort of scrolls in order to maximise the electrodes space. Automatic controls for top steam pressure and high & low water level within the boiler shell are provided through a completely pre-wired board thereby creating the operation extremely easy and simple.


  1. Compact size.
  2. Safe, easy-to-use heat supply - no on-site product of combustion.
  3. Easy and fast to install, they need only water connection and electrical hook-up.
  4. Steam is available at the flip of a switch.
  5. Designed as per IBR 1950, punctually approved from the IBR inspectorate.

Capacity Range:-
        Electra Boiler is obtainable in steam capacities from fifty Kg/hr to 1320 Kg/hr

1.Increased thermal efficiency
2. Short payback period & increased combustion rate
3. In the case of combustion of pulverized coal hot air can be used for drying the coal as well as for burning the coal efficiently
4. All standard fuels and even lower grades of coals can be burnt efficiently with hot air

Thermodyne Boilers is a successful manufacturing the Boiler accessories like Air Preheaters, Economizers, Superheaters etc.

What is Wet Scrubber?

Wet Scrubbers are the pollution control equipment that helps in controlling the pollution by reducing the concentration of pollutants such as Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and ash content in exhaust flue gases.
As the pollution norms are getting stringent and the government is making sure that pollution laws are being implemented, many industries are coming up with various solutions and strategies for reducing the pollution and its management. One such solution is using pollution control equipment such as Wet Scrubbers.

Industries or power plants generally have boilers or furnaces installed in their processes where combustion of fuel is taking place. Combustion of fuel generates flue gases that contain a large amount of heat which is transferred to water to convert into steam. These fuels generally contain carbon, sulfur, hydrogen, oxygen and on combustion with air, they form flue gases containing Sulfur dioxide (SO2), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Ash, Water vapor (H2O). Out of these SO2 and Ash …

Why Do We Need A Fusible Plug?

Fusible Plug is a fitting used in Steam Boilers to enhance the safety during operation. It’s working depends upon the water level in the Boiler shell. A fusible Plug is a threaded metallic cylindrical object, with a tapered hole in it which goes through its entire length. It is usually of brass, bronze or even gunmetal. In a smoke tube steam boiler, it is fitted on the front tube sheet, just above the tubes (used for flue gas flow) arrangement but below the perforated feed line inside the shell.

But the question is how exactly this little thing helps in preventing a huge disaster. It’s working is dependent only on the temperatures not on pressures. What happens is that during steam boiler operation, the feed pumps to supply water for steam conversion in the Boiler shell on the basis of the signal sent to it by the electrical panel. And electrical panel receives this signal from the mobrey (automatic water level controller) based on the fluctuating water levels due to continuous steam g…
