Steam Boilers

Definition of Boiler
        Steam boiler or simply a boiler is essentially a closed vessel into that water is heated till the water is regenerate into steam at needed pressure. this can be most elementary definition of boiler.
Working Principle of Boiler
        The basic rule of boiler terribly, is extremely very easy and simple to grasp. The boiler is actually a closed vessel inside that water is keep. Fuel (generally coal) is bunt in a furnace and hot gasses are created. These hot gasses are available in contact with water vessel where the heat of those hot gases transfer to the water and consequently steam is created in the boiler. Then this steam is piped to the rotary engine of thermal powerhouse. There are many various varieties of boiler used for various functions like running a production unit, sanitizing some space, sterilizing instrumentation, to heat up the environment etc.
Steam Boiler efficiency
       The % of total heat exported by outlet steam in the heat content provided by the fuel (coal, oil, gas etc.) is named steam boiler efficiency.


It includes with thermal efficiency, combustion potency & fuel to steam efficiency. boiler potency depends upon the scale of boiler used. A typical potency of boiler is 80th%  to 88th% really there are some losses occur like incomplete combustion, diverging loss occurs from boiler encompassing wall, defective combustion gas etc. Hence, potency of boiler provides this result.
Types of Boiler
    There are in the main 2 types of boiler – water tube boiler and fire tube boiler.
Fire Tube Boiler: there are the numbers of tubes through that hot gases are passed and water surrounds these tubes.

Water tube boiler is reverse of the fire tube boiler. In the water tube boiler, the water is heated within tubes and hot gasses surround these tubes.

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER:
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 Combi Boiler?

combi boiler or combination boiler is the most commonly used boiler in India. Combi Boiler is a unique membrane design water wall type boiler which combines the advantages of both water tube & smoke tube steam boilers. A combination type of steam boiler is the one which has the operational characteristics of both smoke tube and water tube steam boiler respectively. Unlike the packaged type Boilers, here the furnace is external to the boiler shell. During its operation, the combustion takes place in the water wall so the flue gases from here travel through this membrane (as in a Water Tube Boiler) and enter the Boiler shell. Now the flue gases travel in the smoke tubes (as in a Smoke Tube Boiler)
During its course of motion, it transfers heat to the – Water present in the tubes in the Water Wall MembraneWater present in the Boiler shell through tubesThis type of steam boiler offers the high degree of reliability and trouble-free operation. They effectively operate at moderately hig…
