|Water Tube Type Boilers|
The industrial water tube boiler mostly produces steam or hot water primarily for industrial process applications, and is used less frequently for heating applications.
In the water tube design, tubes contain steam or water and the products of combustion pass around the tubes. Typically, water tube designs consist of multiple drums. A steam drum (upper) and mud drums (lower) are connected by the tubes, which form both the convection section and the furnace area.
Packaged industrial water tube boilers are typically rated in pounds of steam per hour output at operating conditions and range from 10,000 to 134,000 lbs/hr.
Industrial water tube boilers are noted for their fast steaming capability. Steam is generated very rapidly because of the relatively low water content. This allows them to respond quickly to changing load demands.
The industrial water tube boiler design makes it capable of generating either saturated or super heated steam. When applications dictate super heated steam usage, large or fluctuating steam loads, or high pressures (greater than 15 kg), an industrial water tube boiler should be considered.
