industrial boilers
Industrial Boilers
  • Steam generators
  • Closed vessels
  • made of steel and
  • used for generation of steam
  • vaporizing water
  • combustion of fuels
  • eg. coal,coke,oil,wood,saw dust and begesse etc.
  • Steam used for producing power,for industrial process work or for heating proposes.
requirements of a perfect steam boilers
Requirements of a Perfect Steam Boilers
  • Should be absolutely reliable,capable of producing maximum steam at required pressure for minimum of fuel consumption,with minimum attention and minimum initial cost and operating cost.
  • Simple constructions
  • Quick starting from cold
  • Strong enough against temp. stress & strains
  • Well design combustion chamber
  • Less floor area, space & light weight
  • Best gauges,safety valves and other mountings
  • Easily accessible for inspection,cleaning and repairs
classification of steam boilers
Classification of Steam Boilers
  • Vertical or Horizontal
  • Stationary(Power plant,industrial,central heating and combined power and heating boilers.),Portable,Locomotive or Marine
  • Internally Fired or Externally Fired (Lancashire and Locomotive Boilers)
  • Solid,Liquid or Gas Fired
  • Fire(Smoke)Tube:Water is outside the tubes while the hot gases are inside the tubes eg.Vertical,Cochran,Lancashire,Cornish,Locomotives,etc) or Water Tube: Contain a large number of small tubes through which water circulates,the fire and hot gases being outside of the and Wilcox, Stirling and High pressure Boilers etc.)
vertical boilers
Vertical Boilers
  • Used in small factories,small water supply plants,cranes,excavators,winch engines in mines and on sites of temporary nature such as construction work etc.
  • Required minimum floor space,not required elaborate foundations,and is portable.
  • Cheap,easy to start but inefficient due to large wastage of fuel and less heating surface.
  • Vertical Boilers are:Simple(having one to three cross tubes), fire tubes and water tubes types.
simple cross tube vertical boiler
Simple Cross tube vertical boiler
  • consists of a cylindrical shell surrounding a cylindrical fire box.
  • heating surface is about 8-10 times the grate area.
  • 50% efficiency
cochran boiler
Cochran Boiler
  • It is well design of a Vertical multitubular fire tube boiler
  • Improvement over the simple vertical boiler as it provides greater heating surface.
  • Total heating surface area is about 10-25 times the grate area
  • Efficiency 70-75%
  • Ranges from 1m dia.X2m high,evaporation 20kg/hr to 3m dia X6m high,evaporation 3000kg/hr.
lancashire boiler
Lancashire Boiler
  • Is horizontal smoke tube boiler size range from a shell 2m diaX6m long to 3m diaX10m long
  • Working pressure range are up to 20kgf/cm2
  • Ratio of heating surface to grate area is 24-30
  • Efficiency is about 56% without economizer and 75% with economizer.
  • Similar to Cornish boiler,in Lancashire Boiler two flue tubes but in Cornish boiler only one flue tubes are there.
locomotive boiler
Locomotive Boiler
  • Is an internally fired multitubular fire tube boiler
babcock and wilcox water tube boiler
Babcock and Wilcox water tube Boiler
  • Water tube boiler having lager pressure ranges and larger sizes.
  • Three main parts, steam and water drum,water tubes and furnace.
stirling boiler
Stirling Boiler
  • Example of water tube boiler where bent tube are used instead of straight tube which are used in Babcock and Wilcox boiler
high pressure boilers
High Pressure Boilers
  • Two types- Natural circulation & Forced circulation Boilers
high pressure boilers contd
High Pressure Boilers contd………
  • La-Mont Boiler( Forced circulation Boiler)
once through forced circulation boiler
Once-Through Forced Circulation Boiler
  • Does not required a steam and water drum,saving in weight
  • Supercritical Pressure Boiler
  • Two types- Benson and Ramzin
loeffler boiler
Loeffler Boiler
  • Indirect heating is combined with forced circulation
velox boiler
Velox boiler
  • Fire tube forced circulation Boiler
fire tubes vs water tubes boilers
Fire tubes Vs water tubes Boilers
  • Fire tubes boilers has a large volume of water,therefore more flexible and can meet the sudden demand of steam without much drop of pressure.
  • Fire tubes boiler is rigid and of simple mechanical construction,so greater reliability and low in first cost.
  • Fire tube boilers can be made in smallest sizes therefore simple to fabricate and transport, occupies less floor space but more height.
  • Due to mostly externally fired water tubes boiler so furnace can be altered considerably to meet the fuel requirements.
  • Water tubes boilers are more readily accessible for cleaning,inspection and repairs,compared to the fire tube boilers.
  • Modern trend is in the favors of water tube boiler due to continuous increase in capacities and steam pressures.
boiler mountings and accessories
Boiler Mountings and Accessories
  • Fitting and devices which are necessary for the safety and control are knows as boiler mountings
  • Fitting or devices which are provided to increase the efficiency of the boiler and help in the smooth working of the plant are knows as boiler accessories.
  • Fittings which are essential from the safety point of view are as follows,
  • Water level indicators
  • Safety valves
  • Combined high steam and low water safety valve
  • Fusible plug

Boiler Mountings and Accessories contd….
  • Fittings which are essential from the control point of view are as follows,
  • Pressure gauge
  • Junction or stop valve
  • Feed check valve
  • Blow-off cock
  • Man hole and Mud Box
  • The important accessories are
  • Superheater
  • Economiser
  • Air-preheater
  • Feed pump or injector
