Both Primary air and Secondary air have an important role to play in fuel combustion and must be provided in different ratios according to the fuel quantity. For combustion of any fuel to take place, 3 basic ingredients are needed – Fuel, Air (Oxygen to specific) and heat. Air provided for combustion reacts with the fuel according to its stoichiometric ratio. But In real some percentage of air which has…

Steam Accumulator is a shell type pressure vessel which is used to store steam generated by a boiler and use it for varying load demands. Steam Boilers are generally designed for a certain capacity at which they could supply steam continuously which is also its maximum continuous rating. So, the steam boiler designed for higher steam requirements can be made to run on lower loads or lower steam demands but…

Boiler water treatment chemicals is employed for generating steam. The first perform of a boiler is to transfer heat from hot gases generated by the combustion of fuel into the water till it becomes hot or turns to steam. Boiler feed water typically contains impurities, that impairs boiler operation and potency. As a lot of steam is gaseous, the water becomes a lot of concentrated with salts and different impurities.…

A steam boiler is a device used to create steam by applying heat energy to water. Although the definitions are somewhat flexible, it can be said that older steam generators were commonly termed steam boiler and worked at low to medium pressure (1–300 psi or 6.895–2,068.427 kPa) but, at pressures above this, it is more usual to speak of a steam generator.

Steam accumulators is a pressure tank that is coated with steel for the purposes of holding steam under high pressure. Purpose of the steam accumulators is to release steam at the time when the demand for the steam is greater that the ability of the boiler to supply the amount required and when the demand is low, it helps to accept the steam back, To meet fluctuating & sudden steam…

A boiler designed to generate 5000 kg/hr steam for & at,100 degree celcius at mean sea level will not give the same quantity of steam if shifted to an elevated place. It will give less steam. Due to decreased air density at higher altitude it will consume same volume of air but will not consume same mass of air. This results in less fuel consumption & less steam generation rate.…

Corrosion is a phenomenon in which atmospheric oxygen in the air or water reacts with the metal to form oxides. Corrosion in industrial boilers is a phenomenon in which the oxygen that is dissolved in the water inside the boiler reacts with the metal of the boilers. Ferrous component of the metal reacts with the atmospheric oxygen in the water to undergo oxidation. This oxidation results in the formation of…

The current society across the globe has embraced environmental-friendly ways to generate hot air hence the need to use flue gas. One of the most efficient and environment-friendly way to generate indirect heat is from flue gases .i.e. THERMAIR-Hot Air Generator. The process of operation occurs when cold air is inserted in a hot air generator, and it absorbs heat from the flue gas passage and when cold air and…

  What is a steam trap? They are valves that were created to discharge condensation, and vent air without losing steam. Just like any mechanical item that uses various mechanisms, over time you are going to have increased wear and tear. When this happens you run into a common, yet real problem when your steam trap begins to leak. When steam traps begin to leak  wasting energy, affecting production immensely,…
