Internal Furnace Smoke Tube Boilers :Explanation, Types & Products

Internal Furnace Smoke Tube Boilers: Definition Internal Furnace Smoke Tube Boilers: On the basis of Heat Transfer methods between the flue gases and water, most boilers can be divided into two basic parts: Furnace – where the radiation heat transfer dominates and Tubes – where the convection heat transfer is prominent. Thermodyne’s Intech models are Read more about Internal Furnace Smoke Tube Boilers :Explanation, Types & Products[…]

What is Mobrey?

Definition of Mobrey Mobrey is the name used for the Automatic water level controller, it comes under the category of mountings and fittings of Steam Boiler Assembly. As the name suggests, it is used for maintaining the water level in the Boiler shell. It is mostly used in smoke tube steam boilers not in water tube Read more about What is Mobrey?[…]

What is Bag Filter?

What is Bag Filter? A Bag Filter is an air pollution controlling industrial equipment, used prominently in a Steam Boiler House Assembly. It is used to control the levels of sulfur dioxide and others. There are different types of Bag Filters such as Shakers, Reverse Air and Pulse Jet type, with Pulse jet type being Read more about What is Bag Filter?[…]

Why Do Need To Insulate Our Steam Boilers?

In winters, human bodies shiver, so we insulate ourselves by wearing woollen clothes. A steam boiler in operation doesn’t shiver to maintain its internal energy, even if it did, it would have been highly undesirable keeping in mind the impacts of vibration in a system. Ambient temp being extremely low, so the temperature difference between human Read more about Why Do Need To Insulate Our Steam Boilers?[…]

Why do we need a Bag Filter?

As we all know, the air pollution norms are getting stricter with every day passing by. So it becomes quite obvious to install and commission an air pollution control device. One such air pollution control equipment is the Bag Filter. Bag Filter helps in separating the particulate matter from the flue gas coming out of Read more about Why do we need a Bag Filter?[…]

Boiler Aging

Boiler Aging Like humans, even Steam Boiler ages with time. And it is essential for one to be aware of the changes that Boiler goes through with time. The life cycle of Steam Boiler components is governed by the magnitude of stress, variation in operating parameters, chemical regime during its service life and suitability of Read more about Boiler Aging[…]

What is Fluidized Bed Combustion?

Fluidized Bed Combustion (FBC) “Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) is a combustion technology used to burn solid fuels.” A bed of solid particles is said to be fluidized when the pressurized fluid (liquid or gas) is passed through the medium and causes the solid particles to behave like a fluid under certain conditions. Fluidization causes the Read more about What is Fluidized Bed Combustion?[…]

Role of Primary Air and Secondary Air

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 Read more about Role of Primary Air and Secondary Air[…]

Importance of Steam Accumulator in Boilers

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 it is maximum continuous rating. So, the steam boiler designed for Read more about Importance of Steam Accumulator in Boilers[…]

Do You Want To Know What Steam Boiler Is?

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 Read more about Do You Want To Know What Steam Boiler Is?[…]
