Electrode Type Steam Boilers

Electra – Electrode Type Steam Boilers


Operating Principle ELECTRA – Electrode Type Steam Boilers differs in principle from any other method of heating water or producing steam as the water within the shell is used as an electrical resistance through which the current is passed. This causes a rise in the temperature of the water. As the amperage rises, so does the temp. of the water, leading to the generation of steam. The best part of this part is the quick response to the steam requirement at the process end. The only limitation of this design is the charges due to high electrical consumption.

Electra – Electrode Type Steam Boilers Construction

ELECTRA – Electrode Type steam boilers are manufactured as a packaged unit mounted and a chassis, the installation comprises the fitting of the steam pipe, cold feed, blowdown, drain, safety valve, air vent pipe and the connection of the electrical supply.

The current source consists of specially designed electrodes in the form of scrolls in order to maximize the electrodes area. Automatic controls for high steam pressure and high & low water level inside the boiler shell are provided through a fully pre-wired control panel thereby making the operation highly user-friendly and easy. The water fills in the Steam Boiler shell and as soon as the water comes in contact with the electrodes, the current in the system rises and due to short circuiting in this system. An amount of energy (proportional to the magnitude of the current flow) is released, heating up the water surrounding it and generating steam.
