Technical Specifications

A steam generator or a boiler is defined as a closed vessel in which water is converted into steam by burning of fuel in presence of air at desired temperature, pressure and at desired mass flow rate.
According to American society of Mechanical Engineers (A.S.M.E.), a steam generator or a boiler is defined as “a combination of apparatus for producing, finishing or recovering heat together with the apparatus for transferring the heat so made available to the fluid being heated and vaporized.
Boiler or a steam generator is example of heat exchanger. (Heat exchangers are defined as a mechanical device for exchanging heat between hot fluid and cold fluid with maximum rate, with minimum investment and with minimum running cost).
Principle: In case of boiler, any type of fuel burn in presence of air and form flue gases which are at very high temperature (hot fluid). The feed water at atmospheric pressure and temperature enters the system from other side (cold fluid). Because of exchange of heat between hot and cold fluid, the cold fluid (water) temperature raises and it forms steam. The flue gases (hot fluid) temperature decreases and at lower temperature hot fluid is thrown into the atmosphere via stack/chimney.
The function of boiler is to facilitate the generation of steam by providing the necessary heat transfer surfaces, space for storage of water and steam, furnace for burning the fuel and necessary equipments for control of safe operation The large variety of available boilers have cylindrical drum or shell and tubes except for the once through boilers in which drum is not used.
