Construction of 500 MW Steam Boiler

  1. 1. Construction of 500 mw boiler by Vaibhav G. Paydelwar ( Project Engineer) Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Limited
  2. 2. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY BOILER ?  Boiler means any closed vessel exceeding 22.75 Ltr. in capacity used for steam generation under pressure. The first boiler was developed in 1725 and its working pressure was 10 kg/ cm2.  Boiler can be regarded as a number of interconnected heat exchangers arranged in such manner that heat available by burning of fuel is transferred to convert water into steam in most efficient manner.
  3. 3. FUNCTION OF BOILER  To produce the steam at the desired rate at desired pressure and temperature with use of resources such as oil, coal & water for generating the power.
  4. 4. Types of Boilers Natural circulation Boiler :Drum to down comer - to main ring header – to ww tubes and back -to drum. Due to difference in density of water and steam this types of circulation takes place.  Forced circulation (Assisted circulation) Boiler :As per operating pressure of the boiler approaches to the critical pressure, additional pumps are required to install in down comers, because at this pressure there is no appreciable density difference between water and steam to have natural circulation of water.
  5. 5. NEED FOR ASSISTED CIRCULATION 0.7 Density of Water 0.6 0.5 0.4 Critical Point 0.3 0.2 0.1 Density of Steam 0 80 100 120 140 160 180 Pressure (Kg/cm2) 200 220 240
  6. 6. According to working pressure Sub critical pressure boiler : when working pressure of boiler is between 130 to 180 kg/ cm2 critical boiler : when working pressure of boiler is 225.56 kg/ cm2 Super critical boiler : when working pressure of boiler is 240.10 kg/ cm2
  7. 7. Why to go for higher capacity ? 1’-2’ = Work done in turbine from P1 – P2 2’-3 = Heat Rejection in condenser 3-4 = Water pumped to boiler 4-1 = Heat addition in eco and boiler.
  8. 8. SPECIAL FEATURES OF 500MW BOILER Controlled circulation of feed water in water walls with the help of 3 Nos. of boiler circulating water pumps installed on down comers. Rifled bore water wall tubes as against smooth bore tubes in 210 MW boiler.  Provision of Orifices for equal distribution of water in water wall tubes from bottom ring header.  All down comers are connected to front header of the bottom ring header. 
  9. 9. DESIGN FACTOR For the construction of boiler parts subjected to pressure and their integral attachment, the designer takes into account several factors  Relative Cost  Mechanical Properties  Manufacturing Method  Scaling Resistance  Maintenance
  10. 10. Various parts of Boiler BOILER IS DIVIDED INTO TWO PASS: FIRST PASS  SECOND PASS First pass of the boiler consists of:-  Furnace water wall.  Divisional super heater pendent assembly.  Final Super heater pendent assembly.  Reheater front pendent assembly. (CRH)  Reheater rear pendent assembly. (HRH)  Rear Arch Panel.  Water Wall screen tubes.
  11. 11. Second pass of the boiler consists of: Steam cooled wall.  Economizer lower bank coils.  Economizer middle bank coils.  Economizer upper bank coils.  LTSH lower bank coils  LTSH upper bank coils  Eco. Hanger tubes.  LTSH terminal tubes.
  12. 12. ECONOMISER  Requirement why ?  Advantages • • As the economiser recover the heat in the flue gas that leaves the boiler and transfer to working fluid there will be saving in fuel consumption. As the feed water is preheated in the economiser and enter the boiler tube at an elevated temperature( near to saturation temp.) the heat transfer area required for the evaporation surface required will be reduce considerably. As the size of boiler also will be reduced.  Types of Economiser Steaming  Non steaming • Plain tube economiser • Fin-tube economiser 

  14. 14. Fin-tube Eonomiser
  15. 15. Tube size and spacing   The tubes can be made any length and diameter with 38mm to 52mm OD. The side spacing and back spacing can be arranged for good cleaning, absorption of heat and less draught loss. Spacing about 90mm to 140mm. It is composed of three banks of 130 parallel tube elements arranged in horizontal rows in such a manner that each row is in line with the row above and below.
  16. 16. Drum & Drum Internals  Requirement Separation of saturated steam from the steam-water mixture produced by the evaporating tubes  Mixing feed water from economiser and water separated from steam – water mixture, and re-circulate through the evaporating tubes.  Carrying out blow down for reduction of boiler water salt concentration.  Treatment of Boiler water by chemicals  construction of drum 1 11 111

  20. 20. Water Walled Furnace Requirement  Advantages       In furnace not only combustion but also heat transfer is taking place simultaneously. The maintenance work involved in repairing the firebricks (which is otherwise necessary) is completely eliminated. Due to heat transfer in the furnace, temperature of the flue gas leaving the furnace is reduced to the acceptable level of the superheating surfaces. Higher heat loading in the furnace is possible, as heat is being simultaneously removed by heat transfer, and hence economy in surfacing. Providing a Gas tight seal to the combustion chamber to prevent air infiltration.

  24. 24. Superheaters  Requirement? By increasing the temperature of the steam, the useful energy that can be recovered economically increases thus the efficiency of the cycle also as can be seen in Fig.3.40.  Superheating of steam eliminates the condensation of steam during transporting of steam in pipelines and inside the early stages of turbines which is harmful to the turbine blades and pipe lines.  Limits the work done by turbine stages to avoid excessive erosion of blades 
  25. 25. Types of superheater   radiant superheater convective superheater
