  31. 31. 1). SIMPLE VERTICAL BOILER • It consist of a cylindrical shell, the greater portion of which is full of water & remaining is the steam space. • At the bottom of the fire box is grate on which fuel is burnt and the ash from it falls in the ash pit. • A simple vertical boiler is self- contained & can be easily transported.
  32. 32. 2). COCHRAN BOILER • It is one of the best types of vertical multi-tubular boiler, and has a number of horizontal fir tubes. • Cochran boiler consist of a cylindrical shell with a dome shaped top where the space is provided for steam.
  33. 33. 3). CORNISH BOILER  It consists of a cylindrical shell with flat ends through which passes a smaller flue tube containing the furnace. • The products of combustion pass from the fire grate forward over the brickwork bridge to the end of the furnace tube.
  34. 34. 4). LANCASHIRE BOILER • This boiler is reliable, has simplicity of design, ease of operation & less operating & maintenance costs. • It is commonly used in sugar- mills & textile industries where along with the power system & steam for the process work is also needed.
  36. 36. About Locomotive boilers : • Locomotive boiler is a horizontal fire tube type mobile boiler. The main requirement of this boiler is that it should produce steam at a very high rate. Therefore, this boiler requires a large amount of heating surface and large grate area to burn coal at a rapid rate. In order to provide the large heating surface area, a large number of fire tubes are setup and heat transfer rate is increased by creating strong draught by means of steam jet. • ADVANTAGE : a. Large rate of steam generation per square metre of heating surface. To some extent this is due to the vibration caused by the motion. b. It is very compact. c. The pressure of the steam is limited to about 20 bar.
