BOILER
BY:
Sujan kharel
 BOILER
 Boiler is an apparatus to produce steam.
 Thermal energy released by combustion of fuel issued
to make steam at the desired temperature and pressure.
The steam produced is used for:
1). For generating power in steam engines or steam
turbines.
2). Heating the residential and industrial buildings.
3). Performing certain processes in the sugar mills,
chemical and textile industries.
Selection of boiler:
The working pressure & quality of steam.
Steam generation.
Floor area available.
Accessibility for repair & inspection.
Comparative initial cost.
The fuel & water available.
Operating & maintenance cost.
 BOILER PROPERTIES
a). Safety: The boiler should be safe under the operating
conditions.
b). Accessibility: the various part of boiler should be accessible for
repair & maintenance.
c). Capacity: Should be capable of supplying Steam according to
the requirements.
d). Efficiency: Should be able to absorb a maximum amount of
heat produced due to burning of fuel in the furnace.
e). It should be simple in construction.
f). Its initial cost and maintenance cost is low.
g). It should be capable of quick starting and loading.
 CLASSIFICATION OF BOILERS
The boiler may be classified as :
1. Horizontal, vertical or inclined
2. Fire tube & water tube
3. Externally fired & internally fired
4. Forced circulation & internally fired
5. High pressure & low pressure
6. Forced circulation & natural circulation
7. Stationary & portable
8. Single tube & multi tube boilers
1. Horizontal , vertical or inclined
If the axis of boiler is horizontal, the boiler is
called horizontal.
If the axis is vertical then it is called vertical.
If the axis is inclined then it is called inclined.
Advantage of horizontal boiler:
a. it should be repaired easily.
b. occupies less floor area.
2. Fire tube & water tube boiler
In the fire tube boiler the hot gases are inside the
tubes & the water surrounds in the tube.
ex. Cochran, locomotive etc.
In the water tube boiler the water is inside the
tube & the hot gases are surround them.
ex. Stirling
3. Externally & internally fired
The boiler is known as externally fired if the fire is
outside the shell.
ex. Babcock & wilcox
In case of internally fired boilers, the furnace is located
inside the boiler shell.
ex: cochran, lancashire etc.
4. Forced circulation & natural circulation
In forced circulation type of boilers the circulation of
water is done by forced pumps.
ex. Velox,lamont .
In natural circulation type of boiler the circulation of
water in boiler takes place due to natural convention.
ex. Lancashire, babcock.
5. High pressure & low pressure boilers
The boilers which produce steam at pressure of
80 bar and above are called high pressure boiler.
ex. Velox
The boiler which produce steam at pressure
below 80 bar are called low pressure boiler.
ex. cochran
7. Single tube multi-tube boilers
The fire tube boilers are classified as single tube
& multi tube boilers, depending upon the fire
tube is one more than one.
Ex: cornish boiler
Boiler mainly classified as:
a. fire tube
b. water tube
a). FIRE TUBE BOILERS
b). WATER TUBE BOILERS
Comparison between Fire-tube & water-tube boilers
S no. Particulars Fire tube boilers Water tube boilers
1. Mode of firing Internally fired Externally fired
2. Rate of steam production lower Higher
3. construction Difficult Simple
4. transportation Difficult Simple
5. Treatment of water Not so necessary More necessary
6. Operating pressure Limited to 16 bar Under high pressure as 100 bar
7. Floor area More floor area Less floor area
8. Shell diameter Large for same power Small same power
9. explosion Less More
10. Risk of bursting lesser More risk
 TYPES OF FIRE TUBE BOILERS
• There are mainly five types of fire tube
boilers :
1). Simple vertical boiler
2). Cochran boiler
3.) Cornish boiler
4). Lancashire boiler
5). Locomotive boilers
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.
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.
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.
5). LOCOMOTIVE BOILERS
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 meter 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.
 WATER TUBE BOILERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS :
1). Horizontal Straight tube boiler
There are two types of Horizontal straight tube boiler:
a. Longitudinal drum
b. Cross drum
there are three types of cross drum boiler :
1. two drum
2. four drum
3. three drum
2). Bent tube boiler
There are one type of bent tube boiler :
a. Low head three drum
