Boilers are the widely used heating appliance in homes, industrial, commercial, and institutional use. It is a closed vessel which is used to heat and vaporize water to create steam at a higher pressure than atmospheric pressure. Boilers act as a savior during the extreme cold weather. These are widely used for climate control and industrial purposes. There is a large usage of boilers at every place including hospitals, schools, factories and food production. A boiler is a crucial piece of equipment that produces high to low-pressure steam to perform various domestic and industrial functions. There are various types of boilers for different purposes.
As the name says, the water tube boiler is used to fill the water inside the tube and heat it from the outside source. Water-tube boilers are widely used for variable load requirements and high-pressure demands due to its advance ability of rapid heat transfer. These types of boilers are available in large capacities as compared to other types of boilers.
A fire tube boiler is used to transfer heated gas into several tubes that help in heating the room through a water-filled chamber. Thermal induction is performed to create steam that directs the heat through the walls of the tube. Areas having large and constant steam demand mostly have fire tube boilers. However, unlike water-tube boilers, fire-tube boilers are not suitable for the high-pressure application.
There are two types of boilers depending on the size including packaged and field-erected. Smaller or packaged boilers are suitable for domestic purposes as they are small in size and ready to be shipped at a particular location. These are ready-made boilers and req
