PDF Drive is your search engine for PDF files. As of today we vii This book is written for the boiler operator, an operating engineer or stationary engineer B.
An enclosed smokebox covering the front of these tubes leads upwards to the chimney or funnel. Typical Scotch boilers had a pair of furnaces, larger ones had three. Above this size, such as for large steam ships , it was more usual to install multiple boilers.
The boiler barrel contains larger flue-tubes to carry the superheater elements, where present. Forced draught is provided in the locomotive boiler by injecting exhausted steam back into the exhaust via a blast pipe in the smokebox. Locomotive-type boilers are also used in traction engines , steam rollers , portable engines and some other steam road vehicles. The inherent strength of the boiler means it is used as the basis for the vehicle: all the other components, including the wheels, are mounted on brackets attached to the boiler.
It is rare to find superheaters designed into this type of boiler, and they are generally much smaller and simpler than railway locomotive types.

The locomotive-type boiler is also a characteristic of the overtype steam wagon , the steam-powered fore-runner of the truck. In this case, however, heavy girder frames make up the load-bearing chassis of the vehicle, and the boiler is attached to this. Taper boiler Certain railway locomotive boilers are tapered from a larger diameter at the firebox end to a smaller diameter at the smokebox end. This reduces weight and improves water circulation. Vertical fire-tube boiler[ edit ] Main article: Vertical boiler A vertical fire-tube boiler VFT , colloquially known as the "vertical boiler", has a vertical cylindrical shell, containing several vertical flue tubes.
Horizontal return tubular boiler[ edit ] Horizontal Return Tubular boilers from the Staatsbad Bad Steben GmbH Horizontal return tubular boiler HRT has a horizontal cylindrical shell, containing several horizontal flue tubes, with the fire located directly below the boiler's shell, usually within a brickwork setting Admiralty-type direct tube boiler[ edit ] Extensively used by Britain, before and in the early days of ironclads, the only protected place was below the waterline, sometimes under an armoured deck, so to fit below short decks, the tubes were not led back above the furnace but continued straight from it with keeping the combustion chamber in between the two.
Hence the name, and considerably reduced diameter, compared to the ubiquitous Scotch or return tube boiler. Further, on account of the length of the boiler, for an equal angle of inclination, the effect on the water-level is much greater. Finally, the unequal expansion of the various parts of the boiler is more pronounced, especially at the top and bottom, due to the increased ratio between the length and the diameter of the boiler; the local strains are also more severe on account of the comparatively feeble circulation in long and low boilers.
Also, the same length of a combustion chamber was much less effective on a direct tube than on a return tube boiler, at least without baffling. It has only firetubes, functioning as a furnace and combustion chamber also, with multiple burner nozzles injecting premixed air and natural gas under pressure.
It claims reduced thermal stresses, and lacks refractory brickwork completely due to its construction. A Cornish boiler may have several water-tubes across the diameter of the flue this is common in steam launches.
A locomotive boiler with a wide firebox may have arch tubes or thermic syphons. As firebox technology developed, it was found that placing a baffle of firebricks heat-resistant bricks inside the firebox to direct the flow of hot flue gasses up into the top of the firebox before it flowed into the fire tubes increased efficiency by equalizing the heat between upper and lower fire tubes. To hold these in place, a metal bracket was used, but to prevent these brackets from burning and eroding away they were built as water tubes, with cool water from the bottom of the boiler moving upwards by convection as it heated, and carrying the heat away before the metal reached its failure temperature.
Another technique for increasing the heating surface is to include internal rifling inside the boiler tubes also known as Serve tubes. Not all shell boilers raise steam; some are designed specifically for heating pressurised water. Reverse flame[ edit ] In homage to the Lancashire design, modern shell boilers can come with a twin furnace design. A more recent development has been the reverse flame design where the burner fires into a blind furnace and the combustion gasses double back on themselves.
This results in a more compact design and less pipework.
Package boiler[ edit ] The term "package" boiler evolved in the early- to midth century from the practice of delivering boiler units to site already fitted with insulation, electrical panels, valves and gauges. This was in contrast to earlier practice where little more than the pressure vessel was delivered and the ancillary components were fitted on-site. Kewanee Gas-Fired Packaged Fire-Tube Boiler from rated at 25 horsepower Safety considerations[ edit ] Because the fire-flume boiler itself is the pressure vessel, it requires a number of safety features to prevent mechanical failure.
Safety valves release steam before a dangerous pressure can be built up Fusible plugs over the firebox melt at a temperature lower than that of the firebox plates, thereby warning the operators by the noisy escape of steam if the water level is too low to cool the firebox crown safely.
Stays, or ties, physically link the firebox and boiler casing, preventing them from warping.
Since any corrosion is hidden, the stays may have longitudinal holes, called tell-tales, drilled in them which leak before they become unsafe. The fire-tube type boiler that was used in the Stanley Steamer automobile had several hundred tubes which were weaker than the outer shell of the boiler, making an explosion virtually impossible as the tubes would fail and leak long before the boiler exploded.
The heating up flap and its safety door lock do not give way for smoke emission. Moreover, the combustion is stabilized throughout the whole combustion period by the fan and enables an unproblematic operation.
Disease of Lungs in Boiler Scalers
Even the boiler size with 25kW can comfortably be filled with 0,5m logs through the large fuel chamber door. An overlength of the logs is, at least to some extent, no problem due to the depth of the fuel chamber. Long refueling intervals are the result of the large filling capacity. The permanently increasing environmental impact by dust and CO2 urges the industry on new developments and more modern technology in all areas. A modern and modular control concept of our wood log boiler series HVS LC ensures more performance and a low, environmentally friendly pollutant emission due to the serially integrated lambda sensor which observes permanently the exhaust gas values.
With the help of the integrated boiler and exhaust gas logic the intelligent control recognizes the requirements of energy. Due to the modulating air supply the boiler is able to react to a possible power reserve and can therefore ensure an almost perfect exploitation of combustibles. This means the highest possible comfort for you and a steady and even combustion for your wood.
You can only achieve an optimal efficiency factor with a perfectly aligned system. Therefore, we generally recommend our high quality stratification tanks SLS with integrated, patented, stratification system. The produced heat of the wood log boiler can be perfectly stored in this kind of tank.
The stored thermal energy is relieved into the heating system when needed. This keeps your fuel consumption as low as possible and even preserves the environment.This stresses the importance of proper maintenance and operator training.
Flue Gas Economize rs Flue gas economizers offer the best opportunity for heat recovery. Condensing Boilers Both the system design and operating conditions are critical to the successful operation and performance of a condensing boiler. Vertical fire-tube boiler[ edit ] Main article: Vertical boiler A vertical fire-tube boiler VFT , colloquially known as the "vertical boiler", has a vertical cylindrical shell, containing several vertical flue tubes.
The tubes are tapered, simply to make their installation through the flue easier. Moreover, the combustion is stabilized throughout the whole combustion period by the fan and enables an unproblematic operation.
The sections are sealed together by gaskets. If this condition is observed the boiler should be inspected promptly. There is no generation of steam bubbles within the water, because the pressure is above the critical pressure point at which steam bubbles can form. Here are the website rules, as well as some tips for using this forum.
