Working of Boiler in thermal power plantA boiler is closed vessel in which water under presser is converted into steel. It is one of the me jar component of a thermal power plant
A boiler is always design to absorb maximum about of heat realized in the process of combustion . This heat is transferred to the boiler by all the three modes of heat transfer.
Methods which are used to pass the steam to one place to another place is given below
1. Fire tube boiler
Type of boiler used in thermal power plant
2.Water tube boiler
1. Fire tube boilerIt is also divided in two parts according to its position
- Horizontal fire tube boiler
- Vertical fire tube boiler
This is boiler is simple , compact in construction its initial cost is low . A vertical fire tube boiler occupies little flour space. They are economical only for low presser and therefore available an small sizes having street capacity of about 15000 thousand kg per hour.
