The boilers and their characteristics

A Boiler basically consists of a drum which is closed at the base of its base and in its development is equipped with fire pipe and water pipe. Many people classify boilers depending on the point of view of each. In the meantime, you can check out GEMLSA if you’re looking for the high-quality boilers for your business.

Based on the fluid flowing in the pipes, the kettle is classified

Fire tube boiler In a fire pipe kettle, the fluid flowing in the pipe is a flame gas (combustion), which carries thermal energy, which immediately transfers it to boiler water through the heating surface. The purpose of these fire pipe is to facilitate heat distribution (heat) to boiler water. Fire/smoke gas flows in the pipe while the water/steam outside the drum pipe serves to place water and steam, in addition to the drum also as a place of the heating field. The heating field is located inside the drum, so the area of heating that can be made is limited.

Water tube boiler In a water pipe kettle, the fluid flowing in the pipe is water, the heat energy is transferred from outside the pipe (ie the kitchen space) to the boiler water.

Ways of working:

The ignition process occurs outside the pipe. The heat produced is used to heat the water-filled pipe. The water of the feed was previously conditioned through the economizer. The resulting steam is then collected first in a steam drum until appropriate. After going through the secondary superheater and superheater stage, new steam is released into the main distribution pipeline.


The resulting heat efficiency level is quite high.

Less tolerant of water quality resulting from water treatment plants. So water should be conditioned against minerals and other water-soluble ingredients.

This boiler is used for the needs of very high steam pressure as in power generation.

Using fuel oil, and gas for water tube boiler that assembled from the factory.

Use solid fuel for boiler water tubes not assembled in the factory
