Boiler Types and Applications
In Boiler Types and Applications , you'll learn ...
- The differences between industrial and utility boilers
- The configurations and typical fuels for various firetube boilers: HRT, Scotch and firebox
- Watertube boiler types and applications
- Applications and features of vertical tubeless and cast iron boilers
Boilers use the chemical energy in fuel to raise the energy content of water so that it can be used for heating or to drive turbines or other rotating equipment. There are many different types and sizes of boilers commercially available that burn a wide variety of fuels. The selection of a boiler is dependent on the characteristics of the available fuel, the specified heating output, the location where it will be installed, the required emissions controls and many other factors.
This course provides an overview of the different types of industrial boilers commercially available including the types of fuels, fuel delivery systems and burners employed. Boiler emission rates mandated by the EPA are also briefly covered.
This course is relevant to engineers who design steam systems, as well as any engineer interested in learning more about the types of boilers available and their applications. No prerequisite course is required to take this introductory course on boilers.
Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Types of boilers commercially available and their relative merits
