Steam Boiler And Steam Production
The first steam engine (Savery Machine) was invented by the British engineer Thomas Savery in 1698 for the purpose of discharging the water in the mines and it was developed and evolved in many different sectors for different purposes. Today, a derivative of these machines, which are mostly encountered in industry, are steam boilers.
The boiler is a closed and pressurized vessel used to produce steam pressure at a pressure higher than atmospheric pressure. By keeping the steam in this closed container, pressure is obtained, and the pressure increases and the evaporation temperature rises. In this way, steam with high thermal capacity is prepared for transfer.
Boiler types are divided according to their structure, usage area and fuel types.
The boilers are named according to type of material used in the construction of boilers (steel boiler, etc.), the type of fuel used (liquid fuel, gas fuel, etc.), pressure in the combustion chamber (counter-pressure, counter-pressure), heating fluid type (hot water boiler, welding water boiler, etc.), the structural design of the boiler (flame pipe, water pipe, etc.) or the shape of the boiler (semi-cylindrical, fully cylindrical, etc.).
