Steam boiler and hot water boiler are widely used in industries to supply heat energy or hot water for production. For power plants, large capacity steam boiler are used to generate high temperature high pressure steam for power engine to generating power. There are general introduction of the use of industrial boiler in industry.
Industrial boiler system
Water is turned into hot water or steam by heating hot water boiler or steam boiler with fuels such as coal, oil, gas, biomass, which is the use of industrial boilers. The steam or hot water is then transported to the consumers via pipe systems. Loss of water must be compensated by treated fresh water to avoid corrosion. Flue gases created by combustion are discharged into the atmosphere through a chimney. The residual heat in the flue gases can be reused by particularly efficient systems.
Use of boiler systems
Industrial hot water boiler systems are very similar to the household heating boilers. The main difference is that industrial boilers have a larger capacity, which can meet the need of family, hotels, hospitals, industrial buildings or city central heating. Steam boiler systems are used in many industry sectors, such as food industry, textile mill, paper factory, sugar mill, oil field ,power plants and other industries. There are some examples of the use of steam boilers in industries.
Boiler in industries
It would be inefficient for large laundries to get rid of spots and dirt with electrical energy, because that will be expensive. Steam can also be get with an industrial boiler that burning coal or other fuel, which is cheaper and higher efficient. For food industry, food must often be heated or boiled during processing. Thus this industrial sector obviously needs plenty of thermal energy with a steam boiler. Before enjoying the beer there is a complex production process. The mash of malt and water must be heated to various temperatures in two to four hours. Steam is also required to heat up the water needed for cleaning the empty bottles.
