  • The Power of Steam

    Steam Boilers Steam boilers are still important in today's world. They are used to power items like laundry cleaning services, water heaters, and even whole-house heating systems. However, the boiler was never so important as during the industrial revolution and the invention and heavy use of steam-powered trains and boats. About 100 years ago, boiler manufacturers focused heavily on the invention of boilers for these two uses. There were many reasons why people liked steam boilers better than coal-powered trains and boats. Steam power is cleaner that coal, and does...

  • Steam Boilers: An Important Part of History

    Steam Boilers Imagine life before steam. Transportation was more difficult. Communication was more difficult. Commerce was more difficult. The list goes on and on. The invention of the steam engine was an integral part of industry during the Industrial Revolution. Today, it is involved in or responsible for nearly all electricity generated and consumed around the world. Steam boilers are vessels in which steam is produced and captured. It is then used in order to heat homes and businesses. It can also be used as an energy source for industrial...

  • Clean Steam Boilers

    Steam boilers are already one of the cleanest forms of heating and power in factory settings, but a basic steam boiler does not provide enough sanitation for all industrial uses. In fact, some extremely sensitive processes, including chemical processing and lab-based product development require a higher level of cleanliness and sanitation. Luckily, there are clean steamers that provide all of the power of a traditional steam boiler, but with increased sanitation and cleanliness overall to protect the integrity of products and processing. A clean steamer is specifically designed for use...

  • Selection Criteria for Steam Boilers

    Cleaver-Brooks Deciding which steam boiler to purchase is commonly determined by equipment cost. And while cost is an important consideration, this single criterion does not take into consideration a product’s operational inefficiencies, which can lead to excessive lifetime costs.  Rather, equipment selection should be based on the overall performance of the equipment relative to system demand requirements and lifetime operational costs. To that end, the evaluation process should examine the following important attributes of the steam boiler and related equipment: Efficiency Appropriate Load Response ...

Industry Information

Steam Boilers

A steam boiler is defined as a vessel that captures and produces steam to either heat homes and businesses, or to provide energy for various industrial functions. The name “steam boiler” is typically used to refer to equipment that generates heat, but the term can technically be applied to any piece of equipment that utilizes steam for its primary functions.

A steam boiler falls under the category of high pressure boilers. Within the machine, steam becomes pressurized and can release energy once it builds up in a sufficient quantity. When the release of this energy is controlled, steam can be used to power different types of machinery. The steam engine is the most well known steam-powered machine. Steam engines, as well as other steam powered machinery, first appeared roughly two centuries ago and played a pivotal role in the Industrial Revolution, and is still used today for the generation of electricity. Ever since the introduction of the steam engine, more and more uses for steam have been discovered, and new uses are being discovered today.

Steam boilers, in terms of the types of steam boilers that are used as a heat generator for buildings and industrial functions, consist of several general parts that all types of steam boilers possess, regardless of their shape, size, or purpose. The first component is a pressure vessel. The pressure vessel is a chamber which holds the steam before it is distributed elsewhere. Pressure vessels can be made in a variety of sizes and shapes, and usually come in the form of steel tanks that are built to withstand high levels of pressure as they hold a particular material. The steam is released from the pressure vessel to the appropriate location by a heat source and a valve mechanism. These valves are vital to the boiler system, as they are utilized to not only regulate and direct pressurized steam, but release it in case of an emergency.

In the earlier days of steam boilers, many boiler failures occurred due to faulty pressure vessel construction. Since the malfunctioning of a vessel that houses steam at a high amount of pressure could result in catastrophic explosions, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) have set a strict system of regulations in place for their construction.

In addition, alternative heating sources have been developed, such as electricity, wood, fossil fuels, natural gas, and coal. Each of these alternative energy sources has its own set of benefits and disadvantages in terms of cost, cleanliness, eco-friendliness, and efficiency. Electric heating is 100% efficient, meaning every bit of the electricity is converted to heat. It greatly reduces environmental impact, because it releases no carbon dioxide or other emissions. It costs little to install and allows for easy temperature control. Although the initial cost is minimal, it can be expensive to operate in the long run. Wood heating generates a large amount of heat from a small amount of wood. Like electricity, it is a renewable resource, as opposed to burning fossil fuels. However, wood heating has the potential of releasing carbon dioxide and other emissions into the air. Fossil fuels are cheap and reliable, but are an unsustainable nonrenewable resource and releases a disconcerting amount of carbon into the atmosphere. Natural gas can be efficiently and safely stored, and can be renewable when created from certain materials. However, it can create greenhouse gas emissions, can be hazardous if not properly handled, and it can be difficult to check for leaks because of its odorless and colorless properties. Finally, coal comes in an abundant supply, is relatively inexpensive, energy efficient, and can be converted to a gas or liquid. However, coal is a nonrenewable resource and contains the largest amount of carbon dioxide per BTU, making it the largest contributor to global warming out of all the other energy sources. Burning coal also has a negative impact on forests, the air, and the health of the living things that live in the forests and breathe the air in.

Out of all of these energy sources, Steam boilers are one of the most sanitary. However, sensitive applications such as laboratory processes and functions within the food and beverage industry require an exceptionally high level of sanitation. Therefore, there are types of steam boilers available that are designed specifically for these applications. These “clean” steam boilers keep the water within them clean using reverse osmosis as well as other purification processes.

There is not a single steam boiler design that is suitable for all applications. Therefore, energy source considerations, as well as the configuration of the machine, are important to keep in mind when searching for the right kind.
