Boiler design is the process of designing boilers used for various purposes.The main function of a boiler is to heat water for steam generation. Steam produced can be used for a variety of purposes including space heating, sterilization, drying, humidification and power generation.
How NOT to Design a Steam System . ... Sizing a Steam Boiler The boiler rating is FROM and AT 212 ... Typical steam header design .
Normally in a steam boiler design assignment the parameters describing the live (output) steam, e.g. mass flow, pressure and temperature are given. If the steam boiler to be designed has a reheat cycle, also reheat pressure and temperature are given. Reheat steam mass flow can be given as well.
PROCESS DESIGN OF STEAM BOILERS (PROJECT STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS) Page 3 of 45 Rev: 01 April 2011 SCOPE This Project Standards and Specifications is intended to cover minimum requirements for process design of field erected water tube boilers. REFERENCES Throughout this Standard the following dated and undated standards/codes are referred to.
FireCAD software is being used by Steam Boiler manufacturers and Engineering consultants across the globe from over 30 countries. Design software for Grate Fired Boilers, Water Tube Package Boilers, Fire Tube Boilers both fired and waste heat type (Steam Boiler and Hot Water Boiler), Combi boilers, Economizers, Air heaters and Superheaters is available.
Boilers must be made adequately strong and with suitable materials to withstand these forces and temperatures. Boiler design requires a detailed study of the forces that are exerted on the various parts and of the temperatures to which they will be exposed.
