It will make water into steam by burning heating devices are called steam boilers. And there are mainly two types of steam boiler used in industry,fire tube steam boiler and water tube steam boiler.
Overall, the steam generated by the boiler can have the following purposes.
1.steam boiler for power plant(power generation)
In the thermal power plant, the high temperature generated by the boiler, high pressure steam through pipes steam turbine, steam turbine steam expansion in the rotor blades acting, adjust the rotation of the rotor (speed of 3000r / min). One end of the rotor and the generator rotor is connected, the Electronic rotor rotary cutting magnetic field lines, resulting in strong currents, through transmission and distribution systems into the grid, for industrial production and use of people’s lives. Visible, boilers, steam turbines and generators make up the three main power plant.
2. used in industrial production
Textile, printing and dyeing, paper, rubber, sugar, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, chemical, fertilizer and machinery industries need water for steam production, mainly the use of steam or heat to heat the material to keep dry.
3.to provide power drive
Ships, locomotives and other needs of the boiler provides powered, but in the steel plant with steam turbine driven industry, industrial steam turbine and then driven high pressure blower rotation, to the blast furnace ironmaking blast purpose.
4.for everyday life and sterilization of medical devices
Residential buildings, heating systems, domestic hot water charity hotels, food and cooking equipment sterilization hospitals and so need steam.
