Boiler (power generation) - Wikipedia

A boiler or steam generator is a device used to create steam by applying heat energy to water.Although the definitions are somewhat flexible, it can be said that older steam generators were commonly termed boilers and worked at low to medium pressure (7–2,000 kPa or 1–290 psi) but, at pressures above this, it is more usual to speak of a steam generator.

Basic Steam Theory - Steam Pressure

As yet more steam is generated it becomes even more compressed and its pressure continues to increase accordingly. This pressure of the steam is exerted in all directions. So besides pressing on the inside surfaces of the boiler, the steam also creates a pressure on the surface of the water.

Steam Calculators: Boiler Calculator

2015/3/17 · Steam, Boiler, and Blowdown Pressure are the same. Combustion Efficiency is the % of fuel energy that is directly added to the feedwater and not otherwise lost or used. Blowdown Rate is the % of incoming feedwater mass flow rate that leaves the boiler as a saturated liquid at boiler pressure.

An introduction to steam generation and distribution

Trevithick was the first to successfully use high-pressure steam (then known as "strong" steam). Until ca. 1800, the weakness of existing boilers coupled with the influence of James Watt had generally restricted steam boilers to very low pressures or "weak" steam.

Sioux - Steam Generators - Sioux Steam-Flo & Industrial Generators

Low-Pressure Steam Generator. The Sioux Steam-Flo ® steam generator is a perfect source of low-pressure steam for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. This unit can be used in place of a conventional boiler. These industrial steam generators produce from 370-3,450 lbs. (168-1,564 kg) per hour of saturated steam in minutes.
