Boiler Types and Classification:
There are two general types of boilers: ''fire-tube'' and ''water-tube''. Boilers are classified as "high-pressure" or "low-pressure" and "steam boiler" or "hot water boiler." Boilers that operate higher than 15 psig are called "high-pressure" boilers.
In fire-tube boilers, combustion gases pass through the inside of the tubes with water surrounding the outside of the tubes. The advantages of a fire-tube boiler are its simple construction and less rigid water treatment requirements. The disadvantages are the excessive weight-per-pound of steam generated, excessive time required to raise steam pressure because of the relatively large volume of water, and inability to respond quickly to load changes, again, due to the large water volume.
The body of the boiler is the pressure vessel and contains the fluid. In most cases, this fluid is water that will be circulated for heating purposes or converted to steam for process use.
Why Boiler Treatment is required?
We cannot afford to lose steam production due to Boiler shut down. Its always recommended to treat and maintain Boiler using complete treatment program. In order to have prolong life of Boiler system, continuous generation of quality steam & heat supply, Boiler must be treated to get rid of corrosion & scale.
A successful boiler operation can be accomplished with 4 stages of treatment:
AKWT has plenty of experience in operation and maintenance of steam Boiler with many references available all over GCC. We have full range of quality chemicals for all types of Boilers
