Boiler Type In Manufacturing Industry is distinguished based on:

 Boiler Type Based Tube Type (Pipe)

    • Fire Tube Boiler
    • Water Tube Boiler
  • Based on Fuel Type
    • Solid Fuel (Solid Fuel)
    • Oil Fuel
    • Gaseous Fuel
    • Electric

Boiler Type Descryption

Boiler Type “Fire Tube Boiler”

In this boiler has two parts in it namely the tube which is the place of the burning and bagel barrel / varn containing fluid. This type of fire pipe boiler has the characteristics of producing low steam quantities and limited capacity. Principle of Work: The ignition process takes place inside the pipe and the heat generated is delivered directly into the boiler containing the water. Pros: The installation process is quite easy and does not require special arrangement, does not require large area and has a low cost.Disadvantages: Has a burning place that is difficult to reach when it is about to be cleaned, low steam capacity and less efficient because a lot of heat is wasted.

Boiler Type “Water Tube Boiler”

Having similar construction to the type of fire pipe, this type also consists of pipes and barrels, which distinguish only the sides of pipes filled with water while the barrel side is the place of burning. The characteristic of this type is to produce a relatively large amount of steam. Working Principle: The ignition process occurs on the outer side of the pipe, so the heat will be absorbed by the water flowing in the pipe. Pros: Has a large steam capacity, relatively higher efficiency efficiency and fireplace is easy to reach when it will be cleaned. Disadvantages: The initial investment cost is quite expensive, requires a large area and requires additional components in terms of water handling.

Boiler Type “Solid Fuel”

This type of boiler uses solid fuels such as wood, coal, with characteristics such as fuel prices are relatively cheaper and more efficient when compared to electric boilers. Working Principle: Heating comes from the burning of solid fuels or it can also be a mixture of some solid fuels (coal and wood) assisted with oxygen. Pros: Fuel is easy to get and cheaper. Disadvantages: Burning residue is difficult to clean.

Boiler Type “Oil Fuel”

This type has fuel from the fraction of petroleum, with the characteristic that it has a more expensive burning raw materials, but has a better efficiency value when compared to other denan. Working Principle: Heating that comes from the combustion of liquid fuel mixture (kerosen, diesel, residue) with oxygen and heat source. Pros: Has a little burning residue so it is easy to clean and easy to obtain raw materials. Disadvantages: Has a price of expensive raw materials and has an expensive construction.

Boiler Type “Gaseous Fuel”

It has the type of gas fuel with the characteristics of cheaper raw materials and better efficiency value when compared with other types of fuels. Working Principle: Combustion caused by mixture of gas fuel (LNG) with oxygen and heat source. Pros: has the cheapest fuel and better efficiency value. Disadvantages: Costly construction and fuel sources that are difficult to obtain, must be through distribution channels.

Boiler Type “Electric boiler”

From the name alone we certainly already know that the source of heat of this tool comes from electricity, with fuel characteristics are cheaper but have a low efficiency level. Working Principle: The heater comes from electricity that supplies heat. Advantages: Having a simple mooring and heating source is very easy to obtain. Disadvantages: The value of poor efficiency and has a low combustion temperature.
