The Fire tube boiler is intended for transmitting hot-gases using heat source as well as cycle. These gases flow through pipes with a water-filled drum. This procedure efficiently transmits the heat from the hot gas to the water, which efficiently produces steam.
30-08-2019· Fire Tube Boiler In Fire Tube Boilers, hot flue gases will be flown inside the tube and these tubes are surrounded by water. These are the low-pressure boiler which cannot generate much heat compared to water tube boilers. As the production of heat is less the overall efficiency of this boiler is also low.
04-03-2020· In fire tube boiler, the fuel is burnt inside a furnace. The hot gases produced in the furnace then passes through the fire tubes. The fire tubes are immersed in water inside the main vessel of the boiler. As the hot gases are passed through these tubes, the heat energy of the gasses is transferred to the water surrounds them.
The universal type of steam boilers is the smoke tube or fire tube boiler where the heat and gases of combustion (from furnace) pass through tubes that are enclosed by water. While in water tube boilers, water passes through tubes. Mostly used boiler in small and medium industries with different fuels and steam pressure requirements.
