Cornish Boiler is a fire tube boiler. After Cochran, Locomotive, Scotch marine boiler, a Cornish boiler is another type of fire tube boiler. This type of boiler works on very limited pressure which is up to 20 bar only. It has a long horizontal cylinder with a single large flue containing the fire.
Fire-tube boiler definition is - a boiler in which water surrounds the tubes through which hot gases pass from the furnace to the stack. a boiler in which water surrounds the tubes through which hot gases pass from the furnace to the stack‚Ä¶ See the full definition SINCE 1828
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.
a closed vessel or arrangement of vessels and tubes, together with a furnace or other heat source, in which steam or other vapor is generated from water to drive turbines or engines, supply heat, process certain materials, etc. Compare fire-tube boiler, water-tube boiler. a vessel, as a kettle, for boiling or heating.
A fire-tube boiler is a type of boiler in which hot gases from a fire pass through one or more tubes running through a sealed container of water. The heat of the gases is transferred through the walls of the tubes by thermal conduction, heating the water and ultimately creating steam.
Cochran boiler is a fire tube boiler (Fire inside the boiler and water surrounding to them) in which coal or gases as a working fluid is used, for generating the steam and that steam further used for several purposes. Now comes to the construction, Cochran Boiler Parts or Construction:
