What are the types of industrial boilers?

Industrial Boilers America provides industrial boilers that create efficient, clean energy while increasing revenue for its customers. We work on industrial boiler projects all over the world. Read on to learn about what types of industrial boilers are out there and what the differences are.

What are industrial boilers?

Companies that use our industrial boiler systems are helping to increase economic, environmental, and social gains for themselves and their regions. That’s because industrial boilers use renewable energy sources to produce energy.

A long time ago, inept designs caused industrial boilers to malfunction. Industrial Boilers America uses a variety of designs to prevent this, making industrial boilers the twenty-first century standard for a safe green energy source.

Our industrial boiler designs also bypass the need for local utility boilers. This saves a lot of money for our customers.

Let’s look at some of the industrial boilers we offer.

Industrial Biomass Boilers

An industrial biomass boiler provides natural carbon, reducing your harmful carbon footprint. It uses residue and waste from:

  • agriculture
  • forest
  • industry
  • urban areas

Fully automated biomass boilers run off wood residue deposited into a holding tank. Calculations pre-determine how much residue a conveyor should send from the holding tank to the boiler. This happens via computer control and a laser. This process requires little in terms of operational costs. All that it needs is a system operator for the computer.

Semi-automated biomass boilers contain smaller tanks. Therefore, they require more direct oversight. The choice between fully and semi-automated depends on each facility’s need and size.

Pellet-fired industrial biomass boilers use different types of pellets. As a result, they require much less storage space, saving money. Biomass industrial boilers can also combine heat and power.

Industrial biomass boilers are excellent for plants switching from old school energy sources like coal.

Circulating Fluidized Bed Boiler

A circulating fluidized bed boiler uses higher gas velocity. It combines gas and an array of particles. This process enhances combustion reactions. In addition, this boiler collects furnace residue and recirculates it again.

The circulating fluidized bed boiler

  • handles fuels that are hard to burn
  • withstands harsh conditions
  • works for large plants

It does all this without the need for external emission controls. Therefore, this boiler is a sound investment for large plants because of its durability in extreme conditions.

Fire and Water Tube Boilers

The fire tube boiler pushes hot gases through tubes passing through a sealed water container. The heat from the gases permeates the tube walls, creating steam from the water. Locomotives forged their way into history because of fire tube boilers. They have a long, well-documented duration.

Modern fire tube boilers work for different marine needs.

The water tube boiler uses an external fire source to circulate water. Fuel burns on the interior, and this creates steam. Water-tube boilers use a limited amount of water, yet another environmental plus of our boilers.

Water-tube boilers work well for pulp and paper manufacturing, refining, and steam turbine power.

Thermic Fluid Heaters

Thermic fluid heaters use oil to handle high heat requirements. They are made for heat transfers without pressure. The heat transfer sets off designated work processes.

Thermic fluid heaters benefits include:

  • outdoor installation
  • reduced maintenance
  • no need for attendants

Thermic fluid heaters provide green efficiency for gas processors, solar thermal power plants, and storage tank installers.

Waste Heat Recovery Boiler

A waste heat recovery boiler recovers heat waste from industrial processes and machinery. Unfortunately, heat waste is a big problem. It escapes through things like flues and pipes. This costs a lot of money, and it prevents efficiency, too.

One of the best places for this boiler is right above heat-generating equipment. The steam derived from this boiler activates electricity-producing generators. Once the waste heat recovery boiler’s installed, the heat waste can be used for:

  • heating large spaces
  • turbine steam production
  • water heating

Industries that use cement, non-ferrous metal, and steel maintain high environmental standards with a waste heat recovery boiler.
