Steam Generator Boilers for Process Heating


Steam for process heating (industrial applications) can be produced in either the classic fire-tube steam boilers or in the compact steam generator boiler, and they will be gas-fired or oil-fired (burner).

If you are not sure how to choose - then it might be a good ideas to read more using the link at bottom of this page, about how to select between these two types of steam boilers of different principles. This will assist you ensuring an optimal solution for your particular task.

Steam generator boilers are designed with forced circulated feed water that evaporates when passing through the inside of a tube formed as a winded-up tube coil.

They are therefore also called water-tube steam boilers.

The alternative to this is the fire-tube steam boilers, which are designed differently i.e. as a pool of water gradually being evaporated by means of heat from the submerged combustion chamber and bundle of tubes through which the flue gas passes on the inside.

Steam can also be produced on electric steam boilers.

These types have become a good environmental option in a time where wind power, water power and nuclear power can deliver electrical energy without producing CO2 and NOX.

The electrical heated boilers are fast and economical to install, but they are still often expensive in use and therefore most common for for rather small steam capacities.

The most environmental solutions with the lowest operational costs, are however the exhaust gas steam boiler offering steam production from waste heat utilization.

A special design of steam boilers also offer customized solution for clean steam used for instance in food industry and for other clean applications.

All in all, steam can be produced and used in numerous ways:

  • Steam boiler generators with forced feed water circulation (oil & gas-fired)

  • Classic fire-tube steam boilers (oil & gas-fired)

  • Electrical steam boilers

  • Exhaust gas steam boilers - steam production by waste heat utilization (heat recovery)

  • Evaporators - production of steam by heat exchanging to e.g. hot thermal oil.

  • Clean steam boilers - production of sanitary / culinary steam for food industry

  • Clean steam boilers - production of clean steam for special application process industry

  • Steam reboilers - production of clean steam by high pressure industrial steam

  • Pure steam reboiler - production of pharmaceutical quality steam (WFI-based).
