How to increase the pressure of an electric steam generator

Plant Engineering | When to use electric steam boilers

6/9/2001 · Electric steam boilers can supply process needs when large central boilers are shutdown. When central boiler turndowns are too high, electric boilers are economical to operate. Electric boilers can deliver steam in one-half hour. Fossil fuel producers are again turning up the heat on industrial and commercial operators of large fossil-fueled

11/8/2021 · In a conventional steam generator such as a package boiler, the exit gas temperature is independent of steam pressure. With say a 230 F feed water temperature, an exit gas temperature of about 300 F can be easily achieved using an economizer as the heat recovery equipment.

Basic Steam Theory - Steam Pressure

As yet more steam is generated it becomes even more compressed and its pressure continues to increase accordingly. This pressure of the steam is exerted in all directions. So besides pressing on the inside surfaces of the boiler, the steam also creates a pressure on the surface of the water.

Calculate How To - Energy

If the plant has only one steam generator (boiler), uses a single fuel, and has a single steam pressure level, it is relatively easy to assign a cost to the steam. However, in most cases, there are multiple steam sources and multiple fuels. There are also multiple

Heat Recovery Steam Generator - an overview | ScienceDirect …

Heat recovery steam generator is a high-efficiency steam boiler that uses hot gases from a gas turbine for reciprocating engine to generate steam in a thermodynamic Rankine Cycle. This system is able to generate steam at different pressure levels according to …

Outline of Thermal Power Generation [KEPCO]

Steam power generation. Fuels such as heavy oil, LNG (liquefied natural gas) and coal are burned inside a boiler to generate steam at high temperature and high pressure. This steam is used to rotate the impeller of the steam turbine. This drives the power generators connected to the turbine that generate electricity.

An introduction to steam generation and distribution

Trevithick was the first to successfully use high-pressure steam (then known as "strong" steam). Until ca. 1800, the weakness of existing boilers coupled with the influence of James Watt had generally restricted steam boilers to very low pressures or "weak" steam.
