What is a Water Tube Boiler?

Water tube boiler is a type of boiler in which water circulates in tubes heated externally by the fire. Fuel is burned inside the furnace, creating hot gas which heats water in the steam-generating tubes.In smaller boilers, additional generating tubes are separate in the furnace, while larger utility boilers rely on the water-filled tubes that make up the walls of the furnace to generate steam.
A water tube boiler is able to operate at higher pressures than other systems, which makes it an attractive option for some situations. Water tube boilers are more modern and a more sophisticated design than fire tube designs.

Special features of water tube boiler:
Water tube boilers have the high evaporating capacity (20,000 to 40,000 kg/h) compared with other boilers. The operating pressure lies between 11.5 to 17.5 bar.
The draft losses are minimum.
The defective tubes in water tube boilers can be identified and replaced easily.
The entire boiler rests on iron structures, independent of brick structure.

How Does a Water Tube Boiler Work?

Thin tubes inside the boiler carry water which is heated by burning fuels. This will then change the water from a liquid into a gas which is then stored inside a steam drum. Simply put, water tube boilers burn fuel to create heat energy, which then heats water contained in water tubes to produce steam. The water tubes in Tru Steam’s boiler range are specifically designed to be hardwearing and efficient, and have a large bore. This enables them to create and handle steam at high pressures, which can then be harnessed and used to power machinery.
Water tube boilers are versatile systems, and the nature of their construction means that any fuel source can be used to create the heat. Tru-Steam water tube boilers utilise a simple, 2-drum design, which makes it suitable for a range of different applications.
