Boiler - Energy Education

Boilers are used in power plants in order to produce high pressured steam, so that the plant can generate electricity.The process that does this is known as the Rankine cycle.The boiler takes in energy from some form of fuel such as coal, natural gas, or nuclear fuel to heat water into steam.All but a small fraction of the world's primary energy comes from fuels, and about three-quarters of

The Importance of Boiler Water and Steam Chemistry

The Importance of Boiler Water and Steam Chemistry. Steam Purity. Purity or chemistry requirements for steam can be as simple as a specified maximum moisture content, or can include maximum concentrations for a variety of chemical species. Often, for low pressure building or process heater steam, only a maximum moisture content is specified.
