Brief Description of fire tube Boilers
In Fire tube boilers, water is contained in a shell and hot gases pass through the tubes. Burners are provided to fire the fuel inside the furnace. In case of solid fuels, stationery or movable chain grates are provided inside the furnace. Fire tube boilers can be either wet back or dry back. In wet back boilers, turnaround channel or reversible chamber is present at the rear end of furnace. Fire tube boilers can be two pass, three pass or four pass type. in regular scotch marine boilers, fuel is fired in furnace and the hot gases pass thorough second and third pass before leaving the boiler to chimney. In revotherm or reversible flame boilers, fuel is fired and hot gases are reversed in the same furnace and enter the second pass at the front side. is connected to top steam/water drum with riders and downcomers. Boiler repairs and maintenance are minimum in fire tube
Fired fire tube boilers consists of a furnace and 2 to 4 gas passes. Fire tube boiler is fitted with either fuel burner in case of oil/gas firing and a grate in case of solid fuels. Then there are front and rear gas boxes to turn the gases from one pass to the other. In heat recovery fire tube boiler, there will not be any furnace and only gas passes are present. In case of Elevated drum type, there is one additional steam drum and a set of downcomers and risers.
Furnace in Fire tube boilers is cylindrical in shape surrounded by water on outer side and with burner and flame inside. Plain furnaces are provided with bowling hoops to take care of expansion and also to act as stiffener supports. Corrugated furnaces are also common wherein 30 - 100% of the total furnace is corrugated to take care of the expansion due to flame. Rear end of the furnace is connected to reversible chamber or turnaround channel in wet back boilers. Boiler codes prescribe minimum furnace diameter for a given heat input. Furnace diameter provided shall be bigger than this minimum requirement. There are restrictions on furnace thickness too.
Hot gases coming out of furnace enter the second pass through reversible chamber. Most of the standard fire tube package boilers are of three pass type furnace being the first pass and two additional passes to cool the gases to a reasonably lower temperature. Four pass boilers which offer a little higher efficiency for a bit higher price are also available.
