The purpose of a power boiler is to create steam by applying heat energy to water. The necessary heat energy is produced by combustion. Fuel and oxygen are required for combustion to occur. To ensure complete combustion of the fuel in the boiler furnace, enough air must be thoroughly mixed with the fuel. Each power boiler fuel requires a different amount of air for complete combustion and the combustion controls must be designed to provide it. This module describes the role of combustion in power boilers as well as major components and flows of power boiler air systems.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify and describe the safety hazards and guidelines associated with power boiler air and combustion
  • Define "combustion"
  • Explain the role of combustion in power boilers
  • Describe the two basic air systems for power boilers
  • Identify and describe major components of power boiler air systems
  • Identify and describe the primary process flows
  • Describe factors that affect the combustion process
  • Differentiate between the firing techniques needed for good combustion depending on the fuel

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is combustion?
Combustion is the rapid chemical combination of oxygen with the combustible elements of a fuel, resulting in production of heat.

What is the role of combustion in power boilers?
Combustion creates steam by applying heat energy to water.

What are the two basic air systems for power boilers?
Pressurized furance and balanced draft.

What are the major components of a power boiler air system?
Forced draft fan, air heater, windbox, primary air fan, overfire air fan, and induced air fan.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

The purpose of a power boiler is to create steam by applying heat energy to water. The necessary heat energy is produced by combustion. Fuel and oxygen are required for combustion to occur. Air, which is 21% oxygen, provides the oxygen, while the major fuels used in the power boiler are natural gas, fuel oil, coal, and biomass. Design characteristics of power boilers differ depending on the fuel burned. These characteristics include shape of the furnace, air system design, tube spacing, super heater design, and the type of air pollution equipment installed. To ensure complete combustion of the fuel in the boiler furnace, enough air must be thoroughly mixed with the fuel. Each power boiler fuel requires a different amount of air for complete combustion, and the combustion controls must be designed to provide it.

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

I would like to have several employees take multiple courses. How can I set that up?

We're in the process of making bulk course and multiple user purchases easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and contact us with details on who you'd like to assign courses to. We can set up each user's training plan and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

Can I get a free full-length preview of a course to see what this course covers?

While we do our best to offer details on course contents, we don't normally offer full-length previews. But please contact us with more details for a better understanding of what your organizaton needs and how we can help.

Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes. All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of each eLearning course.

How do I log in to take a course that I have already paid for?

You'll receive an email with login details moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course. Just click the login link and enter the user name and password provieded.

Do you have courses in different languages?

Yes. While all of our courses are originally produced in English, we develop many courses in a growing number of languages, including Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, and Thai. Availabl languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
