The purpose of a power boiler is to create steam by applying heat energy to water. The water supplied to the boiler, which is converted to steam, is called feedwater. This feedwater system removes any impurities in the condensate, which is steam converted back to water, preheats and pressurizes it then returns it to the power boiler steam drum. The power boiler control system maintains the proper flow of feedwater to the boiler. As the hot combustion gases pass from the furnace through the generating tube bank, steam is formed in the tubes and rises to the steam drum. This module describes the major components and flows associated with feedwater and steam in a power boiler.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Define "feedwater" and "latent heat"
  • Identify and describe the safety hazards and guidelines associated with power boiler feedwater and steam
  • Identify the two typical sources of feedwater in a power boiler
  • Identify and describe the major components of a feedwater system
  • Explain the flows of condensate and makeup water to the boiler
  • Describe the effects of improper feedwater levels in the steam drum
  • Identify and describe the major components of a steam system
  • Describe the flow of water and steam within a power boiler

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is feedwater?
The water supplied to the boiler, which is converted to steam, is called feedwater.

What is latent heat?
Latent heat is the energy released or absorbed by a body or thermodynamic system during a constant temperature process, such as a phase change.

What are the two typical sources of feedwater in a power boiler?
The two sources of feedwater are typically condensate, or condensed steam, returned from other facility processes, and fresh makeup water.

What are the major components of a feedwater system?
Clarifier, sand filters, demineralizer, condensate polisher, condensate pump, deaerator, feed pump, feedwater heater, economizer, and feedwater stop/check valve.

What are the major components of a steam system?
Steam drum, mud drum, generating tube bank, superheater, main steam stop, and the attemporator.

Sample Video Transcript

The purpose of a power boiler is to create steam by applying heat energy to water. The water supply to the boiler, which is converted to steam, is called "feed water". This feed water system removes any impurities in the condensate, which is steam converted back to water, preheats and pressurizes it, then returns it to the power boiler steam drum. The power boiler control system maintains the proper flow of feed water to the boiler. As the hot combustion gases pass from the furnace through the generating tube bank, steam is formed in the tubes and rises to the steam drum. The steam system is the path that the water entering the boiler steam drum follows until it passes through the main steam stop as high-pressure and temperature steam. The power boiler control system maintains the correct flow of steam at the proper pressure and temperature.

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 provided.

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. Available languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
