Boiler Water Conductivity Measurement Fundamentals

Figure 2 shows the relationship between pressure and stack temperature for a test on a 65,000 lb/hr watertube boiler operating at a constant output of 38,500 lb/hr. As tested, the boiler stack temperature varies linearly with steam pressure. A savings of 0.4% to 0.8% of the fuel input can be expected from lower stack temperature.

square inch absolute. Gauge pressure (psig) plus 14.7 equals absolute pressure. Or, absolute pressure minus 14.7 equals gauge pressure. Pressure/Temperature Relationship (Columns 1, 2 and 3). For every pressure of pure steam there is a corresponding temperature. Example: The temperature of 250 psig pure steam is always 406°F.

and the flash tank pressure is considered the minimum steam load pressure. For example, if a boiler that has a water volume of only 77 gallons and maintains the header pressure of 125psig is depressurized to 80 psig (minimum load limit), 3.4 percent of the boiler

Today's Lesson in Physics: The relationship between steam

Dec 15, 2015 · The higher the pressure of a boiler the more heat must be applied to make steam. With the increased pressure, you in turn get steam at higher temperatures. Higher temperature steam contains more energy per pound, which is known as Enthalpy. Enthalpy is defined as the thermodynamic potential made up of energy and pressure. In the US, its common unit of measurement is BTUs/Lb. So, if the …

Understanding Steam Pressure Controls: Three - Boiler

The boiler is firing and making steam pressure. The pressure is rising, and the boiler is in low fire due to low load. The operator control will shut down the boiler to prevent too much steam pressure from building up. However, the operator control is not the same as the boiler steam pressure setpoint. These are commonly confused.

Boiler Cycling Considerations - Babcock & Wilcox

Minimum pegging steam pressure is normally ∼ 1.5 bar. As the boiler load increases, it is desired to have higher temperature FW, so, with a change in system load (until extraction pressure is available), the pegging steam pressure (when CRH is established, i.e., CRH pressure is sufficient) is also varied for energy efficiency.
