Furnace here mainly refers to the water tube boiler furnace for fossil fuel used in steam generating stations of modern steam power generating utilities (excludes supercritical type). The key part of a water tube boiler furnace is a boiler drum and associated tubing forming the walls of the furnace in which water is boiled into steam commonly under pressure.
Advanced furnace boiler system in electric power plant ...
Aug 03 1992 · 1. An advanced fossil fuel fired boiler system that produces steam to generate electricity which makes use of pure oxygen and liquid nitrogen to substantially enhance its performance said furnace boiler system comprising: (a) a fossil fuel fired steam generating means with gaseous oxygen input and fuel input and effluent output;
Boiler Implosion Control in Fossil Fuel Power Plants ...
Boiler Implosion Control in Fossil Fuel Power Plants. Abstract: A computer simulation using the modeling techniques outlined in a companion paper has been used to characterize and evaluate the control systems for furnace and stack implosion problems in fossil fuel power plants. The model simulations have shown that the draft control systems reduce the furnace pressure excursion significantly

super heater power plants can have a super heater and/or re-heater section in the steam generating furnace. In a fossil fuel plant after the steam is conditioned by the drying equipment inside the steam drum it is piped from the upper drum area into tubes inside an area of the furnace known as the super heater Fossil. fuel
How Power Plant Boiler Works? - Bright Hub Engineering
Jan 27 2009 · Boiler uses this principle to produce high pressure steam. Conversion of Water to Steam evolves in three stages. Heating the water from cold condition to boiling point or saturation temperature sensible heat addition. Water boils at saturation temperature to produce steam - Latent heat.addition. Heating steam from saturation temperature to higher temperature called Superheating to increase the
A conventional boiler has a furnace that burns a fossil fuel or in some installations waste fuels. A nuclear reactor can also serve as a source of heat for generating steam under pressure. Boilers were built as early as the 1st century ad by Hero of Alexandria but were used only as toys. Not until the 17th century was serious consideration given to the potential of steam power for practical work.
