Boiler and Economiser Operations

saVRee 1 hour and 19 minutes

Boilers are used to supply hot water or steam. A boiler supplying hot water is technically not a boiler, as the water is below its boiling point. Despite this, hot water heaters are colloquially referred to as boilers. Irrespective of if a boiler is providing hot water or steam, the purpose of a boiler is to supply heat that can be used to complete a desired purpose.

In this course, we will cover an introduction to boilers and then speak in detail about the fire and water tube boilers, electrical boilers and how deaerators work.
