Knowing More About Using Boilers to Produce and Distribute Heat

By Jasmin Shakespeare Subscribe to RSS | February 6th 2012 | Views:

The universe is a vast space that contains exclusive physical systems. A physical system, also called thermodynamic system, makes it possible for heat, matter, work, and their exchanges to maintain, create, or diminish energy. The space engulfing the system, called surroundings or environment, may also affect the exchanges of elements in the system. Any machine or equipment is a good example of a thermodynamic system. Exchanges of elements take place to create a desired outcome.

The boiler is a machine that best applies the mechanisms of thermodynamics. Its main function is to boil water and use it to disperse heat throughout the system. It needs combustion or any heat source adequate to deliver the required heat to meet the system's demand. The machine itself or the elements in it do not directly comprise the system but the properties of those elements that make the exchanges attainable. For example, the differences in water temperature when going through tubes affect the functionality of a boiler.

The total energy being distributed and shared throughout the system is called enthalpy. Because of the existence of the environment, not all the enthalpy in a system can be utilized. A substantial part of it is wasted. To enhance the effectiveness of a system, such as the boiler, enthalpy must be preserved. In a boiler, performance is measured by the volume of water heated with respect to the quantity of fuel at a certain timeframe. If the heat formed through combustion boils the water filled in the boiler longer than the expected time, then the system is weak.

For that reason, the only way to strengthen the functionality in a boiler is to speed up heating the same volume of water using the equal amount of fuel. At first, it looks unattainable since a rise in heat is expected without changing the properties of any element present in the system. Unless an additional element is utilized, there is no chance of changing any rate. This is the reason why boiler designs today already consist of a heat reclaimer or economizer.

An economizer in boiler is not essentially a foreign element which comes from the environment of a boiler system. It is an extra component that works to preheat water before being replenished in the boiler. That way, the water is partially or already substantially heated before being actually heated in the boiler, thereby lowering fuel consumption.

A Boiler economizer does not use heat from the environment. It captures the wasted steam and applies its enthalpy to preheat the water. Such a device reduces fuel consumption and waste production.
