Simple Guide to the Different Boiler Fuel Types
Languages: English, Portuguese, Polish, Russian. In order for a boiler to convert water to steam, a fuel source must release its energy in the form of combustion in the boiler furnace. Fuel systems play a critical role in the performance of a boiler. The most commonly used fuels in power boilers are natural gas, fuel oil, coal, and wood (biomass). Each of these fuels have different physical properties that require delivery systems that are unique to that fuel.
All boilers have a furnace or combustion chamber where fuel is burnt to release its energy. Air is supplied to the boiler furnace to enable combustion of the fuel to take place. A large surface area between the combustion chamber and the water enables the energy of combustion, in the form of heat, to be

System Vents Fuel oil heaters, strainers and lines are provided with vent cocks or valves on oil and steam sides to get rid of air locks while charging system.
Underfeed stoking systems which have less underfire air control, burn some fuel in suspension. Other systems blow the fuel into the boiler and burn most fuel in suspension. Once the fuel particles are in suspension they can carry over into the boiler section, reducing the efficiency of the heat transfer in the boiler, increasing tube cleaning maintenance requirements and causing wear on the tubes.
