Design And Analysis Of Fire Tube Boiler With Heat Flow Analysis

[Full Text]



S. Gopalakrishnan, M. Makesh



Boiler heat flow analysis, Fire tube Boiler.



Boilers are used to generate steam that provides heat or power. Water is converted to steam in the boiler. This steam travels through the heating apparatus which any piece of equipment that requires steam for operation. In fire tube boilers, the combustion gases travel within the tubes to heat the surrounding water. In water tube boilers, on the other hand, the water travels inside the tubes and the heat on the outside. The objective of this project work is to improve the heat transfer rate of Fire tube boiler using various materials. The following materials are considered for designing fire tube of boiler such as Copper, Aluminium, Chromium. The model of fire tube boiler is modeled through CREO software. The Three different models are create with same shape and size but different such as copper, aluminum and chromium. The models made up of different material are numerically analyzed for its various thermal behaviors through the analyzing software ANSYS from analysis we obtained different temperature and heat flux for all three materials respectively. The three analysis shows copper performance is more effective than aluminum and chromium.
