Steam boilers play a vital role in manufacturing and processing industries, both for heating and for processing. Maintaining boiler systems, despite the fact that steam boilers are vital to industry, is a challenging and important task for plant managers. Steam boiler repairs are often plagued by boiler leaks. It is important to never ignore a boiler leak as it could lead to serious consequences, such as corrosion. Winter is the season when boiler leaks are most common. The steam boiler has failed. The water in steam boilers and pipes will freeze if the temperature falls below freezing. Condensate pipes, which drain the residual steam and condensate out of the steam boiler, may also freeze. This will prevent the boiler from working properly.

First Boiler invented

Early boilers were said to exist as far back as the first century AD. A cauldron of this kind is a mere toy. In the 17th century the production of boilers began seriously, as the application of steam to everyday life was becoming increasingly important.

In England, wrought iron steam boilers continued to be used and produced until the 18th Century. As the benefits of high temperature and pressure became more apparent, boilermakers began to use steel. Alloy steel is used in advanced steam boilers, which can withstand high temperatures and pressures.

Steven Wilcox, George Babcock, and their company Steam Boiler were the first boiler manufacturers in the history of steam-boiler manufacturers. The two were the first to develop a steam boiler with pipes within a structure made of refractory bricks.

Thermax offers coil type steam boilers in the range of 50 to 850 kg steam per hour. The coil type boiler generates steam instantly and is extremely easy to install and commission. These boilers are safe, reliable and designed to operate on a wide range of liquid and gaseous fuels including heavy oil, light oil, gas, and dual fuel options.
