HVAC Boiler/Furnace Systems

What is a Boiler/Furnace System?

Industrial boilers are systems designed to produce steam in varying quantities for a variety of applications including space heating, process heating, sanitation, power generation and others.

There are two general styles of boiler systems that are used for steam production; namely fire-tube and water-tube. Both types of boilers can produce steam, super-heated steam or hot water (also known as a hydronic boiler).

  • Fire-tube boilers are generally used for lower volume steam generation and are typically best suited for applications such as space & process heating

  • A water-tube boiler is better suited for high steam output applications such as power generation.


Measurement devices for Industrial Boiler System

Industrial boiler systems require a careful balance of inputs and outputs to operate safely, reliably and efficiently. Fuel feed, air intake, feed water, steam output and flu gases are only a few of the critical measurements that are required, and Siemens process instruments are designed to handle them all.
