Can a steam boiler be used for heating in winter?
Boiler is an energy conversion equipment, which is a pressure vessel and one of special equipment. It is the working process of burning other fuel types, and the generated heat energy is transferred to the water in the boiler, so that the water is heated, and finally hot water, boiling water or steam is produced.
There are many types of boiler products, and they can be divided into different categories. For example, they can be divided into steam boilers, hot water boilers and boiling water boilers according to product usage; they can be divided into vertical boilers and horizontal boilers according to their size; Divided into oil-fired boilers, gas boilers and electric boilers, etc.; according to the pressure can be divided into pressure boilers and atmospheric boilers. These are subdivisions of products, and these products can also be combined with each other, such as horizontal gas-fired steam boilers, vertical oil-fired hot water boilers and so on.
Different boiler products have different functions. For example, steam boilers are mostly used for industrial production needs, while hot water boilers are mostly used for residents' daily needs. Steam boilers are used in chemical, petroleum, clothing, metallurgical and other industries, and hot water boilers are used in winter heating, bathhouse bathing and other industries.
With the advent of the cold winter, many units and communities have adopted boilers for heating, and many users are buying boiler products. For heating, they do not know how to choose a boiler, or whether to use a steam boiler or a hot water boiler. Today we will analyze whether the steam boiler can be used for heating?
For winter heating, our commonly used boiler product is a hot water boiler. Its working principle is to operate the boiler to burn fuel, transfer heat energy to the water in the boiler, heat the water, produce hot water, and then pass The connecting pipes of the boiler enable the hot water to be delivered to the rooms that need heating, and the heat is dissipated in the room through the water pipes, so that the temperature of the room rises, and finally serves the purpose of heating. This is the main process of heating in winter. Can steam boilers be used for heating? In fact, steam boilers can also be used for heating, but the heating effect and safety are not high, so they are not selected by users. Specifically Steam boiler heating has the following two disadvantages:
1, inspection and acceptance
The steam boiler is a pressure vessel and is a special equipment. Due to its working pressure, the steam boiler must go to the local quality inspection department for inspection and acceptance after following and debugging. The boiler can be operated only after the inspection and acceptance is passed. The conditions of use are relatively strict and require various procedures for approval. The process is relatively so-called.
2. Poor heating effect
The steam produced by the steam boiler is steam, and the steam is the vaporization of water, which causes the steam temperature to be higher and the temperature rises rapidly. If we are heating in winter, the temperature in the room will rise rapidly and the heating will be uneven. There will also be a dry situation, unlike a hot water boiler that gradually heats up during heating, and contains a lot of water vapor, which can moisten the room and make the temperature evenly heated.
Regarding the above situation, it is better to use hot water boilers for heating in winter. Hot water boilers can not only bathe but also heat, which best meets the needs of residents' lives, so users must choose hot water boilers when heating. .
