Poppy and the Steam Forum and Power Forum

Welcome to the steam and power forum, a bulletin board dedicated to questions and answers to Steam Plants and Power Generation Plants for steam boilers, turbine generator and heating problems. Dedicated to power plants, power generation, supercritical, and heating plants as well as steam boilers, steam turbine generators, gas turbines or combustion turbines, hrsg, steam heating, pressure vessels, steam line, including ASME questions and more. Remember the forum is made up of volunteers from experts to beginners. Unfortunately, we cannot allow free commercialism that promotes products, services, or sites.

Velocity-Super Critical Boiler

What would be the Velocity of Water in the Water Walls of Super Critical Boiler which is of Capacity 2090 Tons / Hour.

Because the boiler is supercritical, there is no drum and no circulation ratio to consider.
The flowrate in the water walls is therefore 2900 T/h.
To find the velocity you need to know the density of the water to convert to volume per hour and the tube area to allow you to find the volume per meter. You can then work out the meters per second required to pass the flow.

Good answer But if you are starting the design to size the tubes you have to start wiht a velocity. Cann you halp on this. Aleternately I suggest having a look into an existing boiler and work as suggested.

Just an idea...

In water pipes -mayhaps not actually so in supercrtitical boilers, I have absolutely no experience with them-, velocities are round 2,5 - 3,5 m/sec in order nor to increase unduly the pressure drop due to viscosity. This stands for pipes or tubes 2 up to 4 in diameter, which I think may be usual figures. For steam as for other gases, 15 up to 30 m/sec are acceptable, too high means too much pressure drop, too low means low pressure drop but increased diameter, or more tubes in parallel to pass a certain mass-flow, and increased cost as a result. Of course, as Mr. Watts suggested, density or its inverse, specific volume, must be known to evaluate mass flow rates.

Good luck

High Sulfite Residual
By: Ross. [390]

First, I want to say that large amounts of Sodium Sulfite NaSO3 becomes a contaminate because it will produce foaming and other problems, but foaming is the primary problem.

Your 500-psi Water Tube Boiler is seems to have reasonable level of residual Sodium Sulfite NaSO3 remaining in the boiler water. Nice pH too.

Your 300-psi Waste Heat Recovery Boiler has twice what I would expect for Sodium Sulfite NaSO3 at ranging 80-ppm to 100-ppm. pH is good so you are getting a good yield.
