Why Steam Generators Are Better Than Steam Boilers
2011/8/26 · If we generate the same additional 25,000 lb/hr steam in a steam generator, the additional fuel input (Table 1) is about 27.2 million Btu/hr on LHV basis. Another way to look at the efficiency of both boiler types is this: The HRSG generates an additional 75,000 lb/hr of steam with a fuel input of only 75.6 million Btu/hr (subtract the fuel input at 100,000 lb/hr steam from the unfired case

2020/6/2 · Steam generators are ideal for on-demand situations. They are smaller and easier to start up compared to steam boilers and, thus, may be used as auxiliary boilers. Generators usually do not have the same maximum capacity as fuel fired boilers, so they are best for applications that require point of use dry steam.
In Figure 3, fuel is burned in a boiler to produce high pressure steam that is sent to a backpressure or extraction steam turbine. The steam turbine, similar to the prime mover in Figure 2, is connected to an electric generator. The steam then exits the turbine at a
