Boiler Steam Drum
January 13, 2021
The boiler steam drum is the most important pressure vessel in industrial boilers for storing hot water and steam. In an industrial boiler pipe system, not all hot water can be fully evaporated into steam, but rather, a mixture of steam and hot water. Because saturated hot water needs more heat for conversion into steam, a boiler steam drum is a required piece of equipment. The steam drum separates hot water and steam, where the mixture still flows back for reheating through a down comer.
