Boiler Mechanical Systems and Its working Principle

Boiler Mechanical Systems are mostly useful in industries for generating steam, through which they can generate electricity. the boiler is a device generally uses to heat the liquid, which, therefore, is used to generate power. It looks like a close vessel from outside.

Working principle of Boiler Mechanical System

Water is filed in boilers, then the close vessel is heated to convert the water into steam. The steam thus causes possesses a lot of kinetic energy which is useful to rotate turbines. Hence, electricity is generated.

Boiler Mechanical Systems are divided into various classes such as:

  • Fire Tube Boiler
  • Water Tube Boiler
  • Single Tube Boilers
  • Multitubular Boiler
  • Internally Fired Boilers
  • Externally Fired Boilers
  • Vertical Boilers
  • Horizontal Boilers
  • Natural Circulation Boilers
  • Forced Circulation Boilers

The boiler is comprised of numerous component, however, some of the boiler mechanical Engineering parts include:-

  1. Burner
  2. Combustion Chamber
  3. Heat Exchanger
  4. Fuel Sources

Cleansing of the basic boiler mechanical parts is very necessary to keep its efficiency high. Moreover, this way, it would last longer too. 

Advantages and disadvantages of using a boiler mechanical systems:


  1. You can save the environment from polluting by using a boiler. The quality of indoor air is very important for the people working inside any company, and home. There might be potential employees having cardiac problems in a company, the efficiency of whom might get affected due to poor air quality. However, at home, the quality of air is further important.

A boiler does not spew air all over the place like a forced-air system — so any dust in your home stays stable rather than being taken up into the air. Not only does this mean easier breathing, but it also means less dusting

  1. Apart from lowering air pollution, it also keeps the noise pollution low. When you start a forced-air system, you would hear the noise while they expand. However, boilers work without making any noises, and therefore, you can focus on your work in silence.  
  2. This is an amazing device for you if you live in a cold country or a cold state of any country, as this would keep not only your air warm, but your floor would also have its positive impact. Therefore, unlike a forced air heater you don’t have to place your feet on a cold floor. 


  • Despite having so many qualities, there are disadvantages to using a boiler. One of the most common reasons that forced air systems are so popular is their low prices. There is quite a huge difference in their prices, however, if budget is not an issue then you can go for boilers. Moreover, there is another point that you must consider if you are thinking about the cost. Boilers consume very less energy as compared to a simple forced-air system.
  • Moreover, boiler mechanical systems use water to operate, and therefore, there are chances of leakage. 

Questions and Answers related to boilers Mechanical System:

  1.  What do you mean by a valve?

A:- An instrument in the boiler that is used to control the fluid flow.

  1. What is the use of a Piston and Cylinder?

A:-  Piston is a piece of metal fitted inside the cylinder. The piston moves inside the cylinder with the change of pressure of the fluid. Here, fluid doesn’t necessarily depict the liquid, however, even gases, and vapor can be termed as the fluid. 

  1. How to differentiate between a Bucket Piston and Plunger Piston?

A:- When a Piston experiences pressure of fluid only at one side then the best piston among all the pistons is the Plunger Piston.

However, there are valves present in the bucket piston which allows it to let the fluids pass.

  1. What Is A Buck Piston?

A: This piston has an open end, and on the other side it is made longer. The Buck piston is also known as the trunk piston.
