Introduction to steam theories in marine boilers is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the application of high-pressure boilers to run the main propulsion turbines. Learn about how the demise of high-pressure boilers occurs due to the new combined-cycle plants utilizing the flexibility of diesel and steam plants. The application of the steam theories, the heat transfer, properties of the fluid, as well as the steam engine thermodynamic cycle, the main boilers feature and the principles of boiler design will also be covered in this course. The course will also introduce you to the technical terms that are used in connection with the steam generation, the components and properties of the fluid, the combination of the important modes of heat transfer. The course will discuss the advantages of the steam plant that must be recognized to get a true perspective of steam’s place in power generation. The principles of steam generation, the features of the boiler design, classification of the water boiler, as well as the further classification of the boiler types and the popular boilermakers will be covered in this course.
This course then explains how the marine boiler is optimized for producing steam,the applications of a water tube boiler, the theory of heat transfer in a water tube boiler. The course will teach you about the advantages of water tube boilers over smoke tube boilers, as well as the steam drum internals. You will learn about the characteristics of the D-type boilers, the function of various components in the boiler, and the D-type water tube boiler. You will learn about the working principle of the double evaporation boiler AALBORG and the boiler design data. This course will teach you about the foster wheeler D-4 type boiler, the water tube boiler and the screen tubes. This course then examines the main differences in construction and operation between different boilers, the breakdown of the steam temperature control system. Along with the characteristics of the subcritical and supercritical power plants, as well as the working principle of the main steam stop valve, and the feed check valve. The course explains the operation of the boiler mountings, the feed regulatory system that can be used in steam boilers of a low system, alongside the operational principle and movement of the float.
Furthermore, this course will help you get familiar with the differences between the subcritical and supercritical power plants, as well as the types of once-through boilers. You will also learn about the characteristics of the D-type boilers, the function of various components in the boiler, boiler mountings. Along with learning about the characteristics of the main steam stop valve, and the feed check valve. This course will improve your understanding of the feed regulatory system that can be used in steam boilers of a low system, and how to monitor the movement of the float. The examples of a float control application, the element of water level control system in high-pressure systems, including the important terms of the safety valve, and relief valves will be covered in this course. This introduction to steam theory course will help improve your knowledge of the maintenance of the safety valves, the procedure to set a safety valve of improved high-lift type. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in the boilers in the marine industry.
