ELECTRODE STEAM BOILER
Hi-Therm's Electrode Steam Boiler series also generate steam using electricity, but using a different principle from Electric Steam Boilers. These boilers are fully automatic in operation and they come in a packaged unit with an easy-to-install design. Electrode Steam Boiler has an excellent system of automatic controls which makes it very easy to operate and extremely efficient as well as economical. It is completely fire-proof and is absolutely safe even when it runs without water, as no electric current can pass in dry condition. Further, there is no smoke or fumes that are emitted from these boilers. The packaged unit comprises the boiler, the feed-pump and the controls together with the feed-tank, all housed on a heavy MS Platform, with an Elegant finish.
Hi-Therm has manufactured, supplied and commissioned Electrode Steam Boilers for its clients in Maharashtra, as well as in other parts of India. These boilers have proven to be highly reliable for steam generation using electricity.
Some Features of Electrode Steam Boiler :
» Outside the purview of the Indian Boiler Regulations (IBR) Act
» No Inspection and Annual shut-downs
» Rapid response to steaming with full steam in under 2 minutes
» Saves labour as no trained boiler attendant is required
» No boiler house, chimney or fuel store, with minimum floor space requirement due to its compact design
» Very convenient over coal & oil-fired boilers
» No risk of fire or explosion, making it highly safe
» Boiler can be kept alongside the equipment where steam is being used
» No smoke, ash or dirt generated makes it cleaner
Standard Working Pressure of 100 PSI (Higher Working Pressures also available)
|Evaporation (approx) From & At 100 deg C in Kgs/hr||55||110||165||220||275||330|

|Heat Output (x10 k cal. Hr)||30||60||90||120||150||180|
Electrode Steam Boilers has a special, easy-to-install design and can therefore be conveniently accommodated on building rooftops, basements, stairways and in many other places, which would otherwise remain vacant. Along with this, there is also a great saving in the installation work at site, because all that is required for its operation is a connection to the electricity supply and a connection with the equipment using steam, the water supply and the drain. Also because of its absolute cleanliness, the boiler can be placed adjacent to the equipment using the steam.
Heating Principle :
The Electrode Steam Boiler differs in principle from any other method of heating water or producing steam. As we know that the passage of electricity through any resistor causes a rise in temperature within the material. The same principle is applied in the Electrode Steam Boiler wherein, the passage of electricity through water causes a rise in the temperature of water. Thus, the heat is generated within the water itself and it is not transmitted to the water using any other source of heat which is at a higher temperature. Besides, the heat generated is exactly equivalent to the electricity expanded and hence there is almost no loss or negligible loss of energy in this process.
Please note :
» Use only Soft Water. Use of hard water results in deposition of scale on the surface of the electrodes which will increase consumption of electricity.
» Use only AC Supplies. Use of DC Supplies will result in hydrogen and oxygen being liberated owing to electrolysis. A.C. supply at 10 cycles per second and above does not causes electrolysis.
