Description

  • The present invention relates to a method of producing steam in a gas tube steam boiler and a gas tube steam boiler.
  • In connection with such a method and apparatus it is of importance to optimise the energy transfer from the gas tubes to the water and steam in order to reduce the overall size of the boiler for a given energy output. Typically, the primary design parameters are involving the input gas temperature, the exhaust gas temperature and the desired maximum energy output, i.e. feed water temperature, steam pressure, temperature and mass flow. Preferably, the steam should be dry or even more preferred superheated.
  • From US 1,546,665 it is known to provide a gas tube steam boiler with a baffle plate providing an annular opening along the boiler wall, whereby the steam flow from the water surface is restricted to flow from the water surface to the annular opening and from there to the centrally positioned steam outlet. In this construction a major part of the generated steam will only pass the gas tubes over a distance corresponding to approximately 1/2 of the diameter of the gas tube boiler leading to insufficient heat exchange between the gas tubes and the generated steam.
  • GB114222 also shows a gas tube stream boiler.
  • In particular, but not exclusively, for marine boilers, the size of the boiler is of great importance due to limited space available, and accordingly it is an object of the present invention to provide a method and an apparatus of the type in reference that allows reduction of the space requirements of a boiler.
  • According to the invention this object is achieved by the method according to independent claim 1.
  • Hereby, the heat transfer from the gas tubes to the steam in the steam head space is significantly improved, whereby the efficiency of the boiler is increased and at the same time the produced steam has a higher quality by being dried and possibly superheated.
  • In a currently preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention said horizontal projection of said flow path is at least two times said distance. In this way the contact between the gas tubes and the flow of steam from the water surface to the steam outlet is increased, thus increasing the heat transfer in the steam head space.
  • In a currently preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention the steam outlet is located at a distance from the axis of the wall, preferably proximate to the wall of the head space, thus restricting the steam flow to flow sideways along all of the gas tubes before leaving through the steam outlet..
  • In a currently preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention the horizontal projection of the flow path extends from proximate or at a first point on said wall past said axis to proximate or at a second point on said wall opposite said first point and preferably extends back from the second point and at least partways back to said first point. In this way the steam flow is caused to move past all of the gas tubes, preferably at least two times before leaving through the steam outlet steam outlet.
  • In a currently preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention the steam flow velocity is lower when flowing from the second point towards the first point than when flowing from proximate said first point towards said second point, providing a relative high velocity, preferably approximately 15-30 m/s, more preferably 15-25 m/s over a part of the distance between the water surface and the steam outlet and to pass the gas tubes at a reduced velocity, preferably approximately 10-15 m/s over a subsequent part of the path from the water surface to the steam outlet, whereby the high velocity provides a turbulent flow around the gas tubes securing a high heat transfer and securing that possible droplets of water in the steam will hit the tubes and evaporate.
  • In a currently preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention the hot gasses for the gas tubes are provided from a combustion chamber, combusting a fuel such as oil, carbon dust, natural gas, etc., however, also hot exhaust gasses from a gas turbine or an internal combustion motor and the like may be used. When using hot gasses from a combustion chamber, said combustion chamber may be provided in contact with the water in the heat exchange compartment, in order to deliver further heating to the water directly from the combustion chamber.
  • In a second aspect the present invention relates to a gas tube steam boiler according to independent claim 10.
  • In the following the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the embodiments shown solely by way of example in the drawings, where
    • Fig. 1 schematically shows a vertical cross sectional view along A-A in a boiler in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention,
    • Fig 1a schematically shows the boiler in Fig. 1 seen from the top and indicating the lines along which the cross sectional views in Figs. 1 and 2 are taken,
    • Fig. 2 schematically shows a vertical cross sectional view along B-B perpendicular to the one in Fig. 1,
    • Fig. 3 schematically shows a perspective view of the baffle plate configuration,
    • Fig. 4-7 show four different possible configurations of the boiler steam head space.
  • The gas tube steam boiler shown in Fig. 1 comprises a heat exchange compartment 2 filled with water, said water forming a water surface 2a, and a steam head space 8 above said water surface and delimited by a cylindrical wall 1 with a substantially vertical axis 10, a top plate 4 and a diameter D. A steam outlet 6 is connected to the steam head space 8 and several gas tubes 3 extend through the heat exchange compartment 2 and the steam head space 8. Heated gas flows through the gas tubes 3 in order to generate a flow of steam from the water surface by heat exchange between the gas tubes 3 and the water in the heat exchange compartment 2.
  • In the embodiment shown in Figs. 1-3 and Fig. 5 the steam flow from the water surface is caused to flow along a conduit delimited by the baffle plates 7', 7", whereby said steam is made to flow in a direction transverse to the gas tubes 3 and all of the steam in the flow is constrained to flow between the two baffle plates 7', 7" in a horizontal direction and back between the upper baffle plate 7" and the top plate 4 in an opposite horizontal direction and out through the steam outlet 6.
  • As shown in Figs. 2 and 3 the two baffle plates 7', 7" each covers a smaller area than the cross sectional area of the steam head space 5 and the edges of the two baffle plates 7', 7" are connected to vertical plates 9 extending from the top plate 4 down to the lower baffle plate 7' in the vertical direction and in the horizontal direction all the way across between individual positions on the cylindrical wall of the steam head space 5.
  • The gas tubes 3 extend from the bottom of the boiler, possibly from a combustion chamber 14 as shown in Fig. 2 up through the water filled heat exchange compartment 2 and the steam head space 5, where the gas tubes 3 extend through the plates 7', 7" and through holes in the top plate 4, from where the gas leaves through a gas exhaust 11.
  • Heat exchange between the gas tubes and the water will produce steam entering the steam head space 5 at the water surface and the plate 7' forces the steam to move to the left as seen in Fig. 1 around a gap forming edge 12 and in between the two plates 7', 7" moving to the right as seen in Fig. 1 and around a gap forming edge 13 and moving between the plate 7' and the top plate 4 to the steam outlet 6. In this way the steam is forced to move in a direction transverse to the gas tubes 3 over a distance corresponding to approximately two times the diameter of the boiler 1. Minor leakage of steam between the openings in the plates 7', 7" and the gas tubes 3 will be no problem as the steam in these small gaps will come very close to the tube walls and be heated up here. In order to provide a sufficient heat exchange between the gas tubes and the flow of steam, more than half of all the steam in the flow in the head space is constrained to flow in a direction transverse, preferably generally orthogonal, to said gas tubes along a flow path, which when projected on a horizontal surface has a length at least equal to the diameter of the circular cylindrical wall. By this feature the present invention is distinguished over the above-mentioned US 1, 546,665 , in which less than half of the steam flows over a distance corresponding to less than 3/4 of the diameter of the circular cylindrical wall.
  • When the steam leaves the water surface it will typically contain small water droplets, which, by the forced flow across the gas tubes 3 with a relatively high flow velocity, will hit the gas tubes 3 and evaporate, and furthermore the relatively high velocity of the steam will provide a heat exchange between the steam and the gas tubes in the steam head space 5, said heat exchange is increased compared to the traditional boiler construction in which the steam simply moves from the water surface to the steam outlet in a slow flow mainly parallel to the gas tubes 3 in an open steam head space without plate 7', 7". Furthermore, the distance between the water level and the top plate can be reduced, said distance normally being relatively high in order to avoid a high concentration of water droplets in the steam leaving the steam outlet 6.
  • When the water in the boiler 1 is not boiling, the water level inside the boiler corresponds to the level measured with different traditional equipment, such as pressure difference between two known levels, water level glasses, etc. However, the actual water level seen inside the boiler will rise because of the presence of a large amount of steam bubbles inside the water area, and the water level will be fluctuating more or less, dependent on the heat load and the steam pressure. The highest water level will be around the gas tubes 3 and accordingly the gas tubes are wetted by water up to this water level, which typically is about 250 mm above the measured water level, in the following named water surface in cold condition.
  • The total height h of the steam head space 5 is subdivided into the distance h1 between the top plate 4 and the first plate 7", the distance h2 between the first plate 7" and the second plate 7', and finally the distance h3 between the second plate 7' and the water surface in cold condition.
  • In a preferred embodiment the distances h1 and h2 are dimensioned in such a way that the steam velocity between the top plate 4 and the first plate 7" is approximately 10-15 m/s and the steam velocity between the two plates 7' and 7" is approximately 20-30 m/s., i.e. the distance h1 is approximately two times the distance h2. Under all circumstances the distance h3 should be sufficient to secure that during boiling at full load, the actual water level should be approximately 200 mm below the second plate 7'.
  • In the steam head space, as described above, the flow of the steam perpendicular to the gas tubes 3 is relatively high between the two plates 7', 7", a bit lower between the top plate 4 and the plate 7" and even between the water surface and the plate 7' a certain cross flow relative to the gas tubes 3 will be present. The steam velocity provides a higher heat transfer coefficient from the gas tubes 3 to the steam compared to a traditional situation in which the steam head space 5 transmits steam at a low velocity, substantially parallel to the tubes. Actually, the heat transfer is close to the same heat transfer that exists in the water filled heat exchange compartment 2 in which water is in direct contact with the gas tubes 3.
  • The produced steam is not only free of water droplets when it leaves the boiler through the steam outlet 6, but it is actually superheated. This superheating ensures that no salts leave the boiler, resulting in that there will be no deposits in the steam pipe from the boiler to the user. Furthermore, a possible steam outlet valve after the steam outlets can be dimensioned to a higher steam velocity, which means that the size of the valve can be reduced, thus saving both space, weight and costs for said steam outlet valve. Furthermore, the total heating surface can be reduced due to increased heat transfer, which means reduced tube length, number of tubes, boiler height and thus both weight and cost price for the boiler.

  • It can be seen that the direct result of using the present invention is that approximately 40% of the tubes (approximately 240 kg) in the standard boiler design can be saved. Furthermore, the tube length and accordingly the boiler height is shortened by 520 mm, which with a boiler diameter of 1300 and a plate thickness of 12 mm provides a difference in plate weight of approximately 200 kg.
  • Above the invention has been described in connection with a preferred embodiment, however, many modifications may be envisaged without departing from the following claims. Among such modifications are the omission of the second plate 7' leading to a more simplified construction, but, however, still providing a flow of the steam through the steam head space 5 from the water surface to the steam outlet 6 in such a manner that the majority of the steam in the flow in said head space 5 is constrained to flow in a direction transverse to the gas tubes along a flow path having a length corresponding to the diameter of the boiler 1. This possibility is shown in Fig. 4, and the above described preferred embodiment is schematically shown in Fig. 5. Other possibilities not forming part of the invention as shown in Fig. 6 and Fig. 7 provide a steam flow from the water surface to the steam outlet restricted by a first plate having a central hole for passing the steam and a second plate above said first plate, said second plate providing an annular opening along the boiler wall, whereby the steam flow is restricted to flow across the gas tubes, first in a radially outward direction and following in a radially inward direction towards the centrally positioned steam outlet 6.
  • In the Fig. 7 embodiment also not forming part of the invention the steam flow is restricted to a helically flow path by means of a helically shaped plate positioned between a central tube and the outer wall of the boiler 1, said steam flow path again having a length corresponding to at least the distance between two opposite point of the wall of the boiler 1.
