What is the difference between a calorifier and a steam generator?
A calorifier produces hot water, not steam, whilst a steam generator obviously produces steam
The water heater has an electric heating element that is responsible to make the water hot if submerged to water. While the Calorifier is composed of steam coil where the steam from boiler passes through, is responsible to make the water hot if it get contact to the steam coil.
boiler use many type of working fluids like water, mercury, liquid sodium, etc., but steam generator works only with water as working fluid. hence all steam generator are boilers but all boilers are not steam generators...
It takes pressurized steam to move the Pistons in a steam train. It takes a generator to produce electricity to power the motors on his (trucks) wheels on an electric train.
The primary difference between a pressurized water reactor (PWR) and a boiling water reactor (BWR) is that in the BWR, water is actually boiled, and the steam is used to drive a steam turbine, while in the PWR, the primary coolant is not allowed to boil, but is circulated in a closed loop to boil water in a steam generator. The BWR circulates primary coolant through the steam turbine in a closed loop. The PWR… Read More
In a way. It is the difference between temperatures at the inlet and outlet of the steam turbine (generically, a 'heat engine') which results in the turbine spinning -this, in turn, causes the generator to spin.
calorifier contains the number of coils through which steam flows. Steam from steam boiler goes to kitchen,laundry and for calorifier.Around these steam coils,water is flowing which needs to be heated. as u know temp of steam would be more than 100 deg,it heats the water which comes in contact with these coils . in most of the calorifiers,a set point mechanism is fitted which cuts the flow of steam whenrequired temp of water has attained
Both temperatures are related to the saturation temperature in the steam drum of a heat recovery steam generator. The approach temperature is the water temperature at the economizer outlet, which in many analyses is assumed to be equal to the saturation temperature for simplicity. The "pinch point temperature difference" is the difference between the saturation temperature and the gas temperature at the economizer inlet.
The source of the thermal energy is obviously completely different, but the steam side, turbo-generator, etc is very similar.
You say a steam generator. The equipment is actually a steam driven turbine coupled to a generator. Steam from the thermal source, either fossil fired or nuclear, drives the turbine which is mechanically coupled to the generator which produces the electrical output
The steam turbine is that turbine which can opreat with steam and the water turbine is that turbine which can opearat with water but the main difference between each other that is the difference of construction and matiel of turbine
The main difference between a diesel and a steam engine is the diesel engine is an internal combustion and the steam engine is external combustion.
water is a liquid, steam is a gas
the electric steam dryer has steam...
steam powers a turbine which drives a generator to produce electrical power
the turbine converts wind, water, steam, etc. sources of energy to rotational motion the generator converts rotational motion to electricity
The only difference between the European Steam Table and an American Steam Table is the plug that plugs into the wall. If you want to plug in an American Steam Table while you are in Europe, you will need an adapter. http://DirectBuyRestaurantSupply.com
The steam generator was one of the most important invention in history. This invention turns high steam or water vapor into energy by using a generator.
a steam boat is on the water and a train is on railroad tracks
The nuclear reactor produces heat which is used to raise steam to feed a steam turbine/generator set
the difference is that water vapour is just one particle that joins together with more and more to form steam
There technically is no difference, but steam is more visible and is said to be hotter than the water vapor we inhale. But once the steam cools down it is water vapor.
Yes,the mechanical energy of steam can turn the shaft of a generator thru the steam turbine in which the steam acts on its blade to produce rotational motion to transform mechanical energy. Yes, the mechanical energy of steam can turn the shaft of a generator thru steam turbine as the driver, because the steam will acts on the tubine blade to produce rotational motion to transform mechanical energy and elctrical energy as well.
The steam is used to drive the steam turbine that drives the main generator
Motors and generators are energy converters. A motor converts energy into motion energy (mainly rotation). The energy can be electrical current, fuel, steam, etc. A generator converts motion energy mainly into electical power. The rotation of the generator (motion enery) can be caused by wind enery, water power or combustion motors.
What is the difference between the way a fossil fuel power plant generates electricity and the way a nuclear power plant generates electricity?
As far as the generation side goes, it is identical, a steam turbine driving a generator locked in synchronism to the electrical grid system
no - steam is water - water is good.
eat frogs and leaves
These are same
Most use the gas to burn and create steam. The steam drives a steam turbine that runs a generator. It can also be used to fuel a jet engine that drives a generator.
A 'turbine' is an example of a prime mover, the device which drives a generator. Turbines may be driven by steam, gas, or by water. A 'generator' is a device which converts kinetic energy into electrical energy.
Divide heat added to the boiler between feedwater inlet and steam outlet by the kilowatt output of the generator at the generator terminals. Rate expressed in btu. See article.
To drive a steam turbine which is coupled to an electrical generator
The steam is forced through a turbine, which rotates a generator
Mechanical work is generated by the expansion of steam.
Mist is made when it is cold and steam is made water gets hot
When steam is converted into energy, via steam pushing a turbine, turning a generator, making electricity.
What type of locomotive pulls it.
The boiler heats water into steam. The steam is pressurized and fed into a turbine which causes it to rotate. As the steam turbine rotates, the connected generator rotates and produces electricity. Make Sense??? Please 'Recommend Contributor'
Heat from a controlled nuclear reaction heats water into steam. The steam turns a turbine, which is attached to a generator. The generator then makes electricity.
A steam generator iron is more time efficient than a traditional iron. It could reduce the time needed for ironing with 50%. However, many people who are used to traditional irons might prefer those above the steam generator irons.
The difference is that geysers are way much hotter than the steam from hot springs. The geysers can give you 3rd degree burns. But so can the steam from hot springs if you're in there to long.
A turbine is powered by such things as steam, burning gas or oil, water, or wind. The turbine is a type of engine, which might be thought of as a more efficient choice than a gas engine or reciprocating steam engine for doing the same job. The turbine could do many things ranging from powering a vehicle such as a helicopter, a ship, a locomotive, or a piece of equipment such as a centrifuge, a… Read More
To drive a steam turbine which is coupled to an electric generator
Steam turbines convert steam, no matter how the steam is produced, into rotational energy. This can be connected to a generator to produce electricity for instance.
The steam turbine blades to turn creates steam. The steam engine, steam piston Myllng after the turn brings. +++ They are both steam-engines. The turbine is purely rotative; the reciprocating steam-engine uses cylinders and pistons.
u give me not a suitable ans of it.
Mist and steam look very alike but there is a difference: mist is formed when when the air is too cold to hold its moisture, while steam is formed when water is heated beyond its boiling point (100 degrees Celcius).
Yes. Steam is produced in a steam generator (boiler), used to power an engine (or turbine), condensed, and returned to the boiler as feedwater.
