How Do Electric Boilers Operate. In the operation there isn’t much difference between an electric boiler and a conventional boiler. Instead of burning
gas or diesel to create heat the electric boiler takes power from the main supply feed for the facility and uses it to heat elements within the boiler.
Water passes over these elements and is heated in the process, before being pushed by steam pressure or pumped to where it is needed. What are the
ADVANTAGES: Silent operation. They have very few moving parts and don’t burn any fuel, you won’t hear it every time they start to heat.Easy to service
and maintain. Because they have very few moving parts, they are relatively easy, and therefore cheaper to service.They can be fitted anywhere. They
don’t need a flue, so you don’t have any worries about finding an outside wall. For example you have a process that is in an interior building location.
There is also no need for any sort of fuel storage, as required by other alternatives such as LP or diesel boilers.
They are compact. Compared to most gas and diesel boiler systems, electric versions are small and neat, so even if you don’t have a lot of room to spare
in your plant they may still be installed. They are safer. Because they don’t burn any sort of solid fuel, they don’t produce any fumes or combustion
gasses like carbon monoxide. These are extremely dangerous if they leak from a traditional boiler and build up in the area. There’s no such risk with
an electric boiler.
