Small capacity firetube boiler advantages

1.From a maintenance standpoint, firetube boilers are typically have lower operating costs comparable to a similarly sized watertube boiler.

2.Firetube boilers have easy access to the boiler’s firesides and tubes can easily be replaced without additional repair of the boiler.

3.Although firetube boilers are smaller in design, they have a larger water volume than similar size watertube boilers, causing them to take longer to bring up to operating temperature from a cold start.

4.Once a firetube boiler is started up and is operating at its desired pressure, a firetube boiler can handle a sudden upward load surge better than a watertube boiler because of the large steam disengaging area.
