Steam boilers are pressure vessels that convert water to hot steam through a combustion reaction between fuel and air which ignites a flame into tubes submerged into water. The heat contained in the steam is piped throughout your building for the heating purpose you require.
There are two main steam boiler configurations:
- Closed systems: no water is lost from the system and all steam is recycled back into your boiler through a condensate return line
- Open system: some steam is able to escape the system, and new water fed back into the system
Steam boilers are excellent cost-effective solutions to providing heat. Tubman Heating can help you select and then source a steam boiler to suit your exact needs. Look below at the various options Tubman Heating can source and supply.
