4 Pass Firetube Boilers
Firetube boilers

 

Maximized efficiency with lower maintenance cost.

Each set of tubes that hot combustion flue gas travels through before making a turn within the boiler, is considered a "pass." A four-pass boiler design consists of four sets of horizontal tubes, with the stack outlet at the front of the vessel. A downdraft design keeps the cooler water from having an effect on the hot surfaces within the boiler. 4-pass boilers leverage natural draft operation which allows cool water to contact the hottest part of the boiler.

Generally speaking, a 4 pass boiler provides more opportunities for hot gasses to transfer heat to the water in a boiler and operate more efficiently (yielding a higher overall heat-transfer coefficient).

 

4 pass firetube boilers offer:

  • maximized heat transfer
  • minimal refractory
  • high steam/water storage
  • effective handling of wide load demands
