The Cochrane Composite Boiler
Composite Boiler In response to this energy requirement, Cochrane Engineering, the largest boiler and pressure vessel manufacturers in Zimbabwe, undertook a study of the various established fuel burning and heat transfer systems available. This study revealed that a steam boiler plant incorporating the water tube boiler type furnace, with a shell type convective heat section, would offer great advantages in economy of construction, efficient fuel utilization and high pressure design. These features make it possible to run back-pressure or pass-out type steam turbines, and this permits combined cycle operations for the simultaneous production of electrical power and process steam for heating.
The COMPOSITE Boiler designed and built by COCHRANE ENGINEERING, completely fulfils these requirements.
The COMPOSITE Boiler is offered in a range of sizes as set out below:
STEAM OUTPUT: 5 tonnes/hr to 25 tonnes/hr
PRESSURES: Std. 1 035 kPa. Maximum 3 200 kPa
SUPER HEAT if required Saturation temperature plus 50 C standard: higher super heat temperature can be offered for specific requirements.
FUELS Woodbark, sawdust. Husks: cotton seed, sunflower, wheat. Stalk fibre: bagasse, maize, coconut,
Also : Traditional fuels – coal, lignite, anthracite, oil and gas.
