Steam Culture: Electricity and Geothermal

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Dec 22, 2015 2:52:08 PM

Today, Brent talks about making electricity with steam. We use steam for many things including lighting our Christmas trees. Recently, we discussed underground steam extraction, but this time, Brent shows us how to extract it by a process called Geothermal. With this process, heat is extracted below earth's surface and uses it above the surface. And it all starts with Lava.

Boiler Tuning: Striking the Perfect Air/Fuel Mixture

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Dec 16, 2015 1:02:51 PM

You need three things to make a flame, fuel, oxygen and ignition. If you have ever made a potato cannon you understand this lesson well. Too much air in the combustion chamber and your spud doesn’t launch with the pizzaz you expect, too much fuel, well, bad things can happen (boom). Side note: I’ve found that White Rain hairspray makes the best fuel source. To achieve the best launch, you have to strike the perfect balance between fuel and air in the chamber. The same is also true with steam boilers. In order to achieve optimum efficiency, your boiler has to be tuned with the proper air/fuel mixture.

Wrap It Up!

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Dec 15, 2015 1:54:31 PM

As fall spends the last of the heat that summer left behind, we enter that time of year so many facility maintenance personnel dread: the heating season. Losing heat in a building not only poses a problem for the occupants—it can also cause extensive damages to flowing water infrastructure, such as pipes, valves, storage tanks, and even boilers. It is common knowledge that water turns to ice when exposed to freezing temperature; the resulting expansion can delay bringing the system back online as water cannot flow through the ice. Alternatively, pipes, valves, etc. can break and require total replacement. When you consider water freezing inside a boiler, the damage could quickly become extremely expensive.

Today’s Lesson in Physics: The relationship between steam pressure and temperature

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Dec 15, 2015 1:28:24 PM

When water molecules heat up, they attain kinetic energy. The more they are heated, molecules eventually reach velocities great enough to break the surface of the water and become steam.
