Steam locomotive - Wikipedia

A steam locomotive is a rail vehicle that provides the force to move itself and other vehicles by means of the expansion of steam.: 80 It is fuelled by burning combustible material (usually coal, oil or – now rare – wood) to heat water in the locomotive's boiler to the point when it becomes gaseous and its volume increases 1700 times. Functionally, it is a steam engine on wheels.

Boiler Efficiency - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

From Example 8.2, the existing boiler has an excess O 2 of 6% and an overall boiler thermal efficiency of about 78% (i.e., η s t d = 0.78). After the boiler tune-up, the excess O 2 is 3%. Using the monograph of Fig. 8.12, the new boiler efficiency can be determined from the flue gas temperature (343°C or 650°F) and the excess O 2 (3%).

Steam Screw Expanders. Kaishan Compressors' steam expander power plants generate power by expanding gases or steam. It uses our oil-free screw expander and can also function as a valve. As a valve, the expander drops pressure into steam pipes or adds it to the boiler. The thermal plant burns fuel such as diesel, coal, gas or biomass. Gas
