Experimental Study to Enhance the Performance of Heat Transfer in Fire Tube Boilers

Dr. Basima Salman Khalaf


This paper deals with experimental study which is a fixed the corrugated strip plate inside fire box tube (furnace duct), in order to enhanced the performance of heat transfer between the hot gases inside tubes and water outside the tube.As well as to prevent furnace walls by making the combustion hot gases is homogenous hot gases inside the furnace which is cases the high thermal stress. Upon the furnace wall. The results of experimental work gives good indications, this agreement enhance the heat transfer gives long life time and reduce the madding cost of the boiler.
