Eckrohr Boiler, Corner Tube Boiler, is a boiler for all kinds
of fuel. Originally it got its name because it has downcomers in the four
corners. It is a natural water circulation single drum boiler and it needs no
Downcomers, headers and waterwalls are welded together to a gas-tight tube
The Eckrohr Steam Boiler is self-supporting and needs no supporting structure. It stands on its own downcomers.
Due to the cage structure with downcomers, headers and overhead pipes the Eckrohr Steam Boiler is earthquake safe.
The new Eckrohr marine steam boiler
This Corner Tube Marine Boilers are designed to be installed on tankers, which
are used as utilities providing station for offshore platforms.
The Corner Tube Boiler is a natural circulation boiler and they are available
as auxiliary boilers operating on oil or waste heat from the diesel engine. The
weight of Corner Tube Marine Boiler is significantly low. The support structure
on the ship is simple. The Corner Tube Marine Boiler configuration is
particularly suited for marine duty as the water circulation is tolerant of
high roll angles and will maintain safe water circulation at high inclination
angles. In the steam overflow system a preseparation of water and steam takes
place. The steam dryness is very high. High steam purity can be achieved also
with poor feed water quality. The corner tube boilers distinguish themselves by
a robust and clear design best fitted for the demands of power stations or
industrial applications. Corner Tube boilers are designed and built for low
maintenance and high reliability.
ERK, Eckrohrkessel means Corner Tube Boiler.
