Types of boilers

There is no specific way in which you can classify a boiler but according to the little knowledge we have classified boilers into seven main classes



Classification base upon


  • Orientation of the shell
  • Utility of the boilers
  • Heating system
  • Tube content
  • Type of fuel
  • Circulation method
  • Way of heating

According to the Orientation of the shell

Base upon the orientation of the shell with respect to ground boiler can be classified into three types
  • Vertical boilers
