Abstract : This invention is related to a boiler system which is generally intended for providing steam power for propulsion of a ship, and more particularly to a boiler system which is comprised of standardized, compact modules designed for quick and easy changeout and arranged to facilitate removal and replacement of any individual module. A compact and modularized boiler is comprised of interconnected modules. Each module is removable and replaceable with an identical module for easy on site repair. The modules are separated physically and in function as a supercharger module connected to provide compressed air; a burner module connected to receive fuel and compressed air for combustion; a furnace module housing a combustion chamber for receiving hot gas from the burner module and water to be heated from a pump module; a steam drum module for separating liquid and steam; a superheater module interfaced with the furnace module for generating superheated steam; and a convection module for providing additional surface area for the transfer from the hot gas to the working liquid. The boiler is compact and modular. Patents
