27-10-2016· A boiler is called a high-pressure boiler when it operates with a steam pressure above 80 bars. The high-pressure boilers are widely used for power generation in thermal power plants. In a high-pressure boiler, if the feed-water pressure increases, the saturation temperature of water rises and the latent heat of vaporization decreases.
High-Pressure Boiler Definition High-pressure boilers will heat steam above 15 psi and water at pressures that exceed 160 psig. Temperatures in high-pressure boilers will exceed 250 degrees F. Because of the elevated pressure at which these boilers operate, they need to be monitored to ensure safety at all times.
OverviewBoilers are defined as “ Boiler is a closed vessel in which water or other liquid is heated, steam or vapor is generated, steam is super-heated, or any combination thereof, under pressure or vacuum, for use external to itself, by the direct application of energy from the combustion of fuels, from electricity or nuclear energy.

"High pressure boiler" means a boiler in which steam or other vapor is generated at a pressure of more than 15 psig, or water is heated to a temperature greater than 250°F and pressure greater than 160 psig for use external to itself. High pressure boilers include at the following:
Boilers are classified also by their pressure capacity, design type and use. Maximum allowable working pressure, or MAWP, is the highest amount of pressure that the vessel (boiler) is designed to withstand. This pressure is measured in terms of pounds per square inch or “psi,” and gauge pressure is expressed as “psig.”
