A boiler or steam generator is a device used to create steam by applying heat energy to water.Although the definitions are somewhat flexible, it can be said that older steam generators were commonly termed boilers and worked at low to medium pressure (7–2,000 kPa or 1–290 psi) but, at pressures above this, it is more usual to speak of a steam generator.
generator (HRSG). Unlike gas turbines or microturbines, steam turbines do not directly consume fuel. Rather, the fuel driving the process is the fired boiler or plant equipment that produces heat for the HRSG (e.g., a gas turbine). Table 1. Summary of Steam

Low-Pressure Steam Generator. The Sioux Steam-Flo ® steam generator is a perfect source of low-pressure steam for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. This unit can be used in place of a conventional boiler. These industrial steam generators produce from 370-3,450 lbs. (168-1,564 kg) per hour of saturated steam in minutes.
