  1. A fuel-burning apparatus or container for heating water, in particular

  2. A household device providing a hot-water supply or serving a central heating system

  3. A tank for generating steam under pressure in a steam engine

  4. A metal tub for washing or sterilizing clothes at a very high temperature


  1. sealed vessel where water is converted to steam
  2. kettle: a metal pot for stewing or boiling; usually has a lid
  3. A boiler is a closed vessel in which water or other fluid is heated. The heated or vaporized fluid exits the boiler for use in various processes or heating applications.
  4. Boiler is a song by the band Limp Bizkit from their third studio album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. It was released as the fifth and final single from the album.
  5. 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 , but at pressures above this it is more ...
  6. An apparatus that generates heat (usually by burning fuel) and uses it to heat circulating water (or sometimes another liquid) in a closed system that is then used for space heating, swimming pool heating, or domestic hot water or industrial processes; Less commonly, a hot water heater; A fuel ...
  7. (BOILERS) The common elements include: the furnace, the boiler, the super-heat section (if applicable), and various heat-recovery sections. ...
  8. (BOILERS) Steam generating units used aboard ship to provide steam for propulsion (and) for heating and other auxiliary purposes.
  9. To dream of seeing a boiler out of repair, signifies you will suffer from bad management or disappointment. For a woman to dream that she goes into a cellar to see about a boiler foretells that sickness and losses will surround her.
  10. a device that heats water using gas, oil or electricity.  This is the most common way to provide hot water central heating for domestic properties.
  11. A vessel or tank where heat produced from the combustion of fuels such as natural gas, fuel oil, or coal is used to generate hot water or steam for applications ranging from building space heating to electric power production or industrial process heat.
  12. A device for generating steam for power, processing, or heating purposes or for producing hot water for heating purposes or hot water supply. Heat from an external combustion source is transmitted to a fluid contained within the tubes in the boiler shell. ...
  13. a heating unit that uses water (or steam) circulated throughout the home in a system of baseboard heating units, radiators, and/or in-floor radiant tubing.
  14. A sealed tank where water is turned to steam for heating or power.
  15. A pressurized system in which water is vaporized to steam by heat transfer from fuel combustion. Steam thus generated may be used directly as a heating medium or converted to mechanical energy.
  16. The large metal drum on a steam locomotive, where the water is turned into steam.
  17. A unit based to heat water to produce steam for cooking and distillation processes.
  18. Also called a “pot,” the container in which mash is initially cooked or heated.
  19. A unit that produces hot water or steam for heating.
  20. A vessel designed to transfer heat produced by combustion or electric resistance to water. Boilers may provide hot water or steam.
  21. A series of water tubes in which water is heated under pressure to make steam, which spins the turbine, then subsequently turns the generator to produce electricity.
  22. Gas or oil fueled appliance without storage tank that heats water via heat exchanger for whole house or building space heating.
  23. This self-contained, gas-burning appliance circulates steam or hot water through pipe and radiators for heating. HSP offers energy efficient natural gas boilers from Slant/Fin and Burnham, as well as in-home boiler consultations, installation and boiler tune-ups.
  24. Two types of marine boilers existed. In the older Scottish boiler, water surrounds an internal fire-box and flame-tubes (similar to the arrangement on a steam locomotive). The flame-tubes, through which the fire's hot gasses escape, much increase the area for heat exchange. ...
  25. Hot Water or Steam Heating Unit. A Boiler can be heated with Natural Gas, LP Gas or Oil.
