Boiler

The boiler, or more precisely, the steam generator is where water is turned into steam. Pulverised coal or oil is injected into a combustion chamber where it is burnt to create heat. Inside the combustion chamber, a network of pipes carry water which absorb the heat, boiling the water and turning it into steam. The water expands as it turns into steam, creating a very high pressure, ready to be used to rotate the blades inside the turbines.
