Solve any one question fromQ5(a,b) and Q.6(a,b)

5(a) List down and discuss the function of at least 3 mountings and 3 accessories.(6 marks) 5(b) A gas fired boiler operates at a pressure of 100 bar. The feed water temperature is 256 deg. C. Steam is produced with a dryness fraction of 0.9 and in this condition it enters a superheater. Superheated steam leaves the superheater at a temperature of 450 Deg.C. The boiler generates 1200 Tonne of steam per hour with a thermal efficiency of 92%. The gas used has calorific value of 38 MJ/m3.
