    Default Corner tube boiler / calderas

    Hola/hi,

    I´m translating into spanish and the text says........"Corner Tube Boiler".

    I don't know if there is an exact word but translating it would be something like

    caldera de tubo acodado

    hope it helps!

    Hi loalanma, If you are referring to a water heater this is another possible option. "CALENTADOR DE AGUA CON TUBO ESQUINERO"

    hpe it helps

    I think boiler applies to a certain type of container where the water is not only heated, it is converted to steam, so I don't think it can be translated as "calentador de agua".
    The word itself refers to the process of boiling...don't you agree?

    You’re right Sandra. I guess when I saw the word boiler the picture that came to my mind was some kind of kettle, which in Venezuela we call “tetera”. Yet, I do not like the idea of limiting such device for tea; since water can be boiled for many purposes, so I used the term “calentador de agua”. But you are absolutely right in pointing out that a boiler is more than that. Thanks for your observation.

    Kind regards
