Coal fired steam boilers have been traditionally used in the textile industry for a variety of purposes, including:
Providing heat for drying: Textiles need to be dried at various stages of production, such as after dyeing and finishing. Coal-fired boilers can generate the large amounts of heat needed for this process.

Providing power for machinery: Some textile machines, such as looms, require steam power to operate. Coal-fired boilers can generate the steam needed to power these machines.

Setting textile dyes: Some dyes require high temperatures to set properly. Coal-fired boilers can generate the heat needed for this process.
However, the use of coal-fired steam boilers in the textile industry is declining due to a number of reasons, including:
Environmental concerns: Coal is a major source of air pollution, and coal-fired boilers emit greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
Cost concerns: The cost of coal has been rising in recent years, making coal-fired boilers less economical to operate.
Technological advancements: More efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives to coal-fired boilers are becoming available, such as natural gas-fired boilers and biomass boilers.
As a result, many textile companies are switching to alternative sources of heat and power. However, coal-fired steam boilers are still used in some parts of the world, particularly in countries where coal is cheap and abundant.
