A Scotch Marine boiler is a type of fire-tube boiler, which passes burning gases through tubes running through a sealed tank of water. Heat transfers through the walls of the tubes, boiling the water to create steam. These boilers were typically manufactured to utilize either coal, oil, or natural gas as fuel. The steam produced would be used for manufacturing processes, or to heat a building.
This boiler is entirely self-contained, and can be mounted on skids (not included) therefore it can be moved easily. The firebox is a large cylindrical flue, extending the entire length of boiler, completely surrounded by water. The grates are in the front end of the firebox with a bridge wall at back end of grates, and combustion chamber at rear end. These boilers were built according to A.S.M.E. code and were regularly constructed for 100lbs working pressure. Boilers came with a plug hat dome as regular equipment.
Imagine your layout with one or more of these boilers on a flatcar headed from your boiler-manufacturing plant to an industrial (or governmental) customer facility.
