Advantages and Disadvantages of La Mont Boiler

Advantages and Disadvantages of La Mont Boiler Points : Advantages and Disadvantages of La Mont Boiler Advantages
  1. The boiler can produce steam up to a pressure of 150 bars and the generation rate of steam ranges as of 30000 to 45000 kg per hour.
  2. Large firebox allows for 45-50% of all heat transfer to be absorbed in fire box by radiation.
  3. Balanced radiant/convective superheater gives balanced output temperature under all load conditions and precludes the require of a normalizer system.
  4. Very high heat transfer rates safely available.
  5. Starting of Lamont boiler is fast.
Disadvantages
  1. Requires a small vertical external drum and power to drive a small recirculating pump by high pressure pump seals.
  2. Insufficient design and faulty fabrication of hand hole caps (cleaning purpose) resulted in greatly leakage.
  3. Bubbles are produced at inner face of heating tube. Because of which it reduces heat transfer rate.
