Lancashire Boiler

Locomotive Boiler

High evaporating capacity Capable of meeting fluctuating loads Portability Compact Low installation cost Possible leakage at joints Sediments cause corrosion and scale formation Difficult to clean Large flat surfaces need bracing Cannot carry high overloads due to overheating Constructional limits for pressure and capacity

Locomotive Boiler

Babcock and Wilcox Boiler

Generate Steam at high pressure and rate is high (40 bar and 40000kg/hr)
For given output it occupies less space Parts are accessible for cleaning, inspection and repair Parts of coiler can be separated and transported easily Fuel is completely burnt due to large heating surface

Pure feed water required

Cost is high Not portable
