The Independent Dome Top Boiler

The Independent Dome Boiler

The Independent dome top boiler was introduced by the firm prior to 1882 and as the name suggests, it did not necessarily need constructional fixing. Standing on its end, assuming that it stood on a non-inflammable floor there was no need for brickwork or masonry work. The boiler had a dome waterway, although with no bottom waterway; with the flow socket at the top there was no risk of steam being generated. There were 15 models in the range, with a recommended entry point of 300ft. of 2in. pipe.
