Side elevation of an HRT boiler,
boiler set in brick work for support.

From the furnace the hot gas pass under the boiler,
and then return via the tubes to the front of the boiler.

Front elevation of and cross section of a HRT boiler.

The HRT type boiler was very common,
in ore mills and industry for a number of years.

Gerold ET Al

Hopefully the plans will give you an idea of an HRT boiler.
The front plan is 1/4" to the foot, figure posed is O scale.

Other then helping my Dad,
do a tube plugging on a package HRT when I was 14,
I've not had much experience with them.

Although I have worked with boilers,
ranging from 10,000#/HR fire tube locomotive type,
to 750,000 #/HR water tube.

But I was much younger then.  :)  :)

Ken, thanks.

I have seen such boilers, but did not know what's inside !

Now I understand better.

Here's one set in Yankee Blade, NV at the Ward Shaft.

Very common.

Steven

Have never came across an HRT boiler that used rock for it's casing.
 
Certainly different then the typical brick work with the ones I have seen.

1860s, maybe '70s.
It was the material at hand.

Yankee Blade was very isolated at the time.
They would have had to build a brick kiln.

I loved it too, that's why I took the image.
It is very modelable.

Another side view which shows the chimney connection better.

Heats it from the bottom,
then the hot gases flow back from the far end and out the front.


Looks like there would be some steel doors,
on another wagon load.


I can only imagine how they got the boiler off the wagon at the delivery point.
Likely no cranes were rented and just rolled in for the day !

Probably a lot of cribbing and manual jacks.
