Firebox Boilers

The firebox boiler uses similar tube attachment techniques as the firetube boiler. Its combustion chamber is not round, like the firetube's cylindrical furnace. The firebox boiler is typically manufactured for low-pressure steam or hot water applications. The firebox boiler is a compact, economical unit and serves as a good fit for seasonal use and when efficiency is not the driving factor. Sizes range from 12 to 337 horsepower
