The boiler uses highly purified water in enclosed tubes and boils it to make steam.

To do this, ground coal is blown into the bottom of the boiler and ignited, creating a fireball.

The intense heat from this fireball causes the water running through the tubes in the boiler to turn into steam, which is collected in a steam drum at the top of the boiler.

The steam is then passed through another set of tubes in the boiler where it is superheated to extremely high temperatures.

This high pressure, high temperature steam is then piped to the turbine.

We are located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Museum. Travel 5 miles west of Leduc on Highway 39. Go north on Range Road 260 (Cohne Dale Road) for about 800 metres and the museum will be on your right. The LWAS Annual Exposition on July 22 & 23 was a great success and now we look forward to the Fall Harvest on September 9 & 10, with public tours, exhibits and the Tractor Pull Provincial Finals event. The final music performance of the season will feature “Celtera” and as their name implies is steeped in the music from the Emerald Isle and Scotland. Finally, on September 15 & 16, the Lesco Pro Truck Show n' Shine arrives at Leduc West. Although our museum will only be open on the 16th, please come out and see the trucks on both days!
