Boiler

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 a mile and the museum will be on your right. The museum is closed for the winter, however we are looking forward to opening our doors on May 27 for the Leduc West Antique Society Spring Swap Meet, Tractor Pull & Music Series. Featured will be all manner of vendor tables, displays, tours, and the first Tractor Pull of the season. In the evening the first concert of the Music Series will feature "Prairie Sky" on stage.
July 22 & 23 is the LWAS Annual Exposition, the biggest event of the year which will include public tours, exhibits, a parade of antique vehicles, and a Tractor Pull; on Saturday evening the Music Series will feature "The Jivin' Belles" performing songs heavily influenced by close harmony groups of the 40's like the Andrews Sisters.
September 9 & 10, the final event of the summer season is the Fall Harvest event… 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.
