The LaMont steam boilers forced water circulation and the
tubes of small diameter gives enormous freedom as far as the design of the
heating surfaces concern.
With its features of positive circulation, compactness, light weight,
suitability for high pressure and temperature, and adaptability to limited
space conditions, the Controlled Circulation can offer
important advantages for advanced-designed marine boilers.
The LaMont boiler is a once-through or
semi-flash boiler in which the boiler water is circulated by means of a pump
through long closely spaced tubes of small diameter. The tubes end in a steam
separating drum where the emulsion of steam and water separates. The LaMont
boilers require powerful pumps for the forced circulation of the boiler
