This Steam Plant provides a source of steam
power suitable for driving the Beam Type A and the Watt's Engines.
The steam output from the boiler can be regulated by means of a simple screw
The Beam Type A in combination with this new
Steam Plant is the replacement for our popular Beam Type S.
It uses solid fuel tablets in the Burner Tray
to heat the water,
The Steam Plant kit is easier to assemble
than the previous Steam Plant that came with the Beam Type S. The stainless
steel stand is Laser cut to shape and requires no cutting or drilling to
construct. It just needs folding and bolting together.
To complete the assembly, you will need to
drill two 3mm holes in each of the Boiler Bands, one 1/8" and one 3/8"
hole in the Boiler Tube and one 3/8" hole in one of the Boiler End Caps.
The two End Caps then need soldering (with soft solder) into the Boiler
Soldering two collets and one piece of 1/8" brass tube into the Boiler
Assembly completes the metalwork required.
For those of you who do not wish to solder
the Boiler together we are offering a pre-soldered option which means that
all that you need to do to assemble the kit is to fold the base to shape and
screw everything together.
Final decoration is up to you. You can if you
wish, paint the stand and chimney assembly as in the picture or just paint
the chimney assembly.
The hardwood plinth is the same size ( 160mm x 65mm x 28mm) as the Beam Type
A plinth so the two fit together.
The overall height of the assembled model is
