Hyde Pulp Mill
Boiler House

One of the original buildings that still stands at the Hyde Pulp Mill is the simple boiler house. Here a water-tube boiler provides the steam heat needed to cook the chips. And steam is used for heating and for operating some auxiliary equipment.

When installed in the Hyde Pulp Mill complex, the fire will be fed from the chips that cannot be used in the pulping process. A four-inch pipe will deliver these chips from the main Hyde building with the help of a small amount of air pressure. Water is received from an underground pipe from the pump house and, in case of emergencies if the pump goes out, gravity feed from the water tank on top of the main Hyde building.

The kit has laser-cut wood components and the model features positionable doors & window. The approximate footprint is 20' x 26'. Detail castings in brass, white metal, and resin are included.
