With the Franco-Crosti system a traditional locomotive boiler is supported by a second boiler.
This boiler pre-heats the feed-water using exhaust gas flow thus is an exhaust flue pre-heater.
The idea here was to achieve a 20% saving on coal consumption.
The appearance of the two flat smokestacks on either side of the boiler is quite remarkable.
This pre-heater was rather prone to corrosion and despite better efficiencies, the costs once more ran out of control.
