The old textile factory’s boiler area

The boiler has interconnected tubes for the water to circulate. The coal burning in the furnace heats the water until it turns into steam, which is propelled towards the steam engine where it is converted into mechanical power that drives all the machinery in the factory. The boilers at the Vapor Aymerich, Amat i Jover never went out, as the factory operated 24 hours a day.
