This review paper is comprehensive study of design and analysis of Lancashire Boiler. Now a day’s energy is very important and it should not be wasted. Lancashire Boiler is a stationary, fire tube, internally fired, horizontal and natural circulation boiler. Lancashire boilers are reliable and bear over load. However, they are bulky and initially raise steam very slowly. Many of the researcher’s has developed fire-tube boiler based on the mass, energy, and momentum balances together with constitutional equations. The performances of fire tube are effective when running with different fuels. Working pressure in Lancashire boilers are in the range of 0.7 MPa to 2 MPa and efficiency of the boiler is about 65%–70%. Today the main concern is to increase the efficiency of Lancashire boiler by enhancing the heat transfer rate in the boiler tube. Due to economic and environment demand, engineers must continuously focus on improving the efficiency of the boiler and reducing emission. Wide variety of engineering situations, including heat exchangers for viscous liquids in chemical process and food industry. Boiler reliability, safety and usability are crucial for power plants. Boilers and components in hot conditions, such as wall tubes, cylinders, valves and channels have a limited lifespan; therefore preventive condition monitoring is very important. Dye penetrant test, radiography test, stress relief test & hydro test are the basically main testing of boiler while manufacturing. These testing will give always prevent boiler bursting or any accidents regarding boiler, So these are the necessary testing for boiler.
