Hmm, could be. It does have a little smoke pipe, though.

It was used in big plants like BASF in areas with high risk of explosife. (Atex zones) wherea steam engine with fire place is a to high risk for egniting an explosife atmosphere
The drum was filled with high pressure steam on the black flange that you can see at the front side.
It does not have a high range, but will do the work on a factory site
