Encyclopedia > Steamroller (pipe)
A common glass steamroller.

A steamroller (also called zoom tube) is a term used by smokers of cannabis to describe a type of pipe that consists of a hollow tube with both ends open, and a bowl on one side near one end. It is presumably called this because of its resemblance to the front wheel of the piece of machinery. A steamroller is used by filling the bowl with cannabis, putting one's hand over the end of the pipe nearest the bowl, putting the other end in one's mouth, lighting and inhaling until the chamber is filled with smoke, and then removing one's hand from the end and quickly inhaling the collected smoke.

The boiler of a macadam, or three-wheel, steamroller consists of the firebox (shown at the left in the accompanying illustration), the barrel, and the smokebox (depicted at the right).
Steam in the exhaust from the engine comes through a pipe elbow near the base of the smokestack and is directed upward to increase the draft.
The temperature of the steam in a working steamroller is approximately 328 degrees Fahrenheit; at that temperature, the steam exerts a pressure of about 85 pounds against every square inch of the inner surface of the boiler.
