6" Vertical steam pump Casting setRegular price £69.00
6 Vertical steam pump Casting set. In these three pumps the layout is the same, having the steam cylinder at the top and the water at the bottom, all working on the same principle. In the steam chest there are two slide valves, the first one operated from the piston rod which passes steam to a shuttle. This shuttle has the second valve attached to it and controls the steam in and out of the cylinder. This is a reliable method of operating the pumps and is self starting from any position. They can be run at a fairly high speed, or slowed down 'till barely moving. They are all suitable for either steam boats, locomotives and stationary steam plants. On the first sheet of the drawings there is an assembly with all parts itemized along with a parts list. The other sheet or sheets shows details of all the parts to be made. Similar in principle to the 12" Version, The water cylinder and valve chest are one piece. All castings supplied are in gun-metal. The drawings show alternative water valves i.e. ball and the more efficient three wing type. Height 5.625 inches. Steam cylinder 0.75inch Width 2 inches - less fittings.
