Nottingham Industrial Museum - Scotch-crank pump
Nottingham Industrial Museum - Scotch-crank pump
This is a large and fine example of the Scotch-crank pump where the crank pin runs in a rectangular slot between the steam and pump cylinders. This eliminates the connecting rod and its angularity effect so that the piston time/displacement curve is simple harmonic motion - a sine wave. This was built by Carrick & Wardale of Gateshead in 1875 and was used at Colwick Locomotive Depot.
