Etruria Industrial Museum, Pulsometer steam pump
Etruria Industrial Museum, Pulsometer steam pump
This is a pump that uses steam to pump water based liquids or slurries on a principle that owes much to that of the earliest device for raising water using the impellant force of fire - i.e. the Savery engine/pump. This was used for lifting a bone/china clay slurry from either of the arks below to the grinding pans above. This is actually in working order and I have helped to operate it many years ago (about 1990).
