Etruria Industrial Museum - beam engine
The valve chests and steam cylinder of the c1820s-1830s beam engine that was installed here second-hand in 1856-7. The upper and lower chests contain a slide valve. Steam enters top left through a governor valve. The vertical pipe on the left carries steam to the lower chest and the vertical pipe on the right conducts exhaust from the top chest. The central metal rod is the air pump rod. The red lever allows steam to be blown into the condenser to establish a vacuum for starting. The injection valve is the red wheel on the right hand edge lower. The black lever protruding through the slot in the floor plate allows the valves to be hand worked for starting.
