1844. EASTON, Amos, and SONS, Grove, Southwark.

Patent centrifugal Appold pump, improved turbine, hydraulic ram, pumps, etc.


An improved patent combined APPOLD'S CENTRIFUGAL PUMP AND STEAM ENGINE, for drainage of marsh lands or irrigation, and used also for graving dock, and other purposes. The machine exhibited is of 40-horse power nominal, and is driven by a pair of expansive condensing steam engines. It is capable of delivering 100 tons of water per minute at a mean lift of 6 ft. The principal advantages obtained by the arrangement are, compactness, economy, and the dispensing with the greater portion of the ordinary massive foundations, the machine being entirely self-contained.

Smaller patent APPOLD CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS, of improved construction, for general purposes. The construction is such, that the whole of the internal working parts, may be withdrawn, without disturbing the casing and framing.

Improved PATENT HYDRAULIC RAMS for supplying small towns, mansions, etc. with water, in sites where a small fall exists.

IMPROVED TURBINE on the "Tourneyron" principle, adapted for either high or moderate falls of water. The arrangement adopted secures compactness, easy accessibility to the working parts, a greatly improved arrangement of regulating-gate for controlling the quantity of water, and an improved method of suspension.

PATENT REGULATING VALVE, for maintaining a constant and uniform steam pressure, with a varying pressure in the boiler, applicable to any situation, or any establishment, where both high and low pressure steam are required at the same time, from one boiler or one range of boilers.

Sundry smaller articles.
