Category:Blowing Engines

From Graces Guide

This category relates to machines used to supply high volumes of air at relatively low pressures, mainly for iron smelting and other hot metal working processes. The word 'engines' in this context is an archaic term for the blowers, which was typically powered by a steam engine or waterwheel, although in some examples the steam engine and blower were an integral unit.
