Last week on Steam Culture, we visited the Louisville Water Works Museum to take a look at the Allis Chalmers Steam Pump. We met with Jay who is an educational specialist for the museum and learned about the history of the steam pump and how it was used back in 1919 just after WWI. If you missed part ,1 you can watch it here.
If you love a good history lesson, then be sure to watch today's Steam Culture episode. Brent visits with Jay, an education specialist at the Louisville Water Park Tower Museum, to talk about the Allis Chalmers Steam Powered Pump built in 1919 just after World War I.
Today we decided to switch up the content on the blog a little bit and take a closer look at one of the industries we service: the petrochemical industry in the Gulf Coast. If you're a regular follower of our blog, we hope you enjoy the change of pace today. And don't worry, we'll be back next week with our latest Steam Culture and Boiling Point videos!
Today on Steam Culture, Brent talks about smoke stacks. Did you know that the idea of a smoke stack derived from the Ancient Romans? From then until now, smoke stacks are still used and have actually changed the landscape of many cities.
Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Steven Taylor about hydro testing a steam boiler.
Most inspectors want to see the hydro on any rental boiler or new boiler that comes in or after a boiler has had major pressure vessel work.
Did you know that you can use boilers to put out fires? Today on Steam Culture, Brent visits the Vintage Fire Museum in Jeffersonville, IN and learns about the Steamer, which uses fire to fight fire.
On April 22nd and 23rd WARE held its annual Partners Conference. Thirty three partners attended, representing 23 boiler mechanical companies across the U.S.
A question that we hear often is, “What is the difference between a wetback boiler and a dryback boiler?”
Wetback and dryback boilers are sort of like fraternal twins, you can definitely tell that they are twins, however there are a few distinct characteristics that help you tell them apart.
