Steam Powered Water Pump--Part 2--Steam Culture

WARE inc, Steam Culture,

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.

There was so much information gathered during that trip that we decided to make this topic a two-part series. Last week we talked mostly about the history of the Allis Chalmers Steam Pump. This week, we're going to discuss how it operated. 

This steam pumped moved 30 million gallons of water a day and took about 27 men to operate the pump! Learn more by watching the video below.
