     You're right! A lot of people from local and northeastern clubs were in to see it, and that's just what they did! Museums, too! Local historical society, same thing. Then, to add insult to injury, I had one fellow from a well known steam club go up one side of me and down the other when I mentioned we were recovering the engine, he was mad as hell. I had to hear how his club had enough money to get any engine they wanted, and if that one was worth getting they would have gotten it, how we were spoiling the chances of other groups getting engines because we didn't know what we were doing and we were going to give such groups a bad name when we failed. Needless to say, I've never joined. Unbelievable. The good part is that it turns out he is not representative of the attitudes in general in that group, and there are many fine fellows there doing good work too! But there's always gotta be one! - Jim Mackessy

Group Report Corliss Engine: The Great Corliss Engine

This remarkable mechanism was a simple condensing engine. It was finished in 1876 requiring seven months to build. It furnished power for running the machinery at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition in 1876. It was purchased by George Pullman in 1880and was moved from Providence RI where it had been in storage after the run of the Centennial Exposition to Pullman, requiring a train of thirty-five cars to transport it. It was shaped like the capital letter A and from the floor to the top of the walking beam was forty feet. The cylinders were forty inches in diameter affording a ten-foot stroke. The diameter of the crankshaft was eighteen inches and twelve feet long. The diameter of the large gear (fly) wheel was thirty feet with a face of 24 inches and was the largest gear wheel in the world. The gear wheel meshed into a pinion wheel that powered 3268 feet of main power shafting located in tunnels 4-5 feet below grade in tunnel. From the main power shaft, approximately 13,000' of overhead shafting and two miles of belting applied to the machinery in the car shop. The engine was capable of developing 2500 horsepower.

When the engine was started at the Centennial exposition in Philadelphia's Fairmont Park by President Grant and Emperor Don Pedro III of Brazil, they were supported by a choir of 1000 singing Handel's Hallelujah Chorus, a band of 150 pieces playing the Centennial March composed by Richard Wagner, followed by 100 gun salute.

The engine was started by Florence Pullman on April 2, 1881, and ran until the fall of 1910, when it was scrapped after electricity replaced steam as the power source. Portions of the foundation of the original engine house and power shaft tunnels located below grade are still visible on the site.

The engine house at the Pullman Factory was located east (to the rear) of the North Factory wing in a room 40' square and 66' high. Wide aisles around the engine platform were providing for visitor on sight seeing tours of the factory works. The cost of engine was $77,000.

Når en ny motor er å bli installert er det forventes at ingeniøren ansvarlig skal være kvalifisert til å tilby verdifulle forslag om plassering, etc., også utføre arbeidet av ereksjon ifcalled ved for å gjøre dette.

Følgende forklaring av metoden for prosedyren, bortsett fra noen forslag om plassering, forbereder bakken, etc., gjelder også for oppføring av drivkraften for en helt ny produksjon plante som et tillegg til et anlegg allerede i bruk.

Vi antar at det er besluttet å installere en ny motor for å plassere re som ikke lenger kan kjøre produksjons-anlegg på full kapasitet. Det første du må vurdere er plasseringen. Generelt motoren skal plasseres som cen-trally som mulig når det gjelder dis-tribution av makt, at i tilfelle en lang rekke shafting er å bli kjørt, vil det være mye bedre å finne om




midten av linjen, hvis mulig, er enn stasjonen den fra den ene enden, for en gitt mengde kraft til å være overført en lettere aksel kan brukes i tidligere posisjon enn mulig i det siste. Selvfølgelig er det ikke tilrådelig å skille motoren og høylandet av noen stor avstand hvis det kan unngås, men uunngåelige tap på grunn av shut-ting ned anlegget lenge nok til å re-Flytt gamle motoren og grunnlaget, bygge nye Fundamenter og sette opp den nye motoren på området på den gamle, vil vanligvis langt mer enn oppveie noen gevinst ved å ha en kompakt plante. I dag, med våre beundringsverdig ikke-varme-ledende gulvbelegg, retur feller, damp looper, etc., er det mulig å gjennomføre damp til betydelig dis-tances med men veldig bagatellmessig tap fra stråling og kondens.

Det er mange andre steder enn de opplistede som må være con-sidered bestemme på stedet, for hver tilfellet har spesielle særegenheter.

I en ny fabrikk det bør være lite problemer med decid-ing på plasseringen av drivkraften, og likevel det er beklagelig at det finnes i dag så mange eksempler på kort sightedness i denne forbindelse




slik som motoren rom uten vinkjellere, med damp og vann rør kjører under gulvet der det er knapt nok å gjennomgå, for ikke å snakke å gjøre effektivt arbeid, når reparasjoner må gjøres, i slike trange kvartalene, og motorer plassert rett ut i de viktigste butikk vithout noen beskyttelse mot støv og smuss.

Har bestemt på plasseringen for våre ny motor, må bakken være staket ut for foundation utgraving tegningene innredet av motoren byggherrer gir alle nødvendige dimensjonene det viktigste kravet er at det Graves med den lengste siden vinkelrett linje akselen i fabrikken.

Hva slags jord møtte w r syk har dens effekt på metoden pre-paring for foundation riktig, derfor er det umulig å si regel for alle tilfeller. En praktisk mason, opplevde i denne bransje, ville være mest sannsynlig personen bestemme på hva som skal gjøres i uvanlige tilfeller, men følgen-har blitt funnet for å møte vanlige krav.

Bære utgraving ned ca tjue inches under der nederst hore murstein-arbeidet skal begynne,




har overflaten jevnet og grundig tamped, holder det ganske fuktig mens den tamping blir gjort. Etter det har fått en god, ærlig ramming fyll i denne ekstra dybde, et tynt lag samtidig med et konkret består av fem deler av knust stein, to deler av rene, skarpe sand og en del av Portland sement. Som hvert lag er satt i, tamp den godt før du setter i neste lag til ønsket tykkelse er nådd. Dette vil ta tid, men det vil være tid w r ell, som det må huskes at selv en dårlig bygget maskinen kan kjøre bra på et godt fundament, mens den beste motoren bygget ikke vil gi tilfredsstillelse Hvis satt på en dårlig foundation. Ta ikke hensyn til de som argumentere økonomisering i materiale og bruk bare best. Betong sengen bør være tid til å herde grundig før du starter på grunnlag riktig.
