A New Steam Pump.
The pump herewith illustrated is intended for use in mines, shafts, wells, quarries, pits or in reclaiming flooded mines or in any place where a portable pump is required. It is a single cylinder direct acting pump occupying but little space. Being double acting it throws a continuous stream of water and can be operated suspended by a hoist or attached to the side of a shaft. In either case it works equally well. It has a Dean noiseless valve gear with adjustable stroke which has proven to be one of the best devices yet invented for operating valves of steam pumps. They are made with a view to withstanding the rough usage to which they are subjected and are suitable for permanent use in mines. When required, the water cylinder is made of gun metal or bronze to resist the action of bad mine water. The pumps are made in a variety of sizes and combinations.
All pumps are made under consecutive numbers and all parts are made interchangable and are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving the shops.
The pump shown in illustration has steam cylinder 14 inches diameter, pump cylinder 8 inches diameter, stroke 12 inches, suction 6 inches, discharge 5 inches. They make five hundred varities and combinations of steam pumps. They are made by the Dean Bros.’ Pump Works, Indianapolis.
