Arthur Woolf (1766, Camborne, Cornwall – 16 October 1837, Guernsey) was a Cornish engineer, most famous for inventing a high-pressure compound steam engine.
A beam is a structural element that primarily resists loads applied laterally to the beam's axis.
A beam engine is a type of steam engine where a pivoted overhead beam is used to apply the force from a vertical piston to a vertical connecting rod.
A boiler is a closed vessel in which fluid (generally water) is heated.
* Boulton & Watt was an early British engineering and manufacturing firm in the business of designing and making marine and stationary steam engines.
A compound steam engine unit is a type of steam engine where steam is expanded in two or more stages.
A Corliss steam engine (or Corliss engine) is a steam engine, fitted with rotary valves and with variable valve timing patented in 1849, invented by and named after the American engineer George Henry Corliss of Providence, Rhode Island.
A Cornish engine is a type of steam engine developed in Cornwall, England, mainly for pumping water from a mine.
A cotton mill is a factory housing powered spinning or weaving machinery for the production of yarn or cloth from cotton, an important product during the Industrial Revolution when the early mills were important in the development of the factory system.
A crank is an arm attached at a right angle to a rotating shaft by which reciprocating motion is imparted to or received from the shaft.
A crankshaft—related to crank—is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion.
A crosshead is a mechanism used in long reciprocating engines and reciprocating compressors to eliminate sideways pressure on the piston.
A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels.
Exhaust gas or flue gas is emitted as a result of the combustion of fuels such as natural gas, gasoline, petrol, biodiesel blends, diesel fuel, fuel oil, or coal.
George Saxon & Co was an English engineering company that manufactured stationary steam engines.
A heat sink (also commonly spelled heatsink) is a passive heat exchanger that transfers the heat generated by an electronic or a mechanical device to a fluid medium, often air or a liquid coolant, where it is dissipated away from the device, thereby allowing regulation of the device's temperature at optimal levels.
High-speed steam engines were one of the final developments of the stationary steam engine.
A hoist is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope or chain wraps.
* portable engine.
Jonathan Hornblower (Chacewater, 5 July 1753 – Penryn, 23 February 1815) was a British pioneer of steam power.
A line shaft is a power driven rotating shaft for power transmission that was used extensively from the Industrial Revolution until the early 20th century.
London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom.
A marine steam engine is a steam engine that is used to power a ship or boat.
The atmospheric engine was invented by Thomas Newcomen in 1712, and is often referred to simply as a Newcomen engine.
Pumping stations are facilities including pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another.
Rail transport is a means of transferring of passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, also known as tracks.
Refrigeration is a process of removing heat from a low-temperature reservoir and transferring it to a high-temperature reservoir.
Richard Trevithick (13 April 1771 – 22 April 1833) was a British inventor and mining engineer from Cornwall, England.
A stationary engine is an engine whose framework does not move.
A steam car is a car (automobile) powered by a steam engine.
Steam donkey, or donkey engine, is the common nickname for a steam-powered winch, or logging engine, widely used in past logging operations, though not limited to logging.
A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid.
A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine.
A steam turbine is a device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam and uses it to do mechanical work on a rotating output shaft.
Swindon is a large town in Wiltshire, South West England, between Bristol, to the west, and Reading, the same distance east.
A table engine is a variety of stationary steam engine where the cylinder is placed on top of a table-shaped base, the legs of which stand on the baseplate which locates the crankshaft bearings.
Thomas Savery (c. 1650 – 1715) was an English inventor and engineer, born at Shilstone, a manor house near Modbury, Devon, England.
A traction engine is a self-propelled steam engine used to move heavy loads on roads, plough ground or to provide power at a chosen location.
The uniflow type of steam engine uses steam that flows in one direction only in each half of the cylinder.
The valve gear of a steam engine is the mechanism that operates the inlet and exhaust valves to admit steam into the cylinder and allow exhaust steam to escape, respectively, at the correct points in the cycle.
The Watt steam engine (alternatively known as the Boulton and Watt steam engine) was the first type of steam engine to make use of a separate condenser.
William McNaught (1813–1881) was a Scottish engineer, from Glasgow, who patented a compound steam engine in 1845.
Wiltshire is a county in South West England with an area of.
A winding engine is a stationary engine used to control a cable, for example to power a mining hoist at a pit head.
