The small blast volume required made it possible for few engines of moderate size to supply the blast required for a furnace at a very moderate speed. Hence, there was little or no demand for high speed to cut down the number and size of engines required. Your new Blast Furnace will be the centerpiece of your steel works. For more realism, the stoves can be connected to the Blowing Engine House (#) using the Blowing Engine House Piping Kit (#). If your space is limited, a single furnace can model a stand-alone operation, known as a “merchant iron mill” producing only pig iron.

Those components are in storage in the gas blowing engine house. The buildings housing the AC engines, turbo blowers, and gas blowing engines were all once connected. However, the former two buildings were demolished by Bethlehem Steel in the late s, leaving the gas blowing engine .

  Tod Gas Blowing Engines I found a little book printed by Lindsay "Large Gas Engine Design" - it shows a pre line up of four Tod engines like this at the Carnegie Steel Company, Youngstown, Ohio. some even did both in one engine. The blast furnace gas was of low calorific value and sometimes hard to ignite, but was a by-product and.   The gas the engines ran on was the gas that was taken from the tops of the blast furnaces, which contained carbon monoxide and had a low btu contant. So in essence a blowing engine would send air into a blast furnace and then several minutes later that air would return to the engine, but now containing CO.

Object Registration Keywords. Turbo blowing engines give a steadier blast and a better measurement of blast than any other form of blowing apparatus for blast furnaces. Steadier and better measured blast gives better conditions in the furnace, which leads to increased output and improved quality.
