Now there is a separate chapter on the workings of a steam locomotive, incorporating entries on such things as valve gear, fuel, superheating and tenders, another on locomotive types and wheel arrangements, and yet another on locomotive builders, each bringing together entries that had been scattered in the previous s: superheating steam in locomotives.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF LOCOMOTIVE SUPERHEATING A superheater is a device used to convert saturated (or ‘wet’) steam into superheated (or ‘dry’) steam. Superheated steam is used in steam turbines for electricity generation and marine propulsion, steam engines (including locomotives), and in other industrial applications.

Locomotive compounding and superheating. A practical text-book for the use of railway and locomotive engineers, students, and draughtsmen by Gairns, John Francis, A superheater is a device used to convert saturated steam or wet steam into superheated steam or dry steam.

Superheated steam is used in steam turbines for electricity generation, steam engines, and in processes such as steam are three types of superheaters: radiant, convection, and separately fired. A superheater can vary in size from a few tens of feet to several hundred feet.

The Bohemian Northern Eailway Company, in a letter to the author of Apwrite as follows:—" The two superheated steam locomotives supplied in the year were sent after a year's working to the shops for general overhaul, when it was found that no appreciable wear had taken place in the pistons and the piston valves, which, after cleaning, were replaced in the same condition.

Now the advantage of using a superheater on a locomotive is, as Mr. Young states, to get more power out of the particular locomotive. That which gives a locomotive its power is its boiler, and any device which can be added to a locomotive to increase the effectiveness of its boiler increases beyond question the effectiveness of the locomotive.

This view is well represented by Professor Peabody in his text-book on "Ther- modynamics," which is as follows: "Whenever superheated steam has been used so as to give a notable gain in economy, the superheating has been accomplished in a separate apparatus, which has taken the form of a coil of pipe exposed to the products of combustion beyond the boiler.

Given that superheating produces an increase in efficiency of % for an increase in temperature of to F° (55 to 85 C°), some locomotives have a greater degree of superheat applied. In a traditional steam locomotive, sometimes higher temperatures did.

Superheating increases the power output of a locomotive by up to 25%, with equivalent savings in coal and water, over non-superheated engines. Its widespread use from coincided with the needs from the railway operators for heavier trains to be hauled at higher speeds.

The first design for a locomotive superheater were put forward in This book is printed in black & white, sewing binding for longer life, Printed on high quality Paper, re-sized as per Current standards, professionally processed without changing its contents.

As these are old books, we processed each page manually and make them readable but in some cases some pages which are blur or missing or black spots. A book called Santa Fe's Big 3, by S.

When they were subsequently converted to superheating, they were reclassified to Class In the s all but one were reboilered. A unique book, filling a glaring void in the literature of an important transportation technology.

It is comprehensive and covers 'all the bases' in the development of steam motive power from the latter decades of the 19th century to the end of steam innovation and production by The application of GPCS or “Gas Producer Combustion System” to locomotive fireboxes is explained in great detail in pages 78 to 92 of Dave Wardale’s book “The Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam“.

Basically it is a 19th century technology involving the blowing of oxygen over heated coal to make “Producer Gas” or a. The Paxman order book mentions "Three Sets of Lentz Valve Gear" so possibly three locomotives were converted. The other overseas orders which appear in the Paxman copy order books are: 10 sets of Lentz Valve Boxes which were despatched to the North British Locomotive Company, Glasgow between April and July By Tom Morrison.

McFarland Books, pages, Hardcover, US $ ISBN Reviewed by Eric Hiser. I received The American Steam Locomotive in the Twentieth Century unexpectedly in the mail.

I confess to some initial skepticism. The topic of American steam locomotives is wide and varied. Superheating, the Belpaire boiler, the Walschaerts valve gear, as far as I know that was as far as they went.

Chapelon's work you do not really understand all the important elements and inter-relationships of modern Stephenson locomotive design. His book which summarizes his fundamental work was published (in French) in and revised and.

The superheated locomotives operated alongside non-superheated engines which demonstrated that the superheated engines performed better in that they could haul heavier loads (about 10% greater) but also consumed less coal (about 12½% less).

After a lengthy trial period approval was given to fit superheating to another 20 locomotives which was. The book contains certain fundamental facts regarding locomotive theory and operation.

It attempts to teach an understanding of the formulas used in steam locomotive operation. If you are restoring a steam locomotive or interested in the Steam Era, this is a outstanding book to have in your library. American Steam Locomotives is a thorough and engaging history of the invention that captured public imagination like no other, and the people who brought it to life.

The superheated steam can be, say, degreees 'hotter' than the saturated steam. Thus, we talk about degrees of superheat the number of degrees above saturated temp is "the degree of supoerheat" So, saatrueted steam at PLUS degrees of superheat, equals steam to the cylinders at degrees.

IT is now just upon thirty years since the first practical compound locomotives were built, but even yet the compound locomotive does not occupy the universally accepted position.The book: THE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE, by Ralph P.

Johnson, reprinted by Simmons-Boardman has a chapter on superheat. With no background in engineering or science, the way I read the chapter is that saturated steam begins to condense as soon as it leaves the boiler, and especially when it enters the relatively cool cylinder.
