Here is a collection of over 300 descriptions of the parts of the steam locomotive compiled to assist locomotive enthusiasts to further their knowledge of the most remarkable mechanical machine ever created by man.
The Pump Makers. These are the ones we've found so far - listed in alphabetical order (there will be more). It's become apparent that some installers simply affixed their nameplate to a pump supplied by one of the larger manufacturers, and inevitably some of the names we've listed are therefore not necessarily the makers of the pump.
200 to 1 million years ago: PREHISTORY . The granite areas were formed and weathered down to more like we see today. The dinosaurs came and went and flowering plants evolved, the climate was tropical and dominated by monsoons.
This paper proposes an overarching review of national municipal waste management systems and waste-to-energy as an important part of it in the context of circular economy in the selected countries in Europe.
Full-scale Industrial Plant Control & Operation. Industrial water suppliers are nowadays expanding its control scope not only industrial water supply but also steam, electricity, wastewater treatment and recycle water in order to meet the requirements of industry utility demands.
A distributed control system (DCS) is a platform for automated control and operation of a plant or industrial process. A DCS combines the following into a single automated system: human machine interface (HMI), logic solvers, historian, common database, alarm management, and a common engineering suite.
The International Society of Automation () is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure.

• Steam boilers are usually designed to work at high pressures in order to reduce their physical size. Operating them at lower pressures can result in reduced output and 'carryover' of boiler water.

Improving steam traction. Although most references to "Modern Steam" apply to developments since the 1970s, certain aspects of advanced steam technology can be discerned throughout the 20th century, notably automatic boiler control along with rapid startup.
A steam locomotive is a type of railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine.These locomotives are fueled by burning combustible material – usually coal, wood, or oil – to produce steam in a boiler.
C. Ahrens & Co. / Ahrens Manufacturing Co. (USA) The Ahrens story begins with Alexander "Moses" Latta of Cincinnati, Ohio, who is widely credited with building the first successful steam fire engine in the USA in 1852.
