Product description 18131 Water Pumping Station Kit From the Manufacturer
Academy’s Pumping Engine is a Snap-Together, Educational Kit that requires no
glue, no tools, and no painting to complete. Very easy to assemble, you will
have an historically accurate, actual working reproduction of an early 19th
century Pumping Engine. Academy’s technical engineers captured the wonders of
this mechanical masterpiece, making the model a joy to build, display or
operate. You can demonstrate the operating principles of pumping engines using
water. The Water Pumping Engine was used during the Industrial Revolution for
pumping water out of the mines. When the crank is turned, the piston inside
the cylinder creates a vacuum and the atmospheric pressure draws the water up
the pipe until the cylinder is full. All this precision of a working model and
it simply snaps together. This highly educational kit looks great on a shelf,
will teach the budding engineer the principles of a water pumping system, and
will make a terrific school or “show-and-tell” project.
