What is the duty of the by-pass valves on the sides of the low-pressure cylinders?
The one shown in the drawing is intended for low-pressure kiers.
The low-pressure air cylinders were lubricated with "High Test" oil, having a flash point of 600° Fahr.
Round the low-pressure cylinder, then down again—and we are “below.”
This latter arrangement, however, called for more air than the low-pressure compressors could deliver.
Then how does the air coming from B manage to be low-pressure stuff?
They had removed all protection from the low-pressure stratosphere.
The main engine-room, containing the low-pressure turbines, is similarly protected against flooding.
What may be done to shut off steam pressure from the steam chest and low-pressure cylinder?
If in a low-pressure engine the pressure of steam in the cylinder be taken at 17 lbs.
