IMPROVEMENTS IN HYDRAULIC PUMPS. W which forms the subject of a patent which has been granted to Messrs. Bellhouse


PIG.5. and Dorning, of Manchester, engineers. Their invention relates, first, to a peculiar arrangement and disposition of the pumps employed in hy. draulic engines, whereby the removal, cleansing, and fixing of the suction pipes of such pumps is rendered simple and more convenient than hitherto. The invention also relates to a pecu. liar disposition of valves employed to prevent a further supply of water to hydraulic presses from the pumps as soon as a certain pressure is obtained, to which the valve may be regulated and weighted. Besides the foregoing, the invention is designed for the purpose of supporting the large toothed driving wheel used to drive by. draulic pumps, so as to prevent the friction of the shaft from wearing the hole in the boss of the wheel unevenly. In the engraving fig. 1 represents an end elevation of the apparatus con
