Allgemeines

ZEIT1901
THEMABeschreibung
TEXTThe works are divided into two departments, the engineering department and the foundry department. The engineering department is employed in the construction and manufacture of high-class engine work of every description, and for all powers. The class of engines made is chiefly for driving mills, electric lighting, and traction, winding engines for mines, engines for driving stamps, hydraulic and other pumping machinery, etc. For upwards of thirty years a speciality has been made of hydraulic machinery for railways, docks,, steel works, etc., and the firm has supplied this type of hydraulic machinery to a large number of the principal docks, harbour boards,, and railways in Great Britain and on the Continent. The foundry department is capable of turning out the largest castings, and has a considerable trade in supplying the firms of marine engineers on the Clyde, besides executing other general work. Both foundry and engineering shops are equipped in the most modem manner, and finished with the usual steam and hydraulic power and electrical appliances as are customary in up-to-date works. The average number of men employed in these works is between seven and eight hundred.

TEXTThe work produced comprises triple-expansion, compound, and single-cylinder engines, condensing and high- pressure, of all descriptions and for all powers. For upwards of thirty years a speciality has been made of hydraulic machinery; and a large set of hydraulic engines, accumulator, and portable cranes has just been completed for the Clyde Trust at Cessnock Dock, Govan. The foundry, which is kept as a separate department, is capable of turning out the largest castings, and has a considerable trade in supplying the foremost marine engineers on the Clyde. Both works are well equipped with hydraulic power, and the cranes are so placed as to make the whole floor space available.
