    Above - The Eclipse Cross Compound Corliss Engine.

    The Frick Company produced Corliss engines in the following styles :- Horizontal or Vertical form, Condensing or Non-Condensing, single or in pairs. " Compound " Engines, Tandem, Cross, Triple, or Quadruple.

    The valve gear is of the most approved pattern; an independent and separate valve controls each port, and is so placed that a short passage leads with the least amount of waste room to the piston; the exhaust valves, from their position, drain the water from the cylinder. The steam valves are so constructed that they act as relief valves in certain cases, and the valves themselves are solid castings from end to end, and separate from the driving stem The valve stems are made of Deoxidized Phosphor Bronze, as are also the trunnions, glands, shoes and springs, and the stems are made interchangeable. The wrist plate motion opens the steam valves quickly, giving boiler pressure at closest cut-off, and kept in motion up to the point of extreme travel, permitting the point of cut-off to be exactly determined and disengagements effected positively. Both the steam and exhaust valves are given a peculiar dwell movement where it is most needed. The reversal of the valves is bought about without shock, the movement being so easy from a state of rest to a rapid motion, and that without straining the connections, the wear and tear of moving p...

    THE demand for an elementary treatise on the Corliss Engine has induced me to undertake the preparation of this volume. It is presented with no journalistic pretensions and with no ambition save the advancement and welfare of the younger mem bers of our chosen calling. It has been the aim of the author to set forth the principles governing the subject matter in language free from unnecessary technicalities and as concisely as possible. While a few indicator diagrams have been introduced from the author's practice for the purpose of illustrating certain points, no attempt has been made to treat at length on this subject, as the fraternity is well sup- plied with most admirable works on this line. Should this volume be the means of im- parting the desired knowledge to its readers the author will, indeed, be amply repaid for the effort. THE AUTHOR. JUNE, 1898. 83017 TABLE OF COXTEtfTS. PART I.
