The Details 

The UK’s Science and Industry Museum, Manchester (part of the Science Museum Group) has asked the Big Stuff community to help them work out an innovative plan for operating their steam engines in their newly designed Power Hall. They want to create a display that is exciting, informative AND environmentally friendly. However, their steam engines use large quantities of water which get contaminated with lubricating oil and have to be jettisoned as waste. So they are interested in using wet steam lubrication for the engines, but want to how it works in practice and whether it will translate to the museum situation successfully. 

Whether you have experience with this method or are just interested in knowing more please join us for a great debate. More information is here: http://bigstuffheritage.org/big-stuff-webinars/ 

Schematics of the proposed gallery plan and steaming plan are available at: http://bigstuffheritage.org/webinar-2-wet-steam-lubrication-images/
