HYDRAULIC AIR COMPRESSOR, "Taylor'system. The principles of the old Trompe blower extended for high pressures. A number of air tubes, c, 1; terminate at the conical entrance of the down-flow pipe, B, at a, a. A supply of water to the chamber A, A, and its flow down the pipe, draws air through the small pipes, carrying it down to the separating tank, c, t, where it is liberated at the pressure due to the hydrostatic head. The air is delivered through a pipe, as shown in the cut, and the water rises through a pipe to the tail race. 640. WATER JET AIR COMPRESSOR.--A jet of water from a nozzle falling through the tube C draws in air through a side tube and forces it into the air chamber, where the water and air separate under pressure. The water is siphoned off through the water seal at a height due to the required pressure and the force of the jet. 641. AIR COMPRESSOR.--Driven by a Corliss'engine, direct connected. 643. TRUNK AIR COMPRESSOR.--Mounted on receiver. Single-acting, belt driven. A very compact model. 644. DUPLEX STEAM ACTUATED AIR COMPRESSOR. "Ingersoll-Sergeant " model.

Both pistons are single, acting in opposite directions. 648. TOGGLE-JOINT...
