Steamships propulsion machinery

Steamships propulsion
Compound steam engines The steam expands in two steps from the boiler pressure to the exhaust pressure using one high-pressure and one low-pressure cylinder.
Triple steam engines The steam expand in three steps from the boiler pressure to the exhaust pressure.
Quadruple steam engines The steam expands in four steps from the boiler pressure to the exhaust pressure.

Steam engine valve-gears

Caprotti valve-gear The old slide-valve system is replaces by a device that opens poppet valves.
Carlsund thread The crankshaft is provided with longitudinal slots. A casing, yellow on the picture, connected to the eccentric is provided with thread-like slots.
Flodman's valve-gear A horizontal eccentric rod suspended in a pendulum and it works the same as the Klug valve-gear.
Gooch valve-gear Gooch valve-gear is very similar to Stephenson link-motion.
Hackworth's valve-gear The Hackworth valve-gear differs from the Klug valve-gear in the way that the eccentric rod's suspension point....
Klug's valve-gear A horizontal eccentric rod suspended in a pendulum and the eccentric rods end is by means of a link connected to the slide valve rod.
Stephenson's link motion Each slide valve is equipped with two eccentrics, one for ahead and another for astern.
