Boiler Pressure Gauge

1932


The Boiler Pressure Gauge indicated the steam pressure within the boiler drum. The gauge was located 15 feet above the operating floor and clearly visible from the firing aisle.

Manufacturer: The JAS Morgan Brass Manufacturing Company Ltd.

Type: Bourden Tube

Working Pressure: 400 psi

Range: 0 to 800 psi

Note: The gauge had a light in the back to make it easy to read in the dark boiler room.

It was normal for the gauge to have a brass trim up until World War II.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty surrounding the novel corona virus global pandemic, the EPHF museum will remain closed until Alberta Health Services restrictions are eased.  We are hoping to be open for the 2021 LWAS Spring Swap Meet & Tractor Pull tentatively scheduled for May 22, 2021.

We are located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Museum. Travel 5 miles west of Leduc on Highway 39. Go north on Range Road 260 (Cohne Dale Road) for about a mile and the museum will be on your right.
