Steam governors

Steam governors

These rather large and very shiny metal balls are part of the steam governing system that keeps one of the pumping engines at Claymills running at a constant speed. In a simple process the faster the engine runs, the further the weights move from the centre shaft and this shortens the link between top and bottom, thus reducing the steam supply

Designed to cover a large amount of wall space, canvas prints are ideal for big rooms. We only use 100% cotton canvas with a thickness of 340GSM, not cheap synthetic fibre alternatives. All dimensions for canvas products are in inches,

We print with a 12 colour process, this means we can print a much larger colour range than most printing companies that normally use a 4 or 8 colour process. All sizes for our satin paper prints are in inches. Please note our prints are supplied without mounts or frames.
