Email this Article Triple-expansion engine. Tandem engines, usually compounds, were quite common in mill and other stationary applications. There were some tandem locomotives, in the US I think, but it never became a big thing, probably because of what @Gibbo said above. Edit: I wonder if balancing may have been more difficult with tandems? Edited February 2 by rodent A compound steam engine unit is a type of steam engine where steam is expanded in two or more stages. A typical arrangement for a compound engine is that the steam is first expanded in a high-pressure (HP) cylinder, then having given up heat and losing pressure, it exhausts directly into one or more larger volume low-pressure (LP) cylinders.

Tandem compound locomotives by P. M. Kalla-Bishop Download PDF EPUB FB2

A compound locomotive is a steam locomotive which is powered by a compound engine, a type of steam engine where steam is expanded in two or more stages. The locomotive was only one application of compounding. Two and three stages were used in ships, for example. Compounding became popular for railway locomotives from the early s and by the s.

A set of Vauclain tandem compound cylinders and piston-valves for an Atchison Topeka and Santa Fé "Decapod" Part of the walls has been removed from cylinders and steam chest to show the arrangement of the ports.

Of all the locomotive types that were created and experimented with in the 19th century, the was a relative latecomer.

The first locomotive of this wheel arrangement was possibly built by the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR). Like the first s, this first had a leading axle that was rigidly attached to the locomotive's frame, rather than on a separate French class: "MADAME QUEEN" The AT&SF was a unique engine unlike any of her sister locomotives.

The name given to her hides a significant storyThe Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad adoped 5 coupled axle steam power for freight railroad service in earlychoosing to use the 5 axle approach for their tandem- compound "Decapod" series of freight engines.

Relatively few compound locomotives were made after Orders for Vauclains dropped precipitously from Cross-compound orders stopped around Santa Fe had the biggest fleet of tandem compounds; Northern Pacific, Great Northern, and New York Central ordered them as late as Large American locomotives used 2 cross-compound steam-driven air compressors, e.g.

[1] [2] A typical arrangement for a compound engine is that the steam is first expanded in a high-pressure (HP) cylinder, then having given up heat and losing pressure, it exhausts directly into one or more larger volume low-pressure (LP) le-expansion engines .Fifteen ten-wheel locomotives were constructed in The illustration on page 10 (above), of engineshows their general frames were of cast steel.

These locomotives had cylinders twenty inches in diameter by twenty-six inches stroke, the diameter of the driving wheels being sixty-nine inches and the steam pressure 18o pounds; thus giving them a tractive power .
