How far can you go wearing a BVAA Hat?
Despite the great depth of knowledge of old valves in the industry, no-one was able to name the (allegedly) Huddersfield-made ‘Corliss Valve’ featured in the last issue aboard a Pollit and Wigzel steam engine. J.W. Jarrett of Radlett Valve identified it as a Screw Lift Globe Valve. However Gil Richards of Gilbert Industries noted that the Corliss Valve – which internet research reveals as a USA invention - was associated with the Jordan sliding gate regulator and control valves, first used in 1947, which formed an important part in the formation of the Richards Industries Valve Group. Like all ‘old valves’ there’s a tale to tell. If anyone can shed further light on Corliss, Rob Bartlett would be delighted to hear from you.
