ultimate in quality, rarely found today - a possession
you will be proud to own in so far as we guarantee our
RAMs forever. We build them in such a way that
they will never cease to function. Every part is made
to our specification - nothing is bought off the shelf.
All RAMs are hand assembled, finished from cast iron,
brass and gunmetal components and all RAMs are extensively tested before
main castings are in cast iron with valve seats in gunmetal
for anti-corrosion and longevity. Elegant brass taps
adorn the air vessel and the whole RAM is painted and
finished to a very high standard.
type of RAM utilises only one power water source and pumps
this same water to a higher source. As has been
previously described, this can be from a fall as low
as 20 inches (50cm) and is suitable for use when either
the water in question is potable and pure or if the
water is impure and is not required for human consumption.
Type Vulcan RAM
the supply of pure water is too small to work a Simple
RAM, but where a stream of impure water is also available,
a Compound RAM may be recommended with confidence, as
these machines use the impure water for power purposes
and raise the pure water only.
manufacture two types of compound RAM:
Piston - with this type of RAM we guarantee that
the impure water which drives the RAM cannot in any
way be mixed with the pure water that is pumped. This
type of RAM is extremely useful where there is an ample
supply of impure water but only a limited supply of
pure water from a small spring. The spring is led down
to the RAM and pumped by the Piston Type Compound RAM
from a tank adjacent to it. This type of pump will pump
under the most severe conditions.
Leviathan Hydraulic Engine RAM
self-working PATENT HYDRAULIC ENGINE raises water 200
feet, or more, above the level of the spring or river
where it is applied. By this Engine, towns, houses,
factories, canals, gardens, farms and land upon elevated
situations can be supplied with a constant stream of

less severe conditions a Tubular Type Compound
RAM can be utilised.
