The working of the steam turbines in the United States. The reaction and impulse principles used in harnessing the steam power in turbines. The demonstration of the speed of steam in the turbine. A man hits the target board with a pistol. The speed of blades of turbine when they revolve is noticed with the help of gauges. The blades must be anchored properly so that the pressure can be controlled. The control of centrifugal force in the turbine. Men work on the steam turbine. Some maintenance problems arise when high speed turbines are constructed. Careful designing of the steam turbine being done for the control of the great speed of the steam. A high quality oil is needed for lubricating the parts of the turbine. A diagrammatic representation of the working of the auxiliary pump. The working of the oil filter, oil tank, main oil pump driven by the shaft are also represented. The check valve opens and the oil flows in the turbine. The speed of the pump being regulated. The metal surfaces of the turbine never touch each other. They are separated by the film of oil.
