Reciprocating steam engine valve-gear

Flodman's valve-gear


Flodman valve-gear has a horizontal eccentric rod suspended in a pendulum and it works the same as the Klug valve-gear, but the pendulum and the link to the slide valve rod have swaped places. However, the mechanism that moves the pendulums suspension point, is quite differently. Flodman valve-gear seems to be most used on Swedish steam engines.
