Scope and Content Drawings of structural and mechanical details of beam-engine in Garlogie Mill, Garlogie, Grampian This mid 19th-century beam-engine is virtually intact and is the only Scottish example of its type still in its original position. It is a house-built rotative beam-engine of medium size, with a double-acting cylinder, separate condenser and air pump. The beam-engine is almost self-regulating. The spinning 'governor' controls a throttle-valve, keeping the speed constant. The eccentric rod releases the pressure in the cylinder each time the piston rod has been forced up as far as it will go. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
