  • These pumps are still in operation at Stocksbridge steel works, unbelievable!

    Ed: Many thanks for the information.
    As I recall, the H3 pumps at Stocksbridge were the later version with external pump barrels and individual crosshead guides, many of which are illustrated on our website.
    The H3 Pumps were built to last and I guess it is a testament to the skills of those that built them so many years ago and, more importantly, the engineers that continue to maintain them today. Fond memories! I wonder if anyone else knows of any other H3 pumps that are still in operation? John B
