Exhibit description

Gasworks were inextricably linked to the rhythm of the town’s life. The demand for gas changed in accordance with the time of day, and the gas network had to ensure steady gas pressure. This made it necessary to ensure precise adjustment solutions for the gas pressure. For this purpose, a device was used which comprised a POOL and a manually adjustable bell. This type of gas pressure regulator could adjust gas pressure to the needs of the consumers which changed throughout the day.
