AIR BRAKE SYSTEM : AIR PUMP ANIMATION

This example shows the workings of the air pump. Note that the steam cylinder operates as a double acting steam engine, with its own valves and valve gear. Particular attention should be given to the ingress of live steam (pale pink) / atmospheric air (light green) and the egress of exhaust steam (pale blue) / compressed air (dark green) in relation to the cylinders.

The user may control the animation by means of the buttons at the bottom of the form. Two modes of operation are possible, namely "Continuous Loop" or "Manual Operation."
