Here's a quick spin around our three (yes, three this time) favorite projects. Let's start with the one that we haven't talked about for a little bit, because it looks like old 448 is finally hitting the conveyor belt.
Well, I hope so anyway. Usually it's bad when someone says that the wheels came off of something, but I think it's probably good in this case.
I bet that jack does crossfit.
I thought it was kind of cool how they lined up all the lugs like this. That's one way to keep track, I suppose, although I was terrified of knocking a few of them off and under something when I leaned in to take pictures (not this one so much, others that I'm not using in this post). Rule 1 for this stuff, as always: stay out of the way.
Okay, I'll do you guys a favor and not try to stretch that one into a whole post. Santa Trai is still looking good, if not that much different. The signs are definitely new.
And it seems like this is a little more iron than was on the back before, but don't hold me to that.
Believe it or not, I can actually name most of those parts. I spent a lot of last week working on a flyer about them, so that definitely helped out a lot there. Plug valves, elbows, swivel joints, the... uhhh... straight ones. All good stuff.
Let's wrap this thing up with 441, the one that just keeps adding big pieces almost every day.
Here's a part I don't know, but it says "Mueller Steam" on it, with the number 758. That seems like more than enough for Google, so let's learn something today. It's called a "strainer," and specifically (since there are different varieties) a "Y strainer." Y? Because it's shaped like one, kinda. The "strainer" part makes the function kind of obvious, but just to be thorough...
Used to strain foreign matter from pipelines and provide economical protection for costly pumps, meters, valves, and other similar mechanical equipment.
Fair enough, you don't want anything jamming up our awesome pumps, like the centrifugal one just below the strainer. And speaking of pumps, we now have this.
Unlike most of what we've seen to this point, it appears as though this one's just going to be a single. But that guy looks like he's been through some stuff and can probably handle the loneliness.
Closest to the door: who cares, the garage is open, we're not using the door today.
Don't forget to strain the bad stuff from your lives every once in a while, I want each of you to run as well as our pumps.
