What is a Beam Engine and How does it Work?
A beam engine is a type of steam engine where a pivoted overhead beam is used to apply the force from a vertical piston
to a vertical connecting rod.

Beam engines were first used to pump water out of mines or into canals, but could be used to pump water to supplement theĀ 
flow for a waterwheel powering a mill.
