Water frame industrial revolution - Part 1 (Industrial Water Series)

What is a water frame Industrial Revolution? The first part of this four-part series explains the basics of what makes up an industrial water system, including the basic components and how they work together to create a safe, reliable, efficient, and cost effective process for your industry.

The industrial revolution saw the development of the steam engine, but one of its most important inventions was the use of the first commercially successful automatic loom, invented by Richard Arkwright in 1769.

What is Water frame ?

Water frame, In textile manufacture, a spinning machine powered by water that produced a cotton yarn suitable for warp (lengthwise threads). A device used to spin or twist threads into yarn and fiber and a large horizontal wooden structure with one end anchored to the ground on which the spindle was mounted and the other end supported over a stream or river.




Water frame is one of the most important inventions so far.

Richard Arkwright invented the first commercially successful mechanical cotton gin which was one of the most important inventions of the industrial revolution. Almost overnight, he went from being a wig maker into becoming one of the richest people in the world.

With his invention, he could kick start the entire industrial revolution -- making him the father of the Industrial Revolution.

Why was water used to create steam in the Industrial Revolution instead of something with a lower boiling temperature ?

Steam engines and other early applications of heat engines were driven by hot air. Hot air is very light, so it can be compressed easily. The same principle applies today to internal combustion engines (ICEs) which use compressed air as their working fluid.


Water has a much higher density than air. It takes more energy to compress water than air. Steam engines could achieve high compression ratios because they had a relatively low specific volume compared to an ICE's cylinder volume. An ICE's piston must move through a lot of gas for each stroke.

In next we will be discussing about the usage of water in industries and their various applications.

WHY Beltecno for Water Tanks for storage of thermal energy ? 

We have been manufacturing stainless steel panel tanks since 1947 and pride ourselves on providing top-quality water tanks made of stainless steel at affordable prices globally. 

Stainless steel is extremely durable, meaning that it won't crack or break easily. This makes them ideal for businesses that deal with large amounts of liquid, such as breweries, wineries, and distilleries.


Stainless steel tanks don't corrode over time, unlike Iron and FRP tanks. This means that they can last longer than other types of tanks, potentially saving money down the road.
