The Curtis unit demonstrated the potential of steam turbines for large-scale commercial power generation, while its compact design achieved economies of scale that encouraged rapid growth in electricity use. 22/08/14 11:08 AM In the decades after Edison’s introduction of the central-station electric power plant, coal-fired boilers that required manual stoking and constant attendance provided the steam that powered the stations’ steam engines or steam turbines. The result was high labor costs and less-than-ideal operating efficiency.

Screw threads varied widely in contour, angle, and pitch (the number of threads per inch) even in the same industry. When a machine needed repair, its owner had to replicate custom nuts and bolts on site or seek replacements from the maker. In the 1840s, Joseph Whitworth, a British machinist and engineer, proposed a standardized system of screw threads. Rapidly adopted in Great Britain, Whitworth’s specifications did not fit as easily with American industrial practices, and the system’s adoption lagged in the United States.

Several mechanical engineering innovations enabled the supercritical operation of Philo 6. Since the 1920s, engineers had known that reheating steam before it passed through a turbine could produce greater pressures and higher temperatures. At Philo 6, the steam passed through a “double-reheat” process to push it beyond the critical pressure point of 3,208 pounds per square inch (absolute). B&W engineers designed a new boiler (or “steam generator”) that would heat ultra-pure water beyond the boiling point and instantaneously turn it to steam.
