Fourth Floor Equipment

February 20, 2015

The fourth floor of the Mill housed the flywheel for the main grain elevators. The chain drive is shown below. It also housed four cyclones, in a room overlooking the river, which were used to separate the grain and two shaker screen units which were also used to separate the grain. You could still turn the flywheel and watch the chain turn the elevator although the elevator was no longer continuous.
