Two employees, Bob Weiss and Clyde Tetzloff, attend to a drive that was purchased by Babcock and Wilcox Company and used by AEP Service Corporation. Falk caption reads: "The subject drives will be used as maintenance inching drives on the Babcock and Wilcox MPS 89 coal pulverizers. A total of four assemblies were supplied on model numbers, 7-341672 and 7-341816. The ASU 10 radicon unit is driven by an Ingersoll Rand radial piston air motor. Included in the drive is a spring set air release brake, Falk couplings, and air filter and lubricator and a quick connect disconnect air fitting. The entire drive is designed to be mobile and can be moved and positioned at different pulverizers by a fork lift truck. The customizer insisted on the air motor as the prime mover, because air pressure was available throughout the plant. It can quickly and easily be connected and disconnected to the air supply because its single lever control provides variable speed in both directions of rotation."
