Scale model of a Hugh Jass centrifugal pump casing.  Prototype was a rough steel casting with minimal machining performed before transport.  Ready for finish machining, polishing, assembly of turbine element and shaft (not included) and final testing. 

"Hugh Jass Pipe and Tube Company of McKeesport Pennsylvania was incorporated in 1896.  Hubert Baleen Jass III poured his meager life savings and copious riverboat gambling winnings into a risky land purchase on the banks of the Youghiogheny river. There he began building an iron and steel foundry the likes of which had not been seen in western Pennsylvania before nor since.

Originally the firm produced handrails and plumbing fixtures for navy vessels. During both world wars HJP&T produced a number of defense articles for the US war effort, including high-tech aluminum forgings and stampings used in military tanks and aircraft. 

At the peak of success in 1967 the firm employed more than forty thousand mill workers and processed an annual thirty million tons of iron and bauxite ore into steel and aluminum products for the burgeoning municipal playground equipment industry. 

The firm began to fall on hard times in the early 1980s due to anticompetitive foreign steel dumping practices and in 1992 the doors were shuttered forever.  The mills lay decaying for twenty years when in 2012 the property was purchased by a major Halloween products retailer who converted the facilities into wholesale warehouses for the thriving once-yearly October holiday costume and confections market."  -Pittsburgh Press, Dec 23 2015. 

Centrifugal pumps move fluids by converting rotational kinetic energy to hydrodynamic energy.  They are employed in various industries for pumping oil, wastewater, irrigation water, and chemicals.

Other items shown in photos for size comparison - NOT included.

Scale model is for display and operating model railroad load / modelling and is not a child's toy.

Static model only, can not be used to actually pump any fluid.

For use by railroad modelers age 14 years minimum.
