V.Ryan © 2018

 
A Scottish engineer and instrument maker, often claimed by science as one of their own. His innovative thinking led to improvements to the steam engines, designed and manufactured by earlier inventors. His interest in engines was stimulated, when he was sent one of Newcomen’s steam engines, for repairs. He realised that it’s efficiency could be greatly improved, by the addition of a separate condenser. He went on to design a rotary engine, which could be used to drive a wide range of machines, such as those used in textiles factories. He teamed up with Matthew Boulton forming “Boulton and Watt”, which became the most important engineering company of it’s time. He can be considered to be one of the pioneers of the industrial revolution. A truly gifted and innovative designer and engineer.
