Wasser Kette I

Feurewehrmuseum Löwenich
A chain is composed of half shells passed over three wheels, similar to a jewelry chain around the neck as a vertical axis and over the shoulders as a horizontal axis. The wheel which is about equivalent to the neck is tight. Where the shoulders are, the wheels can rotate around its horizontal axis and the attachment of the wheels can rotate around a vertical axis. The chain is irrigated with water from the main axis. This will fill the half-shells of the chain. The chain is now imbalance, and it begins to turn around the "neck".
