I recently came across The Tod Engine Foundation a site dedicated specifically to these incredible machines. The site really helped to fill in some of the details about how the Bethlehem Steel powerhouse worked. These gas blowing engines in the turbine hall were used to feed the blast furnaces with oxygen. Their huge motors compressed air which was then fed through piping into the blast furnaces.
