Excerpt from A Manual of the Steam Engine: And Other Prime Movers
Two improvements made by Savery on his engine are not shown in the figure: a second receiver, similar to a, and standing alongside of it, to be filled and emptied alternately with a, so as to keep up a continuous stream of water; and an auxiliary boiler, or heating vessel, in which water was heated before being supplied to the principal boiler j; and from which the water was forced into f by the pressure of steam when required.
