After spending last week with the Monitor’s main steam engine, we are turning our attention to her condenser this week. Today we drained the tank and removed the anodes and reference electrodes. Like the engine, the condenser just keeps looking better and better. Unfortunately the condenser isn’t really visible from our viewing platform, but it can be seen via our webcams. You will have no trouble seeing the turret from the viewing platform or the webcams once its tank is drained on July 27.
Just a quick snapshot of what you seeing looking into the condenser tank through the doorway. Official photographs will be taken tomorrow. Happy Monday.
