Whistle (v. i.): An instrument in which gas or steam forced into a cavity, or against a thin edge, produces a sound more or less like that made by one who whistles through the compressed lips; as, a child's whistle; a boatswain's whistle; a steam whistle (see Steam whistle, under Steam).

Regulator (n.): A contrivance for regulating and controlling motion, as: (a) The lever or index in a watch, which controls the effective length of the hairspring, and thus regulates the vibrations of the balance. (b) The governor of a steam engine. (c) A valve for controlling the admission of steam to the steam chest, in a locomotive.

Cut-off (n.): The valve gearing or mechanism by which steam is cut off from entering the cylinder of a steam engine after a definite point in a stroke, so as to allow the remainder of the stroke to be made by the expansive force of the steam already let in. See Expansion gear, under Expansion.

Injector (n.): A contrivance for forcing feed water into a steam boiler by the direct action of the steam upon the water. The water is driven into the boiler by the impulse of a jet of the steam which becomes condensed as soon as it strikes the stream of cold water it impels; -- also called Giffard's injector, from the inventor.

Cushion (n.): a mass of steam in the end of the cylinder of a steam engine to receive the impact of the piston

Steamy (a.): Consisting of, or resembling, steam; full of steam; vaporous; misty.

Cylinder (n.): The chamber of a steam engine in which the piston is moved by the force of steam.

Trunnion (n.): A gudgeon on each side of an oscillating steam cylinder, to support it. It is usually tubular, to convey steam.

Spanner (n.): A contrivance in some of the ealier steam engines for moving the valves for the alternate admission and shutting off of the steam.

Condenser (n.): An apparatus, separate from the cylinder, in which the exhaust steam is condensed by the action of cold water or air. See Illust. of Steam engine.
