Black and white photograph of the Boiler Hall feed-water plant in the Power House (Building 11) of the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd Coburg factory complex during the construction phase late 1960. The purpose of this plant was to de-mineralise water from the adjacent tank farm and ensure that any dissolved oxygen was removed from the water before it entered the boiler tubes. This minimised oxidisation (potential rust) and scaling in the equipment.

This image shows the 'Weir Electrofeeder' 8 stage feed-water pumps. with the first level pipes completed and lagged, and the lower level pipes awaiting cladding.

This photograph is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
