We all know the story: the guy who started a company that made air conditioners with hydraulic presses that spewed so much CO2 that it had to be shut down.
The guy who also invented the most powerful home air conditioner ever.
The CEO who got his start selling oil rigs to oil and gas companies.
The inventor of the first commercial jetliner.
The first commercial drone.
The man who started the world’s first commercial spaceflight.
The most powerful human-made object ever.
And now we’ve got the first-ever commercial hydraulic press.
That’s right: The world’s most powerful hydraulic press, designed to crush concrete into tiny bits.
That is the story of a company called Krw, and a company with one of the most intriguing names in the hydraulic press business.
This week, Krw will be inducted into the US National Energy Technology Museum.
For decades, the company has been the poster child for what a hydraulic press can do.
And for good reason.
For years, it’s been the best known of many companies that have invented a machine that can compress air.
And Krw is the poster boy for one of those things.
It’s also a pioneer in a whole new field, hydraulic press engineering.
The company was founded in the late 1970s, when its founder, Paul Wengraf, was a 20-year-old engineering student.
Wengrain had already created a few prototypes of hydraulic presses for the construction industry.
But the company was looking for a way to build a larger and more powerful press for commercial applications.
In the 1980s, Wengrin went to a company in the Netherlands that was building a press to produce high-pressure hydraulic fluids for use in oil and natural gas drilling.
The Dutch company was doing a lot of work on a hydraulic fluid that they thought could be used in fracking.
So Wengain was intrigued.
He bought a piece of the press for $5,000 and set about building it.
He also got an idea: he wanted to build the press in the USA.
In 1990, Krew Industries of New York City bought the press and set out to build it in the United States.
Wrenk, who died in 2014, was inspired by his friend and colleague Steve Wengren, the founder of the company, and the company’s vice president of operations.
Wrienk was convinced that a hydraulic machine could make it possible for the hydraulic fluid industry to produce more of the highly-efficient and energy-efficient hydraulic fluid needed for fracking.
Wreenk was also convinced that it would be an excellent product for the American oil andgas industry.
“I was totally convinced that there was going to be a boom in hydraulic fracturing and the United State’s going to have a huge impact on the hydraulic fracturing industry,” Wrenkenk said.
“That’s the vision that was coming from Wrennenk.”
The idea was to build an enormous hydraulic press in New York State and then move it to Pennsylvania and Ohio, where it would build a huge, hydraulically powered pipeline to carry it all the way to Texas.
Wrenching the ground and creating the pressure The press was meant to be the engine of a huge new hydraulic fracturing project.
But Wrenkens experience building the press led him to an idea.
Wienkens thought the press could be built in New Mexico and built in a factory in Ohio.
Then he thought, well, if that was the case, why didn’t he build it there?
Wrennkenk decided to make the press bigger.
He wanted to make it so big that it could press all the oil and coal that was left in the ground at Krw’s headquarters in New Jersey.
And then, when it was finished, he wanted it to be able to press the gas that was still in the earth and then send it all back out again.
Wrewenk built the press so large that it was actually capable of producing a huge amount of pressure.
And it was also so powerful that when the pressure got to a certain point, it would release the gas from the press into the ground, creating the vacuum that would make the water rise and create the pressure.
It was a huge vacuum, and it was able to push a lot more gas out of the ground than most conventional pressers could do.
So it was capable of pulling a lot less gas out than a conventional hydraulic press could.
Wrw was surprised that the press was so powerful.
“The pressure is so big, it could just suck up a lot,” he said.
And Wrw and his colleagues were convinced that they had found a way of making the press even more powerful.
The press would use the power of gravity to crush the gas.
That was the plan.
Wrongenk and his engineers built an enormous, hydraulic press in Pennsylvania.
And when it came time to test the press, Wrenwenk realized that it didn’t compress as much as he
