    Abstract

    This paper describes an old ironwork placed in a Spanish village. All parts of it are studied, specially the Air supply and the Hydraulic wheel. The minimum area in the water trump for a correct air flow is calculated. On the other hand, also the power supply by the hydraulic wheel, in normal conditions, to move the hammer with a required frequency is calculated.
