Hydrostatic bellowsBellows Bel"lows, n. sing. & pl. [OE. bely, below, belly,
bellows, AS. b[ae]lg, b[ae]lig, bag, bellows, belly. Bellows
is prop. a pl. and the orig. sense is bag. See Belly.]
An instrument, utensil, or machine, which, by alternate
expansion and contraction, or by rise and fall of the top,
draws in air through a valve and expels it through a tube for
various purposes, as blowing fires, ventilating mines, or
filling the pipes of an organ with wind.
Bellows camera, in photography, a form of camera, which can

Hydrostatic bellows. See Hydrostatic.
A pair of bellows, the ordinary household instrument for
blowing fires, consisting of two nearly heart-shaped
boards with handles, connected by leather, and having a
valve and tube. Hydrostatic bellowsHydrostatic Hy`dro*stat"ic, Hydrostatical Hy`dro*stat"ic*al,
a. [Hydro-, 1 + Gr. ? causing to stand: cf. F. hydrostatique.
Of or relating to hydrostatics; pertaining to, or in
accordance with, the principles of the equilibrium of fluids.
The first discovery made in hydrostatics since the time
of Archimedes is due to Stevinus. --Hallam.
Hydrostatic balance, a balance for weighing substances in
water, for the purpose of ascertaining their specific
Hydrostatic bed, a water bed.
Hydrostatic bellows, an apparatus consisting of a
water-tight bellowslike case with a long, upright tube,
into which water may be poured to illustrate the
Hydrostatic paradox, the proposition in hydrostatics that
any quantity of water, however small, may be made to
counterbalance any weight, however great; or the law of
the equality of pressure of fluids in all directions.
Hydrostatic press, a machine in which great force, with
slow motion, is communicated to a large plunger by means
of water forced into the cylinder in which it moves, by a
forcing pump of small diameter, to which the power is
applied, the principle involved being the same as in the
hydrostatic bellows. Also called hydraulic press, and
Bramah press. In the illustration, a is a pump with a
small plunger b, which forces the water into the cylinder
c, thus driving upward the large plunder d, which performs
the reduced work, such as compressing cotton bales, etc.
