Lamson pneumatic transport

About this object

Suction was the method of transporting the small capsule, bullet, along the metal tube. It is another invention from Lamson and has the ability to transport the capsule vertically and around curves. While computers have taken over many of the uses of the Lamson suction system, the modern computer cannot transport items like blood samples for example.
