Works - Gdańsk - a manufacturer from Poland, among others has

In 1954, the company was moved to Oliwa on street Beniowskiego 5, where the production of highly-valued analytical balances has been launched in Poland and worldwide.

They were incorporated as ZMP "Mera-Wag" to unite the producers of mathematical (and later digital) Mera machines.
ZMP "Mera-Wag" was liquidated at the end of 1980, when the license of a prosperous company was sold to the Federal Republic of Germany, creating a Unit of Precision Mechanics "Unitra-Magmor" producing
electronics devices (computer printers, reel-to-reel tape recorders licensed by Grundig, cassette tape recorders of their own design, car radio
The production of double hose regulator "NEPTUN", designed by Ing. Jan Hiszpański
and Marian Grimm, occured from 1957 to 1959. It is a two-stage
regulator with reserve valve (first stage upstream, diaphragm
unbalanced and dowstream second stage), the cylinder is a 8L, 150
bar, low pressure 6 - 8 bar and weight of set 16kg.
The large, negative buoyancy of the apparatus (about 4kg) was balanced by plastic floats attached to the
The production of the Neptune is estimated in 1500 units
The double hose regulator Mors was produced from 1960 to 1968.
The production is estimated in 4.000 regulators. The designer is
Jan Hiszpański. It is a two stage regulator (upstream, diaphragm
unbalanced first stage and dowstream second stage), hoses with
non-return valves, low pressure 4-6bar, connection DIN 5/8",
P-21 - double cylinders (2x8L/150bar), P-31 - triple cylinders (3x8L/150bar),
set weight 24kg/30kg.
The production of the Neptune is estimated in 4000 units.
There are different types of chrome finish and different labels (embossed or riveted label).
