The Mississinewa FOG HORN was a Kahlenberg Triton S-120.  It is a piston type horn. The motor is a dual voltage 220/440 3 phase A/C. The piston sets a column of air on top of it, creating the deep sound. The horn weight is close to 500lbs. These horns are usually seen on Aircraft Carriers. Special thanks to Charles Gillespie for demonstrating this horn.
