Above the center tower chapel (today’s Winter Chapel) the blower chamber is situated. It contains two radial blowers (1905 and 1938 resp. around 1970), three reservoirs (1905) and a low voltage current system (1938). Above, two old wedge bellows (1845?) are still extant.

Über der mittleren Turmhalle (heutige Winterkirche) liegt die Gebläsekammer mit zwei Schleudergebläsen (1905, 1938 bzw. ca. 1970), drei Magazinbälgen (1905) und einer Schwachstromanlage (1938). Außerdem sind noch zwei ältere Keilbälge (1845?) vorhanden.
