Pagina 136 - ... adjacent vault, where the heat will not be rapidly dissipated. But in works where the calcined ore must be first cooled down before going to the smelter, the cooling arrangements must be of large capacity to handle the heavy charge of ore employed. In the improved cylinders, the fire-box is really a car, running on a track at right angles to the longitudinal direction of the cylinders, and having a short flue in one side that comes exactly opposite the throat of the furnace. In this way, the...

Pagina 40 - The cathode is connected with the positive pole of the battery and the anode with the negative or zinc pole of the battery. The cathode should not be completely immersed in the solution to be treated, and when it is supposed that all the copper has been deposited, the cathode can be immersed deeper in the solution and the current allowed to run for half an hour longer. If any copper deposits on the clean surface, it will show at once that all the metal has not been removed from the solution.
Pagina 3 - ... purity of our ores has established such a high standard for this metal. Only the most favorable circumstances, mineralogical, metallurgical, and commercial, would render the working of non-argentiferous fahlores at all practicable. This mineral occurs in small quantities in certain of the Butte copper mines, rendering their product slightly inferior to that from the oxidized ores of Arizona or the pure sulphides of Vermont. This slight disadvantage is, however, far outweighed by their contents...
Pagina 105 - The losses of copper in the above-described roasting have been very generally ignored in judging of its expense. At least, proper emphasis has never been laid on them. Owing to an unexplained difference of several hundred thousand pounds between the fine copper produced at the Duck-town smelter during a period extending over several years, and the monthly fine copper statements arrived at by deducting one and one-quarter unit from the assay-value of the ores produced, the writer's attention was forcibly...
Pagina 402 - ... has been paid to the physical characteristics of substances under examination than has ever yet been done in a work of this kind. To a compilation of all the blowpipe reactions heretofore recognized as correct the author has added a number of new ones not previously published. The entirearrangement of the volume is an original one, and to the knowledge born of an extensive practical experience the author has added everything of value that could be gleaned from other sources. The book cannot fail...
Pagina xiv - ... conclusions reached by earlier investigators, and his masterly discussion of them renders the work classic. Every statement and citation has been carefully weighed and verified and the references to the literature of the subject are given minutely, the book thus furnishing in itself a key to the whole range of steel metallurgy. It also furnishes the results of much new and original investigation, specially undertaken for the present work. Every metallurgist, every manufacturer of steel in any...
