Abstract

"The object of this series of tests was to determine the effect of compression upon the candle power of carburetted water gas, as made in the daily operation of a three piece water gas machine, cooled in condensers, passed through shavings, scrubbers and oxide material, and thence into a storage holder, ready for compression and distribution. The apparatus consisted of a small Westinghouse air compressor; nine storage tanks of six inch wrought iron pipe; transfer pump; pressure regulator; standard one hundred inch bar photometer, complete, with regulators, clock, meter, pentane lamp, etc., gas analysis outfit, complete; also gages, thermometers, etc."--Page 1.
