Abstract

"The perfection of a reheater of high efficiency has been discussed and experimented upon for a period of time nearly as long as the application of compressed air itself. At the present time all the reheaters are by the external combustion of fuel as in the case of stoves or furnaces, where the air pipes are carried through the flames or is surrounded by steam pipes, or by some similar contrivance, all of which the heating efficiency of the fuel upon the compressed air is low, due to the great loss by radiation, and hot escaping gases. Reheating compressed air by internal combustion has been suggested and experimented upon in a small way, nut no one seems to have looked with enough favor on the subject to go into the theoretical side in detail and see just what can be done"--page 1.
