Abstract

"Coal gas is made by heating Bituminous Coal in closed fire-clay retorts, for four or five hours, at a bright red heat. An exhauster pulls the gas from the retort as fast as it is generated in order to prevent, as much as possible, the breaking up of the hydrocarbons into carbon and hydrogen by the hot molls of the retort"--page 2.
