Abstract

"The Griesemer Graphite Company was incorporated June 3, 1916, under the laws of Alabama, for the purpose of mining, milling and refining of flake graphite...Owing to strong competition in the graphite game, it will be impossible to give many interesting facts and figures in this thesis. The screen analysis worked for after each operation is carefully watched and the preparing of the ore, as well as the sizing of the flake, is one of the most important features in the production of flake graphite, especially that grade required by the crucible makers and the lubricating manufacturers. The carbon content is also equally important. then, on the whole, the milling and refining of flake graphite is a very delicate operation and requires close supervision through the whole flow sheet"--Introduction, page 6-7.
