"It is a common belief among those persons manufacturing dry pressed brick that the shape of grain of the clay used for this purpose would materially affect the physical properties of the resultant product. Some believe that clays, dry pan-ground, give a better product than clays disintegrated mechanically or passed through rolls. In some recent dry press investigations it was found that some milling methods gave an advantage over other methods, in the matter of pressure transmission. Due to this, a possible cause for the advantage was attributed to the shape of the grains resulting from the various methods of grinding"--Introduction, page 1.
