Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...The horizontal type of generator is shown in Fig. 14, and usually consists of two domed heads, B and C, a shell A, and an opening in the shell to take the analyzer, D. The lower pan, a, of the analyzer is usually provided with gas passages, c c, and a trap, b. The aqua flows through the trap b into one end of the generator and circulates between the steam coils to weak liquor outlet d, e. The steam coils are of two different types in the two leading makes of horizontal generators, one type has fittings and straight pipe, the other has continuous pipe in oblong coils. These coils have steam inlets, g, h, and condensed steam outlets, i, j, and are supplied with steam from steam header, f, g, h and discharge the condensed steam through the condensed steam header i, j, k. It is important that these coils should drain properly and that they should not have too much length in a single coil, for, if they do, they lose part of their value by being partly filled up with condensed steam. A modification of the horizontal type of generator is shown in Fig. 15. This type is made by a well known builder and is like a tier of three horizontal generators piled one on top of the other. The liquid circulates from the highest through the middle and out of the lower section. The author could never see any other advantages in this type than those of getting a large total liquid surface, S, in smaller diameter of shells and getting rather better circulation of the liquor in the generator because of its smaller cross section. This latter point might, if the steam coils were not too long, make a square foot of coil heating surface in the generator more effective than one in a generator having slower liquid circulation. Another point claimed by the builders is...show more
