There is pipe connection through the top of the carburetter for introducing the carburetting oil in the form of spray. An opening is provided near the top for admitting air, while the brick work is being heated by combustion of gas from the generator. The carburetter stands on a level with the generator and is of about the same size. The construction of the superheater is similar to that of the carburetter, consisting of a lining of fire brick and the interior filled with checker work.
