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. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... of comparative tests with all kinds of bumers before being able to get at comparative data as to their values? Dr. BUNTE asked for leave to exercise discretion as to what could be published. The station was working in the interests of the gas industry, and mischief might be done by publishing data derived from an insufficiently wide series of observations. Even if a group of mantles from a given works gave certain average results, it would not be feasible for the gasworks to rely upon these results alone--they must always check the quality of the mantles actually supplied to them. The desire of the station was to make all data as immediately available as possible, but there must be some discretion as to whether publication in any particular instance would be useful and beneficial. Professor DRF.HSCH.lIDT said that in inverted lighting the quality of the mantles was of greater importance than in ordinary incandescent lighting. It did not do to put any mantle upon any burner, and a good working rule was to get the mantles from the firm which supplied the burners. And, then, the mantles needed to be well looked after, for a great part of the success of the system depended upon their being in good condition.------o0--l--THE MANCHESTER GAS EXHIBITION. 1'ROlZRA.l.lE OF LECTURES.
