Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ...from 1,000 to 1,200 horsepower is utilized. Of the total number of grinders in the United States upon which information is available 36 per cent are driven by turbines and motors of less than 300 horsepower capacity and 8 per cent of the grinders are driven by less than 200 horsepower. The work which has been described in this publication indicates that a large amount of power to the grinder is desirable. In order to utilize a large amount of power, the stones must be operated under conditions of high speed and high pressure, or they must be of a larger size than those used at the present time. Efficiency of grinding wood can be greatly increased over present average commercial practice by the use of higher pressure, since this results in the reduction of the horsepower consumption per ton of product. There are cases, of course, where such practice would not be desirable. If sulphite is available at low cost and power is expensive, this condition would surely obtain; but if sulphite is expensive and power can be secured at a low figure it is undoubtedly more economical to use a large amount of power per ton of product and make economies in sulphite by virtue of the fact that with the large amount of power better and stronger ground-wood fiber can be obtained. Economies in grinding, particularly as related to power, depend largely on the character of the material into which the ground wood is to be incorporated. For the manufacturing of such materials as wood-pulp board, as used in the wall-board industry, a long, coarse fiber is required, and this is most desirable, since fibers of this nature do not form as dense a sheet. There are, as a result, a large number of air spaces present which retard the passage of cold and sound. For more
