Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ... brake horse power, and during the trials the average brake horse power when running on anthracite was 20'6, and with coke 20'5 brake horse power, on full load. The grate area was 0'72 square feet, and the cross-sectional area 1-31 square feet, the furnace volume being 2-37 cubic feet. The producer casing is of cast iron throughout, and this has the advantage over steel in the matter ofcorrosion in the parts subject to heat, moisture, and car Fio. 60.--20 B.H.P. Suction Gas Producer.--National Gas Engine Co. bonic acid gas; while the method of building up the firebrick lining prevents the ingress of air through any imperfect joints. Although the vaporiser is internal, consisting of an inner cylindrical vessel fitted with ribs over which the water flows, it is not of the open-boiler type adopted by many other makers. Also, it will be noticed that previous to entering the vaporising chamber the water is heated in a combined external water heater, air heater, and gas cooler. A combined fuel storage chamber and distilling bell forms the upper part of this produoer, which not only provides a considerable supply of fuel, but allows the volatile matter to be gradually distilled off as the heat increases. In normal work the surface of the fuel at that part where the gas escapes is maintained constant, so that the resistance offered to the passage of the gas maintains an even velocity and quality of gas. The fan for blowing up tho fire at starting, and the valve for controlling the passage of the air, are shown on the left; when the fan is in use the valve closes the pipe leading from the vaporiser, but when the quality of gas is satisfactory this valve shuts off the pipe leading from the fan. When the engine is drawing gas the air supply enters...show more
