Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ... to be always effective and useful. Ordinarily the gas engine is strong enough to overcome the increased pressure of the juice in the carbonators. The latter way is not only cheaper, but also of greater benefit, since it allows a better utilization of the saturation gas which is the more completely absorbed, the longer it is in contact with the alkaline juice, and this is the more the case the higher the carbonators are. This is especially important in factories where the lime kiln and gas engine are not very strong. It also saves a lot of sugar when the space above the juice is large enough, at the same time enabling one to reduce the use of tallow and oil against foaming to a minimum. The question arises how large should the carbonators be and what should be the capacity, of the carbonator station per one ton of beets sliced? It is not possible to give a standard measure for all factories, since the necessary carbonator space changes with a number of conditions. Sound, ripe beets give a diffusion juice which is easily defecated and carbonated. Unripe beets or such raised on heavily manured soils cause considerable difficulties at the carbonatation. For this reason the first mentioned beets require less carbonator space. Mills having at their disposal a gas rich in C02 need a smaller carbonator space than those having poor gas for saturation and so "forth. But let us take actual dimensions of carbonator stations in sugar mills both in the east and in the west. With only one exception, the measurements of the carbonators--as well as of other apparatus given in this publication--were carefully verified and are contained in the following table: The height of the carbonators in different, as well as in the same, mills ranged from 12' to 19/6."
