Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...steel crucibles. DISCUSSION. (At Chicago, January 20, 1911.) Mr. F. T. Snyder: I would like to ask Professor Burgess whether he ever used the molten condition in producing iron electrolytically. Prof. C. F. Buroess: Only to a very slight extent. We got no encouraging results. Mr. G. H. Jones: One point I consider very important is the cost of the current. Using it during the off months or at the off times of the day, the rate of the ordinary charge for the refinery will be almost one-half of the ordinary price, and that will make it very low indeed and ought to help out a great deal in this business. Prof. H. N. Mccoy: At what times in the day, Mr. Jones? Mr. Jones: From four o'clock to eight o'clock in the afternoon during the months of December, January and February. All the other months you can use it all the time, but not during those four months, --those are the off months. Mr. C. E. Baker: I would like to ask Professor Burgess if he ever tried electrolyzing iron from chloride solutions. Prop. Burgess: You cannot get deposits of iron from chloride solutions as satisfactorily as from sulphate solutions. However, it is'simply a question of adjusting your electrolyte so you can build up a big deposit, and which will be cheaper. Other experimenters have reported satisfactory results from chloride solutions, but we have not succeeded in getting satisfactory results. Mr. W. Bently: I would like to ask Professor Burgess if he has the electrodes in motion in depositing the iron; whether they are moving while the iron is being deposited or whether they are stationary in the solution. Prof. Burgess: Everything is perfectly quiet in the tank. We have tried the effect of rapid circulation and slow, and find little if any change in it and, more
