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. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...electrochemical action which would make the aluminum the anode and would therefore dissolve it. That the rivets were of steel is shown by the samples, some of which still contain steel rivets. The electrochemical action would also be increased by the manganese bronze, of which part of the hull was made. This would form a true battery with the aluminum part, and as this battery was short-circuited and of low internal resistance the current might have been very great. The electrochemical corrosion might also have been increased by the nickel which was alloyed with the aluminum, if any of the nickel was not combined with the aluminum to form a physical or chemical alloy as distinguished from a mere mechanical mixture of the two metals. If there had been absolutely nothing but aluminum on the outside of the boat I do not believe the corrosion would have been anything like as great; but even in that case if the boat had any iron cranes, like the anchor chain, connected to it, or if it had been secured to an iron pier or with steel ropes, the electrochemical action would have taken place. A paper read at the Third General Meeting of the American Electrochemical Society, at New York City, April 16 1o03, V1cePresident Bancroft in the Chair. NOTES ON MODERN ELECTROLYTIC COPPER REFINING. By T1tus Ulke. Before considering the technical features of this most important branch of electrochemistry, I will call attention to the great difficulty of obtaining absolutely reliable data regarding many electrolytic refining processes and plants. Owing to the peculiar secretive polJfcy adopted by most electrolytic refining companies, admission to their tank rooms is generally denied to visitors of technical training, and in certain large works even to their own...
