Page 74 - In its pure condition it contains 11.4 per cent of potassa (K2O), 37 per cent of alumina (A12O3), 38.6 per cent of sulphuric anhydride (SO?), and 13 percent of water (H2O).
Page 61 - ... matter of fact, the cost of an electric furnace plant would be the cost of a regular plant plus the electrical installation, exclusive of the generating plant, because it is assumed that it would be possible to purchase power from some power company, and, if not, the generating plant would probably be considered as a separate organization, selling power to the smelter at so much per unit. Therefore, by electrical installation we mean the cost of transformers, bus-bars, cables, instruments, etc....

Page 84 - ... and we understand that it is the intention to smelt copper ores regularly at this plant in the electric furnace. More or less experimental work has been done upon the subject, and, as a result of this work and reasoning by analogy, there seems no good reason why copper-bearing ores cannot be as successfully treated in an electric furnace as in a combustion furnace. In all furnaces of the latter class which are used for the treatment of copper ores, the fuel used takes no part in the reactions...
Page 92 - Although, as previously stated, more progress has been made to date in the electric smelting of zinc ores than with the electric smelting of any of the nonferrous metals except aluminum and metals forming ferro-alloys, such as silicon, chromium, ami tungsten, nevertheless the process is still largely in the experimental stage. There is no plant operating on a commercial scale except the Trollhattan works, which take 7,500 to 10,000 kilowatts.
