Page 139 - The specifications become part of the contract, and the standards of quality form the basis of payment for coal delivered during the life of the contract. For coal delivered which is of better quality than the standard, the contractor is paid a bonus proportional to the increased value of the coal. For deliveries of coal of poorer quality than the standard, deductions are made from the contract price proportional to the decreased value of the coal. The actual quality and value of coal delivered is...
Page 150 - The economic value of a fuel is affected by the actual amount of combustible matter it contains, as determined by its heating value shown in British thermal units per pound of fuel, and also by other factors, among which is its ash content. The ash content not only lowers the heating value and decreases the capacity of the furnace, but also materially increases the cost of handling the coal, the labor of firing, and the cost of the removal of ashes, etc.

Page 141 - ... burned in a specially constructed furnace under a boiler. Coal is burned under boilers for producing power, for drying various materials, or for warming buildings. The most valuable coal, therefore, is that which gives up the most heat to the boiler for a given weight burned. The value of a coal is indicated by the number of heat units it contains. This heating value is expressed in terms of British thermal units (abbreviated B.

Page 143 - Sulphur may be present in the free state, or, as is more common, in combination with iron or other elements. Other impurities with sulphur often form a clinker which shuts out the air and increases the labor of handling the furnaces. It is possible, however, to burn coals containing up to 5 per cent of sulphur without particular difficulty from clinkers. A little steam introduced under the grate will relieve much of the trouble. Clinker may be due to other causes than sulphur, as any constituents...
