Seite 24 - This distance should be such as to allow of a gentle sag to the belt when in motion. A general rule may be stated thus : Where narrow belts are to be run over small pulleys, 15 feet is a good average, the belt having a sag of i£ to 2 inches.
Seite 58 - Steam is steam containing free moisture in the form of spray or mist, and has the same temperature as dry saturated steam of the same pressure. Saturated Steam is steam in its normal state, that is, steam whose temperature is that due to its pressure; by which is meant steam at the same temperature as that of the water from which it was generated and upon which it rests. Superheated Steam is steam at a temperature above that due to its pressure after leaving the liquid from which it is generated.
