Excerpt from The Mechanical Appliances of the Chemical and Metallurgical Industries: A Complete Description of the Machines and Apparatus Used in Chemical and Metallurgical Processes for Chemists, Metallurgists, Engineers, Manufacturers, Superintendents and Students

The aim of this book is to clear up ideas regarding the mechanical appliances used in the chemical and metallurgical industries, to expose the real importance of the machines used in the various processes and to get rid of the obscurities prevailing at present in these matters. I hope that this treatise will fill a deeply felt want, as there is only one book on the market, along similar lines, viz., Parnicke's well-known German work.

I have treated with great detail all the prominent types of machines, which are of interest to the industrial chemist and metallurgist. The subject, however, being so wide, proper selections had to be made - as always in such cases - according to my judgment and experience.

Holding the view that that man will be the best judge of a group or class of things who is familiar with the highest standard and best type of same, I have described in every chapter the best respective machines on the American market. I hope that in this respect the chapters on transportation of gases, liquids and solids, on grinding, mixing, filtering, concentrating, drying, firing, etc., will give considerable enlightenment to readers interested in these subjects.

The chapters on power have been treated from a more general point of view. As to steam power, I have not gone into detailed description of steam boilers and steam engines, but have mainly dwelt upon the requirements of a perfect steam boiler and the care of boilers. However, regarding superheated steam, turbines, and especially gas power, I have said everything that is of interest to the chemical and metallurgical engineer.

Another object of this book is to impart such information as to make buyers of machinery independent of the "talking points" of the salesman. The buyer, being familiar with the best types of machines, will easily see if any essential details are lacking in a machine offered to him.

I also hope that this book will prove highly useful to the student, analytical chemist and to the mechanical engineer connected with the chemical industries, as also to manufacturers, superintendents and purchasing agents in general.
