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. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...they are going to make some real tests. and a real test is when you run along about a week or a month. In a coal-fired furnace you have got, in the first place. to watch out for excess air. But when it comes to getting the ultimate and very maximum amount out of a given furnace, what you have got to watch out for in addition to that excess air is the carbon non-oxide, and there, unfortunately, the average analyzing rig don't show it correctly.
