With the unprotected eye the flames will appear to be giving light all the way from the fire surface to between the tubes. Combustion appears fair. If, however, these light-giving flames be examined by the aid of violet glass, they will be cut down to short tongues of flame projecting but little above the fire surface. Even these tongues of flame give forth little illumination. Above the flames the gases appear to be simply dark-coloured streams of gas, soot laden and murky. The violet glass or analyser has cut out all the rays of small actinic power and small temperature, with the result that the only remaining light rays are those immediately above the furnace. The effect of radiation is to cool the flames below the range of violet long before they have risen to the level of the tubes. Apparently there is nothingbut ra diation to explain the reduction of temperature. This method of analysis of the products of the fire is useful not merely because it enables a furnace interior to be visually examined with ease and comfort, but because it shows so clearly the effect of a good design and the bad influence of premature cooling. It affords most conclusive testimony to the benefits that accrue from proper design, and should be an effectual silencer of those who argue that smoke is one of the unfortunate inevitables of combustion in place of being but a proof of ignorant and careless design and neglect of the plainer principles of chemical science.
