THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1030. THE DAILY COURIER, CONJ ELLSVILLE, PA, Pneumatic Coal-Cleaning iroves Physical and Chemical Qualities Coke ®- The pract lual results of ithe installation of a .pneumatic coal-cleaning eq-u4iment nl the plaint of the Humphreys Cotil Coke Company, iie^r Greensburg,. now tr-e-atlTvg 4X tons n day, has olevn.ted beehive coke to a competitor wl-th, by-product coke, t/otlj ir physical characteristic* atwl -chemical nniyeif-, nud has enhanced Its value 12 pr -oul. Tho Installation, the first in tho Coanellspvllle Region, was .described -in a recent ic»u-e of tho Coal Aigo. About three years ago, A. Ti. Kelley general manager, established a labra- lory and employed · chemist and metallurfrfi.t. -the- resttUs of which Im-ve been tfoe- solution of tho following problem®: Kind and type of median leai-clC'ftnIng equipment to iti- .stall; correct size of, coal lor- moat 0 Indent removal of Impurltiew and for making the toughest -coke In beehiive ovens; f wilier ilesulpiburlzaUon ot coko by chemical treaitmoivt ot tho coal; TnotUod« of-oven control for hit- provhig Uio iKroslty, weight and shatter index of tho coke. The processes followed Jn the preparation oi coal for tlio o-vena ni'e: Kirst MK» codl is crushed; then it is passed ovor two batteries- of -cleaning tables, the first for primary soimra- lion of impurities and the second tor rN-trenlinint: flnnlly It Is subjected to a chemical treatment by which the already greatly reduced stilplvur content Is further lowered. Betterment fti-oni this lasit procwis, however. Is f u l l y realized' only in the wsuHiuit hYom t h e mine cars the- coal is dumped I n t o a 200-ton bin, whence It is drawn by reciprocating feeclere aiul tj,kMv lo ,i C'rusher. Tlve-dhuto loading 1'iWi the conveyor to the wushw is provided with a bar screen which, v. lien \mvoileil, removes tho lump coal for separate ts.hip.mont. All tho coal passing f,o the tables is crashed, tho reduction being to the point wfhere 65 iw ceiiI of crus-h-od coal faafics through a one-eighth inch rectangular opening screen, ('rushing add» lo the clilclency of the cleaning process and, nc;other with the latter, gives a coke of better physical clfuracterlstics. It {,'oefi without s«yitiK that tho cleaning process improves tho chemical properties* of th« cok-o. From »he crusher the mulled coal is taken by a bu-c-ket elevator *o a. 50-ton bin; it lit con,veyel irom this main bin by anotlio-r bucket elevator to - a «*eo- ondary -bin of equal capacity located over hvc»'primary-cleaning tables, ' D i - rectly under tho two primary tablf-s are two secondary tables utilized for re-treatinent purposes. Ail tour tabtea or separators are Identically alike, be-- ing of tho pn-eunwttlc Y-typc, each with a capacity of 20 tons-per hour.

Coal of ft gravity below 1.50 IK so cfjinpletely separated and classified on tho primary tables as to require no fuirth-or tr-eatftiotit, awd so It ts cut and bypahscd direct to'th^ clean-coa! bin'. A{Knt 20 per cent of Die total I n p u t in t h u a a n t l l - e l . Refuse fi-mri tlie Pi'iniurj t-ih1ev amounts to about five p-er cent, und* the - remaining coal, amount (UK to *75 per cent of the Input, is given further treatment. Mid- dlings from the primary tables la re- iTUfthDC' and re-circulated, \vhile the vo~ m a i n l u ; coal ia f-onthicted by closed chutes lo Wio two .sec-ondary or re- trea-tmi-nt tables. These secondary tables -/laid clean coal, middlings (re- circulated wllho-ut further crushing) a n d , hwUy, refuse to the extent of, 1 o-txhly, two per cent of the total ton- n,i.Ke ininit. '1'lius the refuse from all of tho tables amounts to sovett ier cent. The clean coal from tho tables is tak'.Mi to a clean-coal bin by a bucket elevator and a closed chute, at tho discharge end of which is applied t U o chemical treatment for prir- ' iMjsos o-f desulpiiiiri-zatton. At t h i s plant coal is being cleaned to a specific-gravity basis of 1.50. iMiucijltKib lu tho -cleaning are accon- tuateij by the fact' that the middlings -i p n r o s e n t t n g about 15 por cent of tho feed to 'tlH plant--contains Jow-' K r a v l t v , high-ash coal. Ash in the u n t i e ; tc-d coal riuus at an average of !».23 per cent, but by cleaning this is r-eduui'd to un n/vorago ot 7.'a5 per cent in the final product. In the raw ronl ( l i e s u l p h u r content is 1.10 per coat uiul in tho clean cloal it is 0.75 pet- cent in t f i i s restilpluifixation proems a Final! q u a n t i t y of Hiernl-cnl is intro- d t K o d droy by drop into a spray of -,t(Kini. and together these are imp i i i K c l on the coal.

KANSAS CITY, Wo., Doc. 31--The rod caboofle, t raiting the end of a hiring of freight cars soon aiay bo- come a t h i n g of the pant. A new poeif -of command for the conductor te being tried out by KanatiB City Southern railroad. Ho hae been i..oved from tho cnbooso to iw.e reetful headquarters noar the engine. Since freight trains havo been drawn across western prairl?* tho caboose ha« be*ti towed at tho end oi tht cans. In tho old d-aya it was the headquarters of guards and soldiers "who rod« with trains to protect th«m frtfrn marauding Tndlan tribes, H atao was tho office of the conductor, (ho rendezvous for train crews whil« in eiding« and the rest room and Juncheon quarters for vorlcera. But officiate of the Southern found it WOB ft poor place to handle tho train and to modernize Uws'mako-up of the train they attempted to move the rabooee. No place oould ts Sound for it and after several experiments it was delegated back to the ead of tho train. Now they have constructed a glass encaged cab on the coal tender, big enough for two men-- the conductor and head brakonmn--and from thifc point the train IB liolng controlled. Thie post, officials of Southern reported, is Ideal for control of tho train. The oiiginoor und tho conductor can communicate, etieily and actions of the train can bo closely observed T»y the conductor. On new engines C. E. Johnson, president of the road said, fhe cab will Lifc an elevated cupola at tho back end of tho lender, with seata facing each other for the conductor and head brake-man. The equipment, he pn 1 - dlcteil, would be-como fitandard on till lines soon. Fatality Rate in Coa!

To Illustrate tho attitude that the supervision on tho railroads had yeare ago toward employes who offered SUR- gcstiou« for tlio betterment of tho work, Mr. Willard told of his own experience as a helper In a machine ehop. On on occasion, thinking that he had a suggestion of value, he told hifi 'boss. Jack Shirley, with, whom he was working, about It, and In the spirit that characterised tho day, Jack ropli-ed: "Sonny, when your advice ie wanted, it will bo asked for. In tho meantime, keep it to yourself.." Mi-. Willard pointed out that tor 40 years he has had hi hie office a small framed eign, placed so that every person who entore his office can see, and on it, lettered clearly, "Suggestions are always In order." Mr. Willard declared that etrorig proof of the value of the cooperative. plan ie shown in ihe fact that since- it has been adopted, th employee of the fliolivo power department alone have- submitted more than 24,000 sug- g-etitloni-; and that of these* move than 80 per eeul have- been adopted.
