FORD BUILD8 LARGEST BOILERS
Hold Eight Ford Cars; Contain
8lx Miles of Pipes
The largest power house boilers in
the world are now being installed in
one of the Ford Motor Company's De
troit plants. To demonstrate just
how big they really are, eight full-
grown Ford cars were driven into one
of them recently.
The cars were lined up Just outside
the building, then, one at a time, they
were driven inside, caught up in a
rope sling, hoisted to the Becond floor
and driven Into the huge boiler.
Each boiler is enclosed in brick
settings, with specially designed fur
naces for burning pulverized coal.
This in itself is a new feature in this
kind of a holier. While some exper
iments have tfeen made with pulver
ized coal, yet no boiler has ever before
been specially constructed to use it.
But Henry Ford departs easily from
precedent in power producing plants,
and once satisfied that pulverized coal
is practical, he ordered special equip
ment designed and built for the new
The boiler furnace will consume 18
tons of coal an hour. The coal, which
is ground so tine that it passes
through an unusually fine screen, is
fed Into the furnace from near the
top. Inside, it is caught up by an
air current which keeps it in circu
lation, and it is burned while in sus

pension. It touches neither the
sides nor the bottom of the furnace,
until as ashes it drops underneath in
to an ash pit. .
From the time the coal for these
boilers leaves the Ford mines in West
Virginia and' Kentucky until it is
carried away as ashes it is never
handled by hand. All of the opera
tions are handled mechanically, dump
ing, pulverising, carrying to the bins,
stoking, even to carrying the ashes
away in small dummy cars.
A battery of eight of these huge
boilers is being built: one is already
completed and operating successfully.
THE LAST WORD IN
The crucial problem of the extract
Ion of the juice from cane lies not so
much in the pressure as in the disin
tegration of the cane for the pressure.
This latter is accomplished to a sur
prising degree by the Searby shredder
now working most satisfactorily in
the Lihue Mill.
The Searby shredder consists . sub
stantially of a series of disks spaced
on a shaft, about an inch apart, with
hammer beaters, or steel tongues 8
inches long pivoted to the rims. There
are 604 ot these beaters which Btand
out like the teeth on a music-box
roller. These disks revolve at a vel
ocity of 1200 revolutions a minute, so
that the beaters fairly pound . and
flail and tear the layer of cane fiber
into shreds. When the fibre leaves
the process it is like shredded lint,
bearing little semblance to the broken
cane that entered.
From the shredder the fibre goes
through the usual four sets ot heavy
This process gives an additional one
per cent ot extraction over anything
that has been done heretofore, and
that last one per cent is exceedingly
difficult to get. With this Searby
shredder some of the best mills are
making an extraction of 99 per cent
which, it would seem, must very near
ly reach the verge of the impossible.
There are four ot these shredders
on Kauai, installed at Lihue, Kealla,
Makaweli, and McBryde and some ten
elsewhere on the Islands.
They are being installed in Cuba,
Java and other sugar growing coun
