When Completed New
Power House Is to
Be Best in State.
HALF COMPLETED NOW
Moat Complete Equipment in
Nation Ordered for West
Of Ui great volunio of now Indus
trial construction began In 1810,
nonn porhapa. will boost Tulsa bo
much aa the biff now power plant
ma the Public Service comiwiny of
OK'.alionia is now rrectlnt, south of
W est Tulsa at a cost of H.O00.OUO.
Tho new i-'ant will bo located on
tho west bank of the Arkansas river
en Uio property adjoining tho Mid
land Valley railroad to tho south.
The property consists of approxl-
",- .. i -fin feet and a L'.OOO-foot
spur tracl: leading from tho railroad
to Uie plant l'ractlcally all of this
land Is above tho high water mark.
Tho plant proper will bo located
about 100 feet from Uio river, near
the center of the nloL
TliLi generating station Is to bo tho
try last word In lowcr plant engi
neering, tho building Is of reinforced
concrete, steel and brick construc
tion, and as near fireproof us a
building can bo made. As being
erected at tho present tlmo tho build
ing dimensions are: 100 feist deep,
165 feet front and 70 foot high. Tho
station la to bo divided Into thrco
main section, ono of which will con
tain tho boilers and boiler equip
ment. Tho second will contain tho
steam turbo genorators und tho
auxiliary equipment. The third will
contain all of tho electrical switches,
I bus bars and other electrical equip
ment. Technically New Plant to m Host.
As laid out athls time, the bollor
qulpment will consist of thrco Ster
ling boilers with high and low pros
euro economizers which will bo cap
nblo of generating 60,000 pounds of
steam per hour at 260 pounds pres
suro and -00 degrees super heat
whic will give the steam a tempera
ture f approximately 600 degrees 1
The boilers will bo so equipped that
either coal or oil may bo used as
fuel. Two large oil tanks will bo con
structed for tho storage of fuel oil,
and provisions will nlso bo mado
for carrying a largo storago of coal,
lly means of this storage of fuel the
plant will bo ahlo to operate for a
considerable length of tlmo without
receiving any fuel by rail. Tho tur
bo generators nro to bo two In num
ber, both of them of tho Curtis typo
ns manufactured by tho General
Klectrlo company of Schenectady, N.
Y. One unit will be of 5,000 K. W.
capacity and tho second unit of
7.500 cnpaclty, which will givo a to
tal generating capacity of 17,000
horsepower. Kach turbine will bo
provided with a surfaco condensor
ns manuacturcd by tho Wheeler Con
denser company, and tho two urrila
will require for condensing purposes
15.000 gallons of water per minute,
willed In nrm Ivnlnnt In 3A.OnO.000 tr.il.
Ions In 24 hours, or nlno lltnea Uio
total requirement of tno city of Tul
sa for ono day. Tho turbo gencr-
nlors will rvi at 1,800 revolutions
per tntnuto and will bo of tho most
efficient typo of steam turblno units.
A total temperature drop of over
600 degrees will tako placo-within
tho turbines In a distance of less
than six feet. Thoso turbines will
bo so well balaned that when thry
aro running at 1,800 revolution per
tnlntito a ono cent piece can be
stood on end on any of tho bearings
of tho unit and this ono cent piece
will remain standing In a vertical
position or several hours,
All lioavy duty electrical switches
aro to bo of tho remote control typo
und tho ontlro electrical Insinuation
will bo as near fool proof an It Is
posilblo to build such apparatus. Tho
plant Is so constructed that It can
bo extended In the future to meet
tho demand of tho Increased growth
of Tulsa. No expenso Is being spared
In pushing tho work as rapidly an
possible and Iniimiklng tho plant ns
complete In every detail as It Is pos
sible to build an electrical generat
Tho plant Is being constructed by
tho Mlddlo West Utilities company
of Ullnoli who bavo employed
Mewsrs. Sargent and L.tinrly ns tholr
engineers. These engineers have de
signed tho largest steam generating
plants In tho world.
