Tle vast heaps of scr:i tin found :about
rin-wure.works, and the quantitices of re
fuse tin cans that form such an item in city
waste, have often been made the subject of
experiment to separate the tin coating from
the sheet-irotn. Melting the scrap gives
only a spongy iron, and the extraction of
the tin by the action of acids or 4chlorine
gas is too expensive, so that hundreds-of
tons of this material are -wasted every
year, and all the experiments to save itrap
[,ear to prove( abortive. The latest experi
inents, however, seem to promise a cheap
method of recovering both the tin and iron
in a pure :and useful shape. The tin scraps
arc placed in a fournace where the temper
ature and the supply of air can be carefully
adjusted. This gives a riastinig in free air
that causes the flim of tin on the Iron to
oxidize. The alloy of tin and iron under
Ihe flim of ;;n is next oxodized, and then
thIle Sri: p is taken from the furnace, and
the coat ig. of oxiulms on the iron is ihaken
off by simp)le machin ery. This leaves the
iron in :a comlparaItively piurc state, whlii
