Kifi i'kuai. engineering is con
stantly at -work seeking to transform
the largest possible percentage of
the total available heat energy in
coal into electrical energy, and to
this end has endeavored to improve
the efficiency of steam engines,
steam turbines and international
combustion engines. Another way
to conserve the heat energy
of the coal used under the
steam boiler is to protect this fuel
from deterioration of the value that
it has when purchased, that is from
the loss of heat units, during long
storage, by exposure to the air and
also by spontaneous firing of coals
containing sulphur. An Indiana
polis electric light company has de
vised an under-water coal storage
pit containing 25,000 tons, of
which 15,000 tons can be sub
merged. This pit, which represents
an investment of J 2 0,000, will be
filled by gravity, thereby limiting the
cost of handling to one transfer.
