effort was made to secure a continuous
system, in order that the raw material

The steelfoundry is so arranged in the

The cupola is the standard Whiting

top of the stack is 35 feet. In order
to properly charge the converter, the
melting capacity is about seven tons

furnace would have to heat one ton of
steel with a consumption of 6.1 gallons,
in order to show the same fuel cost per
inn as with coal, i.e. 21.6 cents.
In Ontario, where the coal will cost
$2.75 per ton, and the oil 4J cents a
gallon, the. oil consumption per ton of
steel would have to be as low as 8.8
gallons in order to equal the fuel cost
with coal, or 39.6 cents per ton of steel

Taking everything into consideration,


the oil system has a number of advan-
tages over coal, such as the ability to
get up the heat without extra labor, no
