FIREBRICK, SANITARY TUBE, AND ENCAUSTIC TILE WORKS

In the above Works it is used for reducing to a fine granular pow-
der Fire Clays, Marl, Ganister, Burnt Bricks, &c. The strong and
powerful 6ft. 3in. size is alone competent to satisfactorily cope with
such hard materials as these, which size is also used for Chrome Ore,
&c. The amount that can be passed through one of these large ones
varies with the power of the engine used to drive it, up to as much as
30 and even 40 ions an hour. This capacity is two and a-half times
greater than that of the 4ft. ones, and their weight is 57cwt., instead
of 27 only.

The 4ft. size is the one used for this purpose, which will reduce
