It is estimated that there are 69,500 boilers
in use in the United States, representing a
power of over 30,000,000 horses, or of
17,000,000 men. These 69,1500 boilers are
distributed as follows:* Locomotive, 9,000;
steamboat, 10500; stationary, 50,6110. At
a recent meeting of the Massachusetts In
stituts of Technology, a lecturer asserted
that, according to experiments made by
hinurelf, all boiler explosions, except in,the
few cases which burst in the weakest place,
are caused by unequal expanaion of the
metal. It was stated that the greatest num
ber of boiler explosions, especially on loco
motives, occur in this country between the
Ist of September and the lst of January, in
the interval between summer and the time
when the engineer supplies feed water heat
ed by his waste steam, the cold feed water,
at the above season causing unequal expan
sion of the metal. In order to prevent this
a device has been invented by which water
is taken from the bottom of the . boiler, and
by means of an automatic, apparatus, fur
nished to the top. In this way feed water
of the temperature of the steam is constant
ly supplied to the boiler and unequal expan
sion is prevented. -
