The bales of esparto, sixteen to eighteen in number, are arranged alongside the duster, the bands are removed, and the sheaves are fed into the hopper, where they are disintegrated by the spikes of the revolving drum being brought in contact with the spikes in the stationary bar. To dust and fill a 50-cwt. boiling of grass in this manner does not occupy a period of more than 40 minutes. " Boiling.--There are many forms of grass boilers, but it is a recognised fact that the most suitable boiler for the treatment of esparto is one of the Sinclair system. These boilers use less soda, and boil the esparto more regularly and quickly than any other stationary boiler now in use. The circulation is all that can be desired. On the top there is a douche chamber, the full diameter of the boiler, and the circulation is effected by conductors riveted to the inside shell of the boiler; underneath there is the necessary false bottom for draining liquors and washing waters. Taking such a boiler as (Sinclair's, the steam pressure generally used is from 40 to 5o Ibs., and the time in boiling varies from two to two and a half hours. In most esparto mills, lye made from recovered ash is used, making up the loss in recovery with 70 per cent. caustic, and, if profitable to make into lye, alkali (fK per cent.) is used. Mr. Beadle states in his answer 900 Ibs. (0(1 per cent.). I infer from this that the lye may be made from 70 per cent. caustic, but that the quantities are expressed in terms of 00 per cent. With Sinclair's boiler very good results can be obtained by 13 per cent. of 70 per cent. caustic, or, say, on a boiling of 50 cwts.--735 Ibs., or,...
