Science and research. Studies of non-coking coals. V.F. Parry, supervising engineer of the Golden, Colorado field station of the U.S. Bureau of Mines is "sighting a coke bubble." This procedure is used to determine if a given coke has changed its properties or it is similar to another coke. One gram of powdered coal is heated at 820 degrees centigrade for two and a half minutes. The resulting "bubble" is then compared with a standard chart to determine its characteristics, as revealed by the shape it has assumed. This research is part of a project to find ways of improving the quality of coke from western coal

Hanna furnaces of the Great Lakes Steel Corporation. Detroit, Michigan. Coke oven pusher. A long square pusher is inserted through the entire section of the coke oven, thus pushing the coke out to the other side into the freight car. This coke oven is a modern by-product oven. All the gases and vapors liberated from the coal in the cooking processes are recovered. The coal is heated from fifteen to twenty hours in a temperature of about 1700 degrees F. The gases and vapors released by the coal are condensed for the recovery of such by-products as tar, benzol, and gas. At the end of the coking period, the incandescent coke mass is pushed into the quenching car
