Página 47 - On this new field of inquiry, he set out with the assumption that crude iron contains about 5 per cent of carbon ; that carbon cannot exist at a white heat in the presence of oxygen without uniting therewith, and producing combustion ; that such combustion would proceed with a rapidity dependent on the amount of surface of carbon exposed ; and lastly, that the temperature which the metal would acquire would be also dependent on the rapidity with which the oxygen and carbon were made to combine...
Página 47 - ... acquire would be also dependent on the rapidity with which the oxygen and carbon were made to combine, and consequently, that it was only necessary to bring the oxygen and carbon together in such a manner that a vast surface should be exposed to their mutual action, in order to produce a temperature hitherto unattainable in our largest furnaces.
