Excerpt from Essential Factors in the Formation of Producer Gas
In the course of its investigations of the fuel resources in the United States and of the methods by which these resources could be utilized with greatest efficiency, the United States Geological Survey tested a ... great variety of coals and lignites as gas-producer fuel. Early in these tests it was found that many factors controlling the formation of gas in the generating chamber of the producer and, consequently, having a direct bearing on the management of producer-gas plants, were not as well understood as they should be. The Geological Survey therefore took up a detailed investigation of the chemical and physical processes that take place in the producer, keeping in view not only the possibility of increasing the efficiency of the pro duoer as a source of energy, and the ensuing benefits to the public of cheaper power and greater utilization Of low-grade fuels, but also the application of the results to the problems of boiler-furnace operations.
