It contains more hydrogen, for example, than water-gas and it is well known that hydrogen gives little light on burning.
water-gas is of low illuminating value, but after it is carbureted it burns with a brilliant flame.
If, therefore, water-gas became generally used, another use for coke would be added to those already referred to (p. 47).
water-gas, obtained by passing steam over heated coke, contains 40 per cent.
water-gas made from steam and oil is usually limited to those places where the raw materials are readily available.
water-gas, prepared by passing steam over white-hot anthracite coal—First produced in England in 1823.
water-gas, very rich in hydrogen, and made by a very similar process, is therefore not suitable for internal combustion engines.
Holland experimented with water-gas in the furnace of a locomotive running on the Long Island Railroad.
water-gas is employed in soldering on account of its reducing properties and of the high temperature of its flame.
