Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the American Electrochemical Society, Vol. 10: Tenth General Meeting, New York, October 8 and 9, 1906 In old times in the handling of metals, heat was the agent; terrible heat; scorching furnaces; workmen obliged to strip to the skin, handling enormous heavy rakes and hoes, and push them into those terribly hot furnaces to rake the molten metal, expend ing their physical energy to an exhausting degree and heating their poor bodies until they became feverish. Now, you go into an establishment like the Pittsburgh Reduction Company's works and there is hardly anything to do. Still more striking, if you enter the works of the Castner Company, where sodium is being manufactured, or the Saltville Company's works at Niagara Falls, where caustic soda is manufactured. Those works illus trate the change better than any others. In old times soda was made by treating salt with sulphuric acid, and then the sulphate of soda had to be mixed with car bonate of lime and coke, and worked over in reverberatory fur naces under the most tiresome conditions. Now, the salt solution circulates automatically to a series of tables. The dynamo, worked by the power of Niagara Falls, furnishes the current and everything is automatic; and all the workman has to do is once in a while when one of the cells get out of order, to take the cover off and repair it again. Instead of being a hard work it is really a pleasure for the workmen, and they ought to be willing to pay something for the privilege of working in a factory of this kind.
