265. Q.A boiler, therefore, to exert four times the power, should have four times the extent of heating surface, and four times the sectional area of flue for the transmission of the smoke? A.Yes; and if the same form of flue is to be retained, it should be of twice the diameter and twice the length; or twice the height and width if rectangular, and twice the length.

Instead of the square root of the area, the effective perimeter, or outline of that part of the cross section of the flue which is effective in generating steam, may be taken; and the effective perimeter divided by the length ought to be a constant quantity in similar forms of flues and with the same velocity of draught, whatever the size of the flue may be.

Q.Will this proportion alter if the form of the flue be changed? A.It is clear, that with any given area of flue, to increase the perimeter by adopting a different shape is tantamount to a diminution of the length of the flue; and, if the perimeter be diminished, the length of the flue must at the same time be increased, else it will be impossible to obtain the necessary amount of heating surface.

The pipes, M and N, are likewise closed, while the flue, E, is opened.

On the other side of the generator the reverse order is followed, that is to say, the flue, E', is closed, the pipes, M' and N', are opened, the pipes, O', P', and Q', are closed, and R' is opened.

A current of air is introduced through the pipe, O, and this traverses the regenerators, B, enters the chamber, T, and the generator, A, through the flue, E.

The valves, G', H', L', of the pipes, M', N', R', are closed, and that, F', of the flue, E', is opened.

The steam becomes superheated in traversing the regenerators, B', and in this state enters the bottom of the generator through the flue, E'.

This air, upon traversing the chambers, B' and T', is raised to a high temperature through the heat remaining in these chambers, and then enters at the bottom of the generator, through the flue, E'.

As soon as the desired temperature is obtained in the generator, A, and the chambers, B, the air is shut off by closing the valve, I', of the pipe, O'; the valve, F', of the flue, E', is also closed, the valves, G' and K', of the pipes, M' and Q', are opened, the valves, G, H, and L, of the pipes, M, N, and R, are closed, and the valve, F, of the flue, E, and the valve, J, of the pipe, P, are opened.
