'A small portion of the hot ash-laden gas stream entering the turbine is continuously removed by this ash-sampling unit. Data from the operation of this unit is analyzed to determine the concentration, size, and composition of the ash in the hot gases entering the turbine.'
Coal crushed to 3/16-inch by 0 is pumped to a pulverizer that grinds it to 90-per cent hrough 200-mesh. The product is mixed with air and burned in the combustors. Hot high-speed gas from the ash separators drives the turbine, air compressor, and electric generators. Exhaust from the turbine passes through a regenerator that preheats compressed air to the combustors. If used, please credit Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior.
This mock-up shows the new blade design being tested by the Bureau of Mines. The base of the blade is thicker and there is a strip of titanium carbide at the point of previous severe erosion. If used, please credit Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior.During LDC's final 1,100-hour run, this rotor blade (arrow) was undercut by ash flowing  along the rotor past the tips of the stator blades.

'All ready-Hoist! This is an end view of one of our new steel mine cars on a cage at one of the White Oak Shaft mines, and the signal has just been given to hoist it to the surface--450 feet up! These electric equipped hoists can hoist a car every twenty seconds and dump it! The cars are placed on the cages automatically by creeper chains and car stops. One man operates the signals and car stops and chains.'

'Coal at all White Oak shafts mines is handled on self dumping cages, which handle the coal uniformly and with a minimum of breakage. Note how evenly the coal is flowing from the mine car. Much more rapid of course than the picture indicates, but it shows how well designed the equipment must be to handle the coal in such splendid manner.'
