This period has been especially noted for the improvements made in the machinery used for crushing the cane, by which the loss of sugar in the bagasses has been greatly reduced, and in the installation of multiple effects, pans, and centrifugals, that are in proportion to the capacity of the mills, thereby securing an evenly balanced and efficient plant.
Chemical laboratories have multiplied and the value of chemical control now generally recognized, so that in many instances the entire responsibility of the fabrication is placed upon the technical superintendent.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
