Page 330 - The pans are usually provided with a set of stirrers to prevent the acetate from burning to the bottom. The tarry matter rising to the surface is removed through a sliding door.

Some finish the drying in rooms heated by the waste furnace or retort gases. The residue in the stills is " boiled tar," and is removed...

The cutting may be made to follow any desired line, executing...
