George Lancaster, surface su- perintendent, says the Michel by product plant is the source of coke for most smelters in the Canadian west and Ameri- can northwest. The tine coke is also in de- mand for use as a filtering agent in sugar factories. Plants also use coke as a smokeless fuel. Sugar factories in Raymond and Picture Butte and Toppen- ish, Scaley Siding and Idaho Falls are regular customers. Tar removed from the coal during the coking process is sold to the Canadian Pacific Railway, which uses it for coat- ing ties and poles. The first battery of by pro- duct ovens was installed at Mi- chel in 1939. It was something new in the area, although bee- Wve type coke ovens had been in use for decades. The new by product plant lad 10 ovens and proved so suc- cessful that another battery of 10 WES built in 1942. The ovens are 30 feet long and S'A feet wide at the bot- tom, rising in a dome. Each oven handles five tons of coal, and after the volatiles are drawn off, 3Vz tons of coke are "left. Hi 1948 a battery of 16 ovens j was added but these were lar-! gcr, measuring 40 by lOli an capable of handling 7% tons o coal sod producing five tons of coke. In 1952 a further batter} of 16 large ovens was added. Low volatile coal in the are produces a larger pereentag of coke than some other types and one of the fee ton reoWzed by' Jne nterests when they began look ing for coal supplies. At the Michel by products ilant, coal is .fed into the ovens hrough charging ports in th op of each oven. It is then spread by means of a very Ion steel boom mounted on a mi chine called a "pusher" unti the coal is spread evenly to depth of about 12 inches o the floor of the oven. The coking procedure takes about an hour for each inch o coal. During the process, air Is ex eluded from the ovens and 1W s accompishled by c 1 o s i n i trick doors on either end of thi Dvens and sealing the edges with a special mud. Volatiles released from the coal are drawn off by means of stand pipes. By means of a scrubbing sys em, tar is condensed and sep- arated from the gas. The ta is eventually piped into tanks while the gas is used to pro- ride the heat for the ovens hemselves and the KRL power bouse. Coke Is removed from the ven by the "pusher" tram which enters an oven on one end and pushes the glowing lass, which has been subject- ed to temperatures ranging rom to degrees Fah enheit, out through a door on he other end of the oven ant ito a slowly moving metal conveyor. New Year's mby comes o Raymond RAYMOND (HNS) The in- Me bore Jan. ii to Mrs. Ibert Nelson Is Raymond's ew Year's baby. Mr. and Mrs. Nelson have ve other children to welcome he eight pound, 14 oz. baby ho will be showered with uny gifts from Raymond mer- hants and friends. Baby Nelson arrived at m. at the Raymond Munici- pal Hospital. Wins town post COALDALE (HNS) Mrs. lac Yamosaki has been ap- fntod assistant secretary- reasurer of the town. will fill UK vacancy left Ron Born. He has accepted position at Haney, B.C. Hert Fletcher Is McreUry- The conveyor passes throug. a quench hood in which sprays of water are directed on the coke. After, screening and grading, the. coke is loaded on rail cars for shipment. The conveyor (which carries the white hr-t coke) is made of special steel in order to with- stand the tremendous changes of temperature which take place when the degree coke drops on it on days when the outside temperature may go as low as 40 below zero. Coke is extremely abrasive and machinery wears out quickly. Mr. Lancaster said that quarter inch steel plate under moving coke can be through in four weeks and arm- or plate in six weeks. To combat this, special brick with a hardness-second only to that of diamonds is imported from England. On the subject of bricks, it took tons of refractory bricks to build the ovens of each of the bigger batteries. There are about 50 men em- ployed at the "B-P" as it is known locally. It is continu- ous operation. Tucked away between the CP railway and the mountains at Michel, the by products plant draws only curious glances from passers by, but it is a unique and important segment of the KHL operation. MR..
