A small laboratory furnace was used to determine the burning characteristics of pulverized locomotive cinders as a function of the residence time of the particles passing through the furnace. The independent effects of excess air, fineness of pulverization, furnace temperatures, and extent of preheat were studied. Results of these tests are useful in designing the equipment needed to burn the cinders in a locomotive firebox.
