A handbook for cement works chemists 

A handbook for cement works chemists

As indicated by its title, this book is intended primarily for Cement Works Chemists, although it is hoped that it may be found of use in other laboratories. It has been the aim of the compiler, in order to keep the book within reasonable limits, to include only essential details of manipulation where this was possible without ambiguity. 

Each separate process will be found in a numbered paragraph, and a method once described is indicated in the text by that number when it has again to be carried out. An epitome of most of the processes will be found at the foot of the fuller description. In this way the book may be of use as a guide to younger and less experienced chemists, often found on cement works, as well as for reference purposes by the experienced, 

For the sake of uniformity, the strengths and volumes of the solutions employed are stated according to Reddrop's system as described and followed by Phillips in his Engineering chemistry. A table will be found in the Appendix giving instructions for making all the necessary reagents and their strength in terms of E, this being the symbol used to denote the equivalent or equivalents of the reagent by weight, in grams per litre. 

These reagents need not be made with the same degree of accuracy as those employed in volumetric analysis. For fuller particulars reference should be made to the work mentioned.
