GAS GIVING OUT IN INDIANA.
Glass Manufacturers Substituting Coal
for Gas. The Jensen Furnace
Mr. J. O. Jensen, the well-known furnace builder of Rochester, N. Y., dropped off briefly in Pittsburg last Wednesday en route to Muncie, Ind., where he has just commenced the erection of a 125-ton coal furnace for the Hemingray Glass Company. Some time ago Mr. Jensen built a 65-ton coal furnace for the Hemingray company and the fact that they have contracted with him for the erection of an additional furnace after the first one has been thoroughly tested is positive proof that it has given satisfaction. Glass manufacturers in the Indiana gas belt realizing that owing to the giving out of natural gas their furnaces will have to be adapted to the use of coal for fuel are preparing to round about and during the past month the first furnace built by Mr. Jensen at the Hemingray factory has been inspected by a large number of Indiana glass makers all of whom expressed themselves as being very well pleased with it.
Mr. Jensen who has only been engaged in tank furnace construction on his own hook since 1899 has been very successful and has installed his furnaces at a number of factories in different sections of the country. His work can be inspected at any of the following named factories: Lockport Glass Works and Lockport Glass Co., Lockport, N. Y.; Standard Bottle & Glass Co., Allentown, Pa.; Ball Bros. and Hemingray Glass Co., Muncie, Ind.; Massillon Bottle & Glass Co., Massillon, Ohio; and at the Lancaster Co-operative Glass Works, Lancaster, N. Y., for which firm he has just completed a 7-ring tank.
