Pottery Plants Install Oil Apparatus


The Smith, Phillips China Co., of East Liverpool, is arranging to use fuel oil, and excavation has been started for a tank which will hold approximately 50,000 or more gallons. The Pottery Cooperative Co., is also doing tank construction, as this firm will also use fuel oil in firing its bisque kilns. The R. Thomas & Sons Co., manufacturers of electric porcelain specialties, has been using oil for its glost firing for several months, it being the first plant to make use of this fuel. Excellent results are being recorded by the firm, so they claim.
