intervals the liquid is drawn off to be treated in centrifugal machines, or in
filters. Fig. 33 is an illustration of the arrangement of oil piping and a
filtering system in the American Tool Works, as laid down by the Richardson-
Phenix Company, of Milwaukee, Wis., U.S.A. The full lines show the supply
pipes for clean oil; the dotted lines, the return drain pipes. The first,
starting from the centrifugal pumps, A, diminish from zj-in. bore to f-in.
bore at their terminations. The drain pipes increase from i-in. to 3-in. bore
where they terminate at the filter B, which is shown in detail in fig. 34.
