A further specialized development has been the introduction of the impulse injection system for firing continuous-chamber brick kilns. With this system a metered quantity of oil is injected at controlled intervals into the kiln from injectors arranged along the top or side of the chamber being fired. The equipment is made to be portable so that it can be moved from chamber to chamber as required. Injection is the in form of a "slub" of oil and no attempt is made to atomize it, the oil breaking up when it impinges upon a "striking point" located inside the combustion zone.
They are smokeless, ashless, and can be made sulphur-free;, they have all the virtues of being "on tap"; and they can be used in very efficient appliances, internal combustion engines as well as furnaces. It is not surprising that, along with electricity, gas has revolutionized cooking methods, domestic hot-water supply* and domestic heating. About 25 per cent of the calorific value of good gas coal was recovered in the form of gas, 50 per cent in the form of coke, and 7 per cent as tar and other by-products.
