  1. Water gas

    Water gas is a synthesis gas, containing carbon monoxide and hydrogen. It is a useful product but requires careful handling because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The gas is made by passing steam over a red-hot carbon fuel such as coke: The reaction is endothermic so the fuel must be continually re-heated to keep the reaction going. In order to do this, an air stream, which alternates with the vapor stream, is introduced for the combustion of carbon to take place. Theoretically to make 6 L of water gas, 5 L of air is required. Or alternatively to prevent contamination with nitrogen, energy can be provided by using pure oxygen to burn carbon into carbon monoxide. In this case 1 L of oxygen will create 5.3 L of pure water gas

    Oh goodness, if I was n’t able to touch [ that money ], I would n’t have electricity, water, or a roof over my head, but you know, the thing a lot of us forget, Natalie Wood included, is you put down first, last, and a security deposit and you’re in a place. But how about all the deposits necessary for water, gas, electricity — all of our things had to be put in storage. Even doing that we lost more than half of everything we owned … and finding a motel that would accept us with dogs was not easy. It was costly … We’re still coming to terms with everything, so we’re not pulled together by any stretch of the imagination, but we’re trying. I ’m trying very hard to make it a home.
