332,815. Demoulin, C. Sept. 23, 1929. Emulsions, making.

-In the manufacture of fuel briquettes from wood charcoal, pitch derived from tar obtained by the distillation of wood is employed as a binder which is brought to an emulsion by the addition of a heated alkaline solution. To the pitch heated to a temperature of about 100 C. is added a solution of sodium carbonate at approximately the same temperature, and the emulsion is fed into a centrifugal disintegrator simultaneously with the powdered charcoal heated to about the same temperature. The resulting mass is warmed to a temperature of about 120 C. to break down the emulsion and is then pressed into briquettes. To aid the combustion of the finished briquette, a small quantity of sodium nitrate is incorporated in the mixture fed into the disintegrator.
