A. H. W. Crossley of Nelson
Tells Features of Diesel
■ Engines-'^^
IS EXPERT ON GAS
PUMPING MACHINERY
This    Type    Is    Simple    To
Start   and   Has   Low
Power  Cost
Mr. A. H. W. Crossley, an expert
On pumping machinery, was a visitor here this week from Nelson
and met- Mr. Percy Bent of the
Pacific Plume Works in connection
with irrigation pumping matters.
Mr. Crossley stated that he contemplated, opening up a branch of
his 'business here.
In an interview with The Herald
on pumps and engines for irrigation
he discussed particularly Diesel and
producer gas engines, and said:
"Power costs for this type of engine are extremely low, operation
is free, from complicated detail anc.
the machine is as simple to start
as an electric motor.
"They can be operated toy persons
who have a very rudimentary
knowledge of mechanical details. In
many cases they are run by coolie
labor. The costs of engines have
been and are constantly being reduced, also the operating efficiency
increased. The most modern type
of solid injection cold start engines
are now running with a consumption of less than .38 pounds of fuel
per brake horse power hour. Thus
an engine of 100 h.p. will develop
its full load With 38 lbs. of crude oil
per hour on a 24-hour run at a cost
of approximately $10 per day for
fuel and $2.40 per day for lubricant. With direct ibelt drive to
pump and over all efficiency o:;
70%, this power will pump 12.25
acre feet per day against 100 feet
head with fuel oil at lie per gallon
and lubricating oil at 70c, and also
allowing for attendance, at a tota.
cost of $2.32 per acre foot. A plant
to deliver the same amount of water
against 150 feet head would cos;
$2.44 per acre foot. Against a 20(
feet head, the cost would -be $3.22
per»acre foot.
"A plant suitable to deliver 30
acre feet in 24 hours against a head
of 250 feet would necessitate the
installation of, a ,600 h.p. engine,
which would operate at a cost of
$92 per 24 hdurs, including labor,
fuel, oil and lubricating oil. Thus
the cost per acre foot would be
$3.06 with the above plant. Attendance costs are based on $15 per day
on small plants and $18 on larger
ones,'- 3S2|
"Ai 'similar plant but operated by
producer gas would 'bring the cos;
down to $2.60 per acre foot. I wish
to point but that the above' costs
are straight operating costs and do
not take into account interest or
depreciation, as these are matters
of varying opinion.
"The moderri Diesel engine built
in the British Isfeit is remarkably
free  from  maintenance  costs   and
has 'a long useful life.   The case in i
point, one firm has 15 engines out
and during the last two years repair parts sent out for the above,
engines   have    not   exceeded    $70,'
Which, is less than $5  per engine.
Pumping by Diesel power, is done
to  a  very  considerable  extent  by
various corporations in the British
Isles, one firm having installations
in units "Of 500 h.p, in the London
district.
"I xam at present investigating
Princeton coal with a view to its
«se in producer gas plants. Producer gas is probably the cheapes;
power available, in districts where
direct power is not available W the
municipalities themselves.
"Power with producer gas can be
developed at the rate of one brake
horse power with two pounds of
the usual run of British Columbia
wood or one pound of coal.
"I propose to write an article on
the use of producer gas in a late?
edition of The ^Penticton Herald
giving cost of electrical development
with producer ^gas engines."
