Other letters concern the separation of water from washed ore; kiln output volume; tests with blowers in the clinker grinding plant; and plant inspection routines. Also included are letters dealing with quarry samples, product quality, competitors, and trade associations. A few items relate to Edison's other business interests in crushing rolls and milling technology.
