Edison portland cement plantwritten by anonymouson a cool fall afternoon i ventured out to check on rumorsof thomas edisons historic concrete plant in western new jersey.The location is not a place you might suspecthad a great historical significance, as from the street it is veryunassuming.No signage to designate thisplace had any cultural significance at all, which is disappointing initself.Only did the building near thefront entrance give away its elderly age, with 1906 stamped into the concrete faade. opened in 1901, this once sprawling complex had over 60buildings, underground passages for conveyors and a rail system directly to theplant from the quarry at ogdensburg (stirling mine).At the peak of operation, it employed 600workers (traveling as far as easton, pa) and was partially self-sustaining withits own farmland.Edisons cement plant was a by-product of the edisonore-milling company, started in 1881.itintroduced major technological developments for the iron ore milling industrybut overall was unprofitable.edison didnot accept failure and found the potential the ore-milling company had to thecement industry.this was because edisonknew that during the milling process it created a large amount of waste sand,which he then sold to cement manufacturers.the potential for his own business growth was too much to ignore, so in1899 edison joined the cement business and formed edison portland cement.in true inventor's fashion, edison madesignificant improvements to the way cement is processed.his mill featured the worlds first longrotating kiln at 150 feet long.this kilnwas licensed out to other cement manufacturers and eventually led to overproduction in the industry.Another cement industry innovation by edison was his 10-tonrock crusher, which helped to make operations more efficient by ensuring that most materials that came to theplant did not have to be returned to the quarry for re-blasting.This saved timeand money.this mill also featured anelevated electric railroad, which had replaced the steam trains that pulled inthe limestone to the mill.This plant was used exclusively to create roads (includingthe concrete mile, new jerseys first concrete highway in nearby franklintownship in 1912), buildings (the original 1922 yankee stadium built with180,000 bags of concrete), and several concrete homes in essex, union, and warrencounties, including edisons personal auto garage and gardener's cottage.Edisons cement plant wasnt very profitable and wasnt withoutits share of bad luck.In 1903, it sufferedone of the areas largest and deadliest industrial accidents; beginning with a small explosion, followed bya larger one by ignited pulverized coal dust.six men were killed instantly and many others were injured.There was 15 total deaths, many related to burns.theexact cause is not known, but it is certain a cigarette did not ignite it assmoking was prohibited in edisons factories long before it was a commonpractice because of fire concerns.Damageswere estimated between $60,000 to $200,000 at the time.edison was not easily deterred as the plantwas promptly rebuilt.all that remains of this once sprawling campus are severalconcrete homes in town that were built as workers homes, concrete silos, theskeleton of a manufacturing building, the currently used 1906 building and raillines that once led to the quarry.history was created here, even if they didnt know it was at the time.Once limestone resources in the area had beendepleted, the edison portland cement company found itself on the way to bankruptcy.edisons son, charles, had taken over thebusiness upon his death in 1931.the plant was shut downin 1935 and out of the business by 1942.A historical marker for the former plant can be found atthis link and the gps coordinates 4042.74' n, 75 5.48' w.This site is abandoned and onprivate property.trespassing is not condoned by the author of this article and www.Thehistorygirl.Com.To enter may be unlawful under state and federal law.the purpose of this article is to present historicalinformation.should youchoose to enter the property, you do so illegally.Www.Thehistorygirl.Com and itsadministrators will not be held responsible if you choose to enter the site.Theinformation within this article was collected using publicly available sources.Do you enjoy the articles and features that the history girl produces each week?if so, consider adonationto keep the movement going!.
In the world, the crusher industry, one of the pillar products of mining machinery, is the foundation of a country to establish independent industrial system; and meanwhile, it is also an important symbol to measure a country's industrial strength.The crushers and sand making machines produced by hongxing machinery have provided more high-quality and high-efficiency equipments of international advanced level for the exploiting of coal mines, and metallic and nonmetallic mines.
Castle crushers is agame that takes the fun of a target throwing activity and combines it with team game elements and partner collaboration.The idea is to knock down the other teams pins first.Altought itsnot a new concept, this version has some students on scooters in the roll of a ballista/catapult (throwers), their siege weapon controller partner (pushers and yarn ball ammo retrievers), and the pins up high on astand (castle towers).I use music stands since they are readily available on my stage, but you could also use boxes, tables, chairs, etc.

As the global economy is seeing the improvement, industries such as mining, aggregate, demolition, industrial, construction and environmental, etc.In many countries are also seeing growth as well.The demand for cone crushers is growing globally.The cone crushers provide many operational advantages to the industries as well, and this is fuelling the demand for global cone crushers market.
Marcy cone crushers reduce medium to hard materials, such as aggregate and mineral ores.These crushers are powerful and tough enough for the continuous demands of pilot plant or small production applications and are ideal for reducing 0.5in (12.7mm) feed to 2mm and finer final size, depending on material type.
