Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An apparatus used for manufacturing aërated water on a small scale for domestic use, by the action of an acid on an alkali carbonate. It generally consists of two globes, one above the other, connected by a tube, the lower containing water, and the upper the ingredients for producing the aërated liquid. When water is gently introduced into the upper globe from the lower, by inclining the vessel so as to about half fill it, chemical action takes place, and the carbonic acid descends and gradually saturates the water in the lower globe. When this has taken place, the aërated water can be drawn off by opening a stop-cock at the top. Also spelled
- n. Alternative form of gasogene.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. A portable apparatus for making soda water or aërated liquids on a small scale.
