Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • Thermocouples are an indirect method of quality control which serve to warn against overburning.

    4. Testing and Quality Control

  • Smaller diameter stones however, make the flow of air through the kiln difficult resulting in a slow rising of the fire and possibly overburning.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • Therefore, if a small stone is used the draught should be increased, by lengthening the kiln shaft or chimney, to avoid overburning.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • The effect of impurities: Impurities cause slags to form around the surface of the stone which result in a reduction in porosity (overburning) at lower temperatures than would otherwise be the case.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • If a choice in fuel does exist wood is preferable since on being fired it will produce steam which helps to cool the fire and hence avoid overburning to some extent.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • Magnesian limes are slower in slaking than calcium limes due to the sintering caused by the overburning of the magnesium carbonate portion of the stone.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • Ideally, the firing temperature should be set so as to minimize the firing time, i.e. maximize output, without reducing the quality of the lime produced, i.e. overburning it.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • The skill of the operator lies in his ability to mix the necessary amount of air and oil, or steam and oil, so as to produce a flame of such a length and intensity as to fire the limestone column to the centre without overburning any part of it, and without choking up the pores of the limestone with soot due to too lean a mixture.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • Shrinkage - overburning: - The porosity of the stone is reduced with a temperature increase above the calcination temperature or an extended firing time.

    3. Technical and Production Information

  • It supports ISO 9660 images as well as ISO mode 1 and XA mode 2, and allows for on-the-fly disc recording in addition to overburning (if supported by hardware).
