MODERN PACKING METHODS.

In an address given recently by Mr. Frederick J. Wolfe, Chairman of the AngloAmerican Oil Co., Ltd., some interesting details of the Company’s enterprise were set forth.

Pratt’s was the first motor spirit to be sold in the familiar two-gallon cans, theirs were the first petrol pumps, while the introduction of Essolube in sealed ;lass bottles met with instant success. A large range of by-products are handled by the Company, one of the most important being “Standard Bitumen,” which is used as a road-binding material. In England it is usually sent out in the steel drums which are a familiar sight where road repairs are in progress. This method of packing is, however, uneconomical where large quantities are to be handled, so for

export purposes it is transported in specially constructed tank steamers. The bitumen is raised to 400° F. by steam pipes, is pumped into the tankers from the Company’s plant at Fawley, near Southampton, and is maintained in a fluid condition by steam coils on the vessels, and can thus be pumped out of the tankers at the terminal port with the minimum of handling and delay.
