Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON TRUSSES FOR THE ALUMINUM BRASS AND BRONZE COMPANY, AT BRIDGEPORT, CONN. 1 | I HE CUT on the opposite page represents a general outline of the buildings of the Aluminum Brass and Bronze Company, at ® J[® Bridgeport, Conn., but owing to the limited amount of space, we are unable to show the entire layout of their buildings, which are probably as well, if not the best designed manufacturing buildings for the purpose intended, to be found in this country. The main mill is 84 feet wide and 267 feet long, with a hot mill 76 by 70 feet at one end, and on the opposite diagonal corner, a muffle room, 84 feet wide by 120 feet long, the whole connected together in such a way that there are no partition walls or columns between the different buildings, the roof trusses being arranged to support the overhead work, leaving access between the different rooms clear and uninterrupted. In one corner, next to the muffle room and opening through, is the shipping room, and opposite to the muffle room is the boiler house, with a fire-proof wall between this and the main mill, which fire-proof wall extends to the peak of the roof, thus cutting off the danger of any mischance fire originating from the boilers. These trusses are all designed to carry heavy shafting, and over certain portions of the mill, to carry such loads of machinery as are necessary in moving rolls, etc. The trusses are connected by wooden purlins, and covered with matched boards and silicate covering. The side walls are of brick, 16 inches thick, except at the point supporting the roof trusses, which are thickened by a pilaster on the outside to 24 inches. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
