The tube sheets are secured to the end sections by means of collar studs, the flanges being flush with each other. These studs also serve to secure the heads. The tube sheets are in pairs, so that the tube holes match. They are carefully lined in place, so that the tubes shall go in fair. Then the bolt holes are marked from those already drilled in one of the match flanges, generally the tube sheet, and the sheets are taken away and these holes drilled. The interior of the condenser is then fitted up with a scattering or deflecting plate supported by angles, and hangers are fitted directly under the main exhaust nozzle to prevent the steam striking directly on the tubes, and forcing it towards the end of the condenser. Two supporting plates for the tubes are put in, being each drilled to correspond with a little more than one-half of the tube sheets. These are placed about 2 inches apart, near the centers of length of the condenser, and are secured by lugs cast in them and bolted to the body of the middle section of the condenser. These plates serve to give each tube a support near its center and prevent rattling and sagging of the tubes. Another deflecting plate is put in below the top scattering plate, but it may possibly be useless except so far as it serves to stiffen the supporting plates, which are secured to its edges and which do not need other special stiffening. All parts of the condenser are of composition except the rivets, which are of copper. The above parts being finished, the tube sheets are secured in place and stiffened by four stay rods and socket tubes. These rods are of Tobin bronze 3/4 inch diameter. A board is bolted over one end of the condenser to prevent the tubes being driven out while being packed and the tubes are packed, firs...
