Abstract:
The first use of petroleum as fuel for mechanical purposes was at the refineries of the oil companies, where by-products were used under broilers and for heating. The first application in furnances at factories insured by the Associated Factory Mutual Fire Insurance Companies was about 1888. The introduction, however, was gradual.
