with carbonic acid.

S7i,201— December 6, 1887. C. V. PETRAEUS. Process of making acid potassium

Impure acid phosphate of lime, produced by decomposing bone or similar
phosphate with a suitable acid and leaching, is decomposed by sulphate of pot-
ash; then carbonate of potash or caustic potash is added in excess, that is, in
sufficient quantity to form in the solution an acid phosphate of potash contain-
ing an excess of potash over that in the dihydrogen potassium phosphate: and,
after filtration, the solution is evaporated to crystallization.

389,586— September 18, 1888. C. GLASER. Process of making acid phosphate.

Insoluble phosphoric acid contained in mineral and petrified phosphates is
converted into available phosphoric acid by finely pulverizing the mineral and
then applying phosphoric acid directly thereto. The ground mineral may be
divided into 2 parts, and the phosphoric acid extracted from 1 portion, by any
method, and applied to the other portion.

with phosphoric acid, and then withdrawing the charged lime and subjecting
it to slow cooling. It is pulverized and used as a fertilizer.

142,793— October 15, 1889. J.REESE. Process of making phosphates.

In the manufacture of calcium phosphate from phosphoritic iron, the molten
phosphoritic iron is blown with an air blast, in a basic-lined vessel and in the
presence of lime additions, until the phosphorus has been reduced to not less
than one-half of 1 per cent (but little iron being oxidized when the phos-
phorus is in excess thereof ), when the phosphate so formed is withdrawn. After
lime is charged to the desired amount of phosphorus it is withdrawn and-a
charge of fresh lime added, whereby phosphates having any desired percentage
of phosphoric acid may be produced.

427,520 — December 21,, 1889. C. GLASER. Process of making acid phosphate.

Mineral and petrified phosphates are ground and exposed to the action of
dilute phosphoric acid, and the moisture subsequently evaporated; the amount
of acid used is theoretically insufficient to convert all of the tricalcic phos-
phate (or corresponding compounds) into monocalcic phosphate, but exceeds
the theoretical amount necessary to convert the same into bicalcic phosphate,
thus forming a mixture of monocalcic and bicalcic phosphates, or equivalents.
(See No. 389,566.)

1,18,259— December 31, 1889. C. E. D. WINSSINGER. Process of making bicalcic


In the production of bicalcic phosphates, a mother liquor of monocalcic
phosphate of lime is produced by forming a phosphoric-acid solution— by treat-
ing suitable phosphatic material with an excess of sulphuric acid— filtering, and
treating the solution with carbonate of lime, or milk of lime, to convert it into
a monocalcic-phosphate solution free from iron, etc. The solid residue from
the filtration may be treated with a phosphoric-acid solution and sulphate of
lime obtained as a by-product. The monocalcic solution is converted into a
monosodic solution by treatment with sulphate of soda, which is then treated
with carbonate of soda, and the resulting neutral solution is treated with lime;
the phosphate of lime separated from the resulting caustic-soda solution (a by-
product), and the separated phosphate treated with an aqueous monocalcic
solution, and the bicalcic phosphate separated.
445,567— February S, 1891. A. MEMMINGER. Process of making acid phosphates.

The drying of a compound of phosphatic material and acid is accelerated by
adding thereto a fluoride compound, as calcium fluoride, and the drying period
is graduated by comminuting to a definite degree and adding a greater or less
proportion of the fluoride compound, or by varying the degree of comminution.
US,815— February 17,1891. C. GLASER. Process of making alkaline phosphates.

Pure phosphates of the alkalis are obtained from crude commercial phos-
phoric acid by decomposing the salt of an alkali and an acid volatile at higher
temperature (as nitrate of soda) by fusing same with crude commercial phos-
phoric acid in excess of the amount required to form a pyrophosphate; then
dissolving the fused mass in water and boiling until conversion of meta and pyro
phosphoric acid is effected; then treating with the carbonate of an alkali (or
free alkali) till alkaline reaction is obtained; and finally separating the solution
from insoluble impurities and crystallizing.
A9S,889— March HI, 1893. S. L. GOODALE. Method of treating hydrated phosphates

of alumina.

heat in suitable receptacles until all the water of constitution is expelled or

is arrested and the mass cooled before unfavorable molecular rearrangement is

502,424— August 1,1893. H. PRECHT. Process of obtaining meta or pyro phosphoric-
acid combinations.

To produce a soluble potassium phosphate the insoluble potassium metaphos-
phate is melted and rapidly cooled to prevent crystallization. A basic body as
