The 2500-pound rotor of the

the mill closed, flew to -pieces

The heavy casting surrounding
the machine was also wrecked.
What caused the accident is
,not known. The rotor was of
cast iron, while present prac
tice is to make' them of cast
steel. It was running at a rate
of 900 revolutions per minute,
which gave a velocity of some
11,000 feet per second to the
outer rim of the rotor. Centri
fugal force would cause the
breaking of the wheel as soon
as a -weakness developed.
