The American apparatus made after the Bramah system we shall briefly consider here.
The continuous system of preparing water for bottling purposes has been in use for many years in foreign countries, but has, up to the present, received but little attention here from its more complicated character; also from the reason that bottling-works fitted with the continuous system are much more expensive as a rule. However, it is only a question of time when the continuous apparatus will, to some extent, replace the apparatus now in use, and our home manufacturers have already commenced to put up apparatus on the continuous system - English plan.
