AT the discussion on “Fluxes and Slags in Non Ferrous Metal Melting and Working,” held by the Faraday Society and the Institute of Metals on Monday, April 28, in the hall of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, many papers were presented relating to different aspects of the use of fluxes. Prof. T. Turner presided over the first session, mainly devoted to melting operations, and Sir Robert Robertson over the second, which was concerned with welding and soldering and with the influence of non-metallic inclusions on the mechanical properties of metals.
