    • n dissolver In paper-making and other industries, a machine for dissolving, purifying, freeing from acids, and otherwise treating salts, chemicals, clays, colors, and paper pulp in water or other liquids. It consists of a large metal vessel having a bowl-shaped bottom and fitted with a horizontal turbine supported by an upright spindle passing through the bottom of the vessel. The clay, colors, chemicals, or other materials to be treated are placed in the vessel with the required amount of water to give the desired mixture or solution. By means of a belt to a pulley on the spindle the turbine is revolved at a high speed. This sets up a rapid motion in the liquid, drawing it downward in the center into the turbine and throwing it violently outward from the turbine against the sides of the vessel. The concave sides cause the liquid to move upward in a spiral path till again swept downward through the wheel. The rapid motion and attrition against the sides of the vessel disintegrate and dissolve the material, insoluble matter falling to the bottom and the solution being then drawn off.
