In the event that condensation shall be adopted as a method of destroying offensive odors or gases, the method of condensation employed shall be as follows:
Every rendering establishment shall use tank or other suitable airtight condensing appliances for condensers. The said appliances shall have an overflow connecting with a sewer, and shall have a feed water pipe of sufficient diameter by which a continuous stream of cold water shall pass into the condenser and
escape through the said overflow at or near the top. All gases generated in the process of boiling shall be carried to and entered into the bottom of and under the body of water contained by said condenser. Such gases as are not condensed in the water shall be carried through another pipe connected with the top of the condenser, to the boilers or other places where heat of not less than 600 degrees Fahrenheit is maintained, and shall there pass through such fire and be consumed. While the condenser is in use, it shall be obligatory on the part of the user to allow sufficient water to flow through the condenser to maintain a temperature not higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
A condenser of the spray, jet or other suitable pattern shall be connected with all dryers, and a fan or pump shall draw the vapors from the dryer and force them through such-condenser, the water from which shall pass into the sewer, and a sufficient quantity of water shall be used to condense thoroughly any and all vapors and odors conveyed thereto.
To the end that a proper inspection may be readily made by the authorities of the temperature maintained in such condensers there shall be attached to each of such condensers an automatic or self-registering thermometer of such a character as will automatically keep a daily record of the temperature maintained in each such condenser at all times during the use thereof.
