For fluxing purposes domestic fluorspar is superior to the foreign product.

Common garnet, where abundant, has sometimes been used as a fluxing agent in metallurgical operations.

But if the Fluxing shou'd not cease of it self at the time when it ought, he must be purg'd to put a stop thereto.

Limestone is quarried at Buxton, Millersdale and Matlock for lime, fluxing and chemical purposes.

The felspar or China stone furnish the fluxing ingredients for fusing and binding.

At a low temperature such constituents as lime and iron are not much affected, but at a greater heat they act as fluxing agents.

Their fluxing action does not depend on the removal of silicon as fluoride.

All such things no longer are, for they were forms, manifestations of fluxing matter ere they melted into the flux again.
