The principal features are: an upright chamber, in the top of which is an opening for introducing the material, equipped with a door to close the opening air-tight; a hopper-shaped bottom to the chamber, discharging into the delivery duct; a pipe through which compressed air enters the chamber above the mass of concrete within, to propel it into the duct, and another pipe delivering compressed air at or near the discharge or lower end of the hopper.

27 F.2d 668, reversed.

27 F.2d 838, affirmed.
