Batteries

June 26, 1944

This is a final manufacturing operation in the making of battery separators.

Here, hot water is poured on the material to insure the removal of any or all foreign matter.

It is then cut in the required size where it is automatically fed to a drying machine, which may be seen in the upper right hand corner, at the Providence plant of United States Rubber Company.

Alex Affredil is shown at the hot water controls.
