Furnace Roof Sent for Refractory Lining

14th February 2020

The roof of the plasma furnace has been sent to the North West for refractory lining. Its is expected that lining and curing will take around two weeks.  The roof will then be shipped back for the final assembly of the furnace.

The unlined roof weighs around eight tonnes. It is a complex shape and the installation of the castable refractory requires specialised equipment and highly skilled engineers.  The base of the furnace is too large to transport and will be lined on site.
