Plasma Converter Copper Coolers Fitted

25th February 2020

The refractory lining the plasma furnace is progressing well.  The copper coolers have been installed in the furnace base and the lining of the roof is nearly complete. A layer of refractory will be applied to the coolers and the refractory will be cured before the complete furnace is assembled.

The water-cooled copper cooler freezes the melted ash that accumulates at the base of the furnace to continually create an insulating layer of solid slag. The melted slag attacks refractory and this freeze-line design allows the furnace to operate continuously for longer.
