Install tuyeres and grout with high temperature mortar.
Examples of tuyeres were recovered (Figure 4) and their clamping points to the furnace walls were also recorded.
What if the company could install an entirely new melting system that would satisfy its environmental needs while at the same time saving it money by eliminating the scrubber system, water cooled tuyeres and permits associated with the cupola?
As well as iron slag, there were tuyeres and several elongated clay structures, with a burnt internal surface.
A complete evaluation of the entire system by Kuttner engineers led to other upgrades that ultimately increased cupola efficiency, such as installing a 1,000F hot blast recuperator, redesigning the water cooled tuyeres and adding a new melt zone refractory lining to make the coke combustion and melting process more cost-effective.
The third mill, built in 787 [+ or -] 1 AD was an impressive drystone structure with associated finds that included wooden paddles and mill stones, bucket staves, tool handles, fragments of lathe turned bowls, ironworking slag, tuyeres and crucible pieces.
Kuttner installed a 1,050F (566C) hot blast recuperator, redesigned the water cooled tuyeres and added a new melt zone refractory lining to make the combustion and melting processes more efficient.
With PCI, finely pulverised coal dust is injected into the blast furnace through the hot blast tuyeres.
