The excavation revealed two heavily damaged furnaces forming a pair (as per six of the seven excavated between Saprim and Taluy in 2010), a tuyere of complete circumference and several medium-sized (100-150 mm) pieces of dense black slag.
If the tuyere submergence is shallower than 300 mm, bubbles may break through the bath surface and form a vertical channel.
Other variables manipulated in this study were the water pump power, well depth, the number of days per year the water pump has been working, the area of lands irrigated by the pump, and the pump tuyere size.
Pour ce travail, il convient de bien degager la tuyere de la forge, puis de constituer dans la couche inferieure du charbon une petite excavation en forme d'entonnoir d'environ 20 cm de diametre.
The winning entry illustrates a blast furnace piping system composed of stave cooling, tuyere (nozzle) cooling and PCI (pulverized coal injection) piping.
The bricks remained intact during rough handling when charged into the cupola and were still intact as they descended to the tuyere windows, where temperatures reached 3,000F (1,550C).
Initially the ore was smelted into "pigs" in one of 30 scattered peat and coal fuelled hearth furnaces, akin to a blacksmith's forge, the air being forced through a tuyere by water-powered bellows.
This is indicated by the discovery of various metal objects and metal smelting residues such as nails, slag, tuyere, dross, fragments of copper and bronze, and bronze Buddha images.
The 1991 trial also included tuyere injection of oxygen in the smelting area just above bath level, to test the feasibility of maintaining the necessary reaction temperatures in the face of high heat demand for iron and lead reduction reactions.
