This article describes the blast furnace lining and cooling
concept as originally developed and applied by Hoogovens (Corus
IJmuiden). The technology has also been applied by Danieli
Corus in all its blast furnace projects executed in the last
of the Blast Furnaces at ISG Cleveland
Jeffrey L. Drummond,
manager — operations, ISG Cleveland Inc., Cleveland,
the shutdown of the old LTV Corp. facility, ISG Cleveland
implemented an asset protection plan for restarting the furnaces.
This article provides a brief overview of the start-up plan,
as well as the expectations for the new company culture and
its effect on iron producing.

replacement of a snort valve at WCI Steel involved an industry
survey as well as a look back at previous WCI experiences.
Selection criteria and installation details for the new snort
valve, silencer and operator are discussed.

Web-based computer model that provides mass- energy balance
analysis also considers the effects of nonequilibrium conditions
that often occur in blast furnace reactions. The model provides
information to determine the validity of instrumentation data,
identify the casuses of furnace upsets and guide furnace operation.
Taphole Practice With a Two-taphole Blast Furnace

specialist, Frank Hribljan, maintenance specialist, and Brian
Boettcher, operations specialist, Dofasco Inc., Hamilton, Ont.,
No. 4 blast furnace, a two-taphole furnace, adopted an alternating
taphole casting practice in the mid-1990s. The constraints
of a single-taphole practice, efforts to maximize two-taphole
availability and the change in casthouse practices are discussed.
