Note on the Preliminary Firing of Tank Furnaces
T147-T148 (2 pages)
In September last I had the pleasure of a visit from Mr T. Connolly and Dr W. E. S. Turner. Amongst the many subjects which were discussed was that of the preliminary firing of tank furnaces prior to charging them with batch. Both Mr Connolly and Dr Turner were strong advocates of heating up the furnace to as high a temperature as possible prior to charging in any cullet at all, in order that the tank blocks may become previously vitrified and therefore more resistant to the action of glass. Mr Connolly indeed, said that he himself at his works had tried this practice and believed strongly in it.
