Cupola Reconstruction

We are glad to announce that Funosa carried out a profound modernization of its melting plant during the month of August 2014 .
This important project has been successfully completed and well within the planned time span. Early in August the cupola head was removed and the scrapping of the old cupola shaft and siphons was carried out, removing tons of steel and refractory materials. On August 5th the new pre-constructed Cupola shaft and new siphons arrived by truck.

On August the 7th the new shaft was lifted and together with the new siphons, were put in their place, see center image.

After welding and mounting the different parts together, the refractory material was put into place during the third week of August. When Funosa re-opened for business on August on the 26th, the new cupola had already been fired up and was ready for daily duty for the next decade or so.

Our aims of increased homogeneity of raw iron quality and improved process stability have been reached. This helps us to maintain and improve our quality level for now and well into the future.
