After this month we will be pulling this guy off line and doing a rebuild to switch into SP batch. It is just time not because we are switching glass more just happens to be the right time for a new pot. Should be interesting to get a look at the inside after a solid 1 and 1/2 on C-cullet as one of the first ones to drop the dime on melting it back when Pete first got it in town. I like the glass but based on the amount of damage to the Moly slots at the top I am more than interested to do a full assessment of the furnace after pulling the crown off.
Y'all lost power from Gordon?
Please keep us updated on the furnace.
