It has always struck me that the chemical reaction was not completed in the nuggets which was why the stuff was gassing off in electric furnaces and doing damage to any fireclays or silica laden refractories. So, I would have been surprised to hear it didn't have bubbles back then. Brown is not a common color for an unmelted batch additive but it is certainly a color I might expect from some refractories that are iron rich.

This is essentially showing that the defects are in every month but december & january. That's a lot of defects to be shipping.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
