Peel Jones continues to further improve the life of its tuyeres

Working as primary copper tuyere, cooler and plate supplier withs its long time customer TATA IJmuiden, Peel Jones report progress on a trial to further increase the longevity of the custom made tuyeres supplied there:

"6 Calorized Tuyeres on trial with them have been in the furnace for 160 days and are showing no signs of any problems" confirmed Director Peter Garner.  

This protection system, already popular in North America complements the advanced glass casting system long used for TATA IJmuiden and unparalleled in delivering consistently smooth cooling channels. Ceramic and overlay options are also available and provided in various combinations to a long list of satisfied customers. As a leading primary & secondary supplier to most global steelmaker groups, the Peel Jones technical group continues to push product development as part of its Continuous improvement strategy.

EVERY CLOUD HAS A SILVER LINING: More good news for its customers is that the current pound sterling exchange rate has weakened and thus translates into "the lowest dollar and euro denominated prices seen for many years" continued Mr. Garner. This allows existing customers to increase spares and standby stocks and for potential customers to run trials at greatly reduced costs.
