Iron Experiment - Oct 2015

large pic »
Beginning of the smelt. Note the thermocouples in place on the left side. Four are visible in this photo, a fifth was added after a couple of hours directly below the tuyere. Note also the nearly flat top surface - that would change later. Construction here is turf with dirt packing into the bank.
