Eyre, J W (1960) Steel Melting in a Pilot Plant Shaft Furnace. In: Symposium on Pilot Plant Shaft Furnace, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedplur.
One of the present authors, in a paper to the Iron and Steel Institute in 1954 entitled "The Future of Steel Melting", re-introduced the idea of continuous counterflow steel melting. In this paper it was stated that a suitable counterflow furnace, in which the heat of the waste gases from a melt-ing chamber is used to preheat the charge in a counter current system, could attain thermal efficiencies of the order of 70%, compared with the maximum possible effic-iency of 50% for the existing open hearth furnace.
