Abstract

We received this morning the samples of the slag you so kindly sent us and are much disappointed att he resuts as no practical benefit appears to be derived from the separation. We could not expect very much fro the Mill Scale, Mill Cinder and converter Spittings as they are already in fair shape to go to the Blast Furnace but we did hope that the Ladle and Cupola Slags would be susceptible to treatment as at present the Iron they contain is a total loss for these slags go direct to the dump##We presume the presence of Mn. may effect the separation or possibly the samples sent were particularly clean ones.##If you made any analysis of the original samples we would be pleased to receive them as we could tell from those whetehr or not the samples were average ones.##Thanking you for sending us the results and regretting that they were not more satisfactory we remain.
