Technology and the production of sheets

The thick bar of steel that came out of the steam hammer was reheated once or twice to make it more ductile and manageable, and it was passed under pressure in the rolling trains between rollers or cylinders which turned at the same velocity and in opposite directions, transforming in this way the softened iron bar into circles, squares, rails, wheels, plates and all kinds of profiles.

 

Technology and the foundry production.

Cast iron or the separated iron that came out of the bottom of the crucible of the blast furnace was poured into the prepared grooves that were in the floor of the plaza, situated at the very foot of the mouth of the furnace. This casting, once cooled, was separated into equal blocks called ingots, which were once again melted in the cups located between the two blast furnaces. Finally, the melted steel was emptied into moulds in order to create the desired melted piece. Currently there are very few references about the production of the Saint Blas factory; it is known that from one oven 2,185 tonnes of cast iron were obtained in the year of 1851, and 1,044 in the year of 1859.
