Water-jacketing in this portion of the furnace is indeed an essential for modern conditions, and consequently rapid driving and quiet internal settling in the same area are quite incompatible. The modern fore-hearth, on the other hand, is accessible and easy of repair, and in the event of any trouble occurring therein, the furnace itself can continue its smelting activity to the full, since other suitable arrangements can readily be made for temporarily dealing with the products. (c) The functions of the blast furnace in the modern smelting scheme are particularly dependent upon the employment of the external settler in conjunction with it. The work of the furnace plant is to produce as rapidly as possible, a supply of suitable grade matte for the Fig. 10.--Water-Jacketed Blast Furnace (-inches by 00 inches).

Co.). converters; large quantities of hot fluid matte must be available at a moment's notice, and such demands are often very erratic, being dependent on the working of the converter plant and the refining furnaces. It is essential to the successful operation of the blast furnaces that the manager should be in a position to work his furnace as rapidly and continuously as possible, which is best attained by making the output independent of irregular tappings of matte just when required by the converter department.
