Summary

A chimney flue setting installed in a container glass furnace at Chattanooga Glass Co. was removed after 30 mo operation, and a change in ownership of the company made it desirable to reinstall the setting in a Diamond-Bathurst furnace in Corsicana, TX. Some of the brick were found to be only superficially attacked so therefore practically all of them were reinstalled. Details of the operation and a laboratory study of selected specimens are presented. The brick have now operated satisfactorily for another 13 mo at the new location.
