2008 Iron Pour

Tapping the cupola. There's a passage in the chamber's internal refractory lining, blocked by a wad of fireclay, or a similar material.
When the charge is ready, the dam is chipped out with a bar, and the iron allowed to pour into the ladle.
Note the "sluice" is also lined with refractory.
