ROLLING MILL

This two-high rolling mill, installed 1873, consists of a roughing stand and two finishing stands, a bar and a rod section. At the end of the same train a so called universal mill was added in 1883 capable of rolling all the four sides simultaneously. The mill was originally powered by twin water turbines. The coal fuelled bloom reheating furnace has been dismantled. In 1950 the water turbine was replaced by an electric motor.
The hot bloom is introduced to the largest gap.

The iron bars dimensions are reduced as they are moved to smaller and smaller gap.

The end product was often a bar  3" x 5/8" sometimes cut down in 35 cm pieces.
