NU UPDATE

POSTED 26 May 2016

LONG WEEKEND

Tireless dedication and commitment from our team as a full scheduled work weekend is ahead. With refractory repairs completed, re-installing and reassembling of the electrodes, thermocouples and auxiliary equipment commences. Key testing, fault finding will be conducted by the team as well as our electrical engineer who will be overseeing checks on the software system that controls the furnace. Keeping to schedule, the commissioning heat up is due next week. After all this, Monday's holiday will be welcome.

POSTED: 24th May 2016

REFURBISHMENT UNDERWAY & ON SCHEDULE

During our routine maintenance inspection the Nulife team, (that one could compare to a team of archaeologists) have been excavating and preparing the furnace for refurbishment.

The refractory specialists arrived on site first thing this Monday morning and are busy for the next three carrying out essential repairs to the glass melter. Whilst this is going on, the Nulife team can begin refitting the furnace insulators and bracing bars.

With any maintenance service there is a lot of preparation work required. Over the last month the team have been busy cleaning the baghouse air exhaust Hepa filter system; finalising any modifications to auxiliary equipment; electrical checks including thermocouples; draining and reinstalling the chiller radiator and fan for the water cooling system; cleaning and refurbishing the electrodes; inventory and re-ordering spares. The list of detail is endless.

Pb PURITY

With the initial first quarter trials of running our CRT recycling furnace, recent laboratory results report lead purity of 99.87%. Many other tests for in put and out put material are in progress and essential for measuring furnace performance.

"1st SERVICE" for DUNKIRK FURNACE

As well as collating data that indicates performance levels, our first planned furnace routine maintenance inspection is underway. With a controlled furnace power down and the glass melter drained, essential inspections for wear and tear and routine refurbishment are being undertaken.

VIRGINIA FACILITY RECRUITING

The CRT process at our Bristol VA facility is underway and we are actively recruiting more employees and are seeking another sixteen positions now to meet demand.

ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL

Meanwhile Nulife team continue CRT dismantling and preparing panel glass aggregate for our concrete building blocks. Our team take advantage of the milder climate to produce the retaining wall blocks which are 85% glass and weigh 4,300lb for a customer order.

21st Century Alchemy in NY

Long journey toward and long journey going forward. The Nulife team is delighted to report that metallic lead (Pb) is being extracted from CRT glass in our first U.S. CRT recycling furnace. There have been many significant moments but this has to be the one; after many years of planning to bring the technology to the U.S. recycling industry and demonstrate that lead is a valuable resource that can truly be extracted out of CRT glass. With all the anticipation, debate and discussion surrounding CRT glass, this significant moment can only strengthen the view that this material is certainly a commodity with inherent value and a future.

HAPPY NU YEAR

An exciting moment indeed for all the team as the first glass flows from the forehearth.

glass flows from the forehearth

To summarise the last few weeks following the gas start up it is worth noting that commissioning the furnace is a phased and lengthy process. During this period refractory is put through an expansion schedule; all the electrical systems are live tested and any potential glitches resolved; PLC control systems to operate the furnace are fine tuned. All these calibrated phases are required before a single pound of glass is loaded into the furnace.

As the gas burners remain on, the initial loading of panel glass into the furnace is done according to a planned glass batching schedule. Gradually as the volume of material is increased the electrodes are activated and the switch from gas to electricity occurs. The gas burner removed, the furnace operates solely on electricity.

POSTED: 15 DECEMBER 2015

THE HEAT IS ON

At 3.00pm EST, Dunkirk NY had its own significant moment as the first U.S. Nulife Glass CRT recycling furnace began its heat up. The initial stages of the furnace commissioning is a very critical and exciting time. After many months of construction and project challenges the furnace is on.

Nulife Glass CRT recycling furnace began its heat up

The heat treating engineers arrived in the early hours to set up their gas monitoring equipment and lengthy gas pipes to connect the furnace to the propane supply. Meanwhile the Nulife team were doing final checks on the water flow system and prepare the heat up and expansion schedule. The process is methodical and takes place hourly during the heat and furnace expansion. The bracing bolts are checked for movement and slight adjustments are made by hand or using a torque wrench to control the bolt tension.

Quantum leaps have been made over the last few days as things prepare to hot up at the Nulife facility in Dunkirk. The Nulife team are making final checks on the water flows for the cooling system as well as final testing on the electrical control wiring. All systems are go as the propane gas was delivered today in preparation for the furnace commissioning process. The engineers will begin the furnace heat up tomorrow. Exciting times indeed as the long awaited Nulife first USA based CRT recycling plant is commissioned.

KEEPING FOCUSED

With the recent flurry of CRT industry press and certification downstream approval being challenged it would be all too easy to be distracted and consumed by opinion that requires a lengthy, considered and thought out response.

So with this in mind, our work focus is fully on the completion and commissioning of our CRT recycling furnace. The progress may outwardly appear to be slowing up as the blogs are less frequent but our team tirelessly push on making daily adjustments and correcting discrepancies that naturally occur when working from plan to reality. Thermocouples that provide furnace temperature readings are being fitted with respective wiring completed this week; the muffle elements and connectors that provide heat to the forehearths have also been fitted.

The long awaited main transformer arrived yesterday; this is a critical component for the electrical system. Meanwhile many other tasks have been accomplished: hanging the charger door; mounting the glass charger onto the furnace platform; assembling the security cages for all the transformers and finally all the melter electrodes are installed. These took some careful planning and skilful handling; no photos to show as the build progresses pictorial reporting becomes sensitive. What remains is lot of wiring and connecting to to bring it all live.

After several industrious, noisy productive weeks, the plant seems eerily quiet today. The furnace crown was completed last Thursday and Friday morning after finalising the last details our refractory contractors packed up their tricks and headed home for Halloween. Our treat is to see a job well done and the furnace built.

With the water cooling system in place, this leaves the main power and electrical systems and mechanical auxiliary equipment to be installed.

NULIFE'S CRT GLASS RECYCLING FURNACE IS NOW TAKING SHAPE

Posted: 28th July, 2015

More than a year in planning, design and modifications, Nulife's CRT glass recycling furnace is now taking shape and becoming a reality.

The glass de-leading furnace previously installed at Nulife's test site in Manchester, England, was shipped to Nulife's Dunkirk site last year, during this time various imported furnace components have been customized for U.S. compatibility.

Additional furnace parts are on order and in fabrication, including electrical components, refractories and other timeline critical components.

Our UK furnace technology specialists and designers recently returned from a business trip to the USA meeting with our specialist suppliers to ensure production is on track and finalising delivery schedules.

With existing steel furnace parts being re-engineered off site, contractors have been on site to mark out centrelines in preparation for the foundation furnace steel parts to be installed this coming week.

Whilst the new CRT recycling furnace build has been much anticipated a lot has been going on behind the scenes at our Dunkirk facility.

Plans to construct a new CRT negative air pressure dismantling room is in progress, as well as refurbishment of offices and employee facilities.

For the last month contractors along with Nulife employees have been digging and laying foundations for new access roads around the site.
