GIGABIT FIBER TO CATEGORY 5 COPPER CONVERTER enables cost-efficient LAN/MAN gigabit deployment.
Copper converter practice at Tamano(11) and operational performance at Kosaka(12), Glogow(13), Guixi(14), Ronnskar(15) and Kidd Creek(16) were also covered, along with new developments at Refimet(17), Chino(18), Naoshima(19) and Horne(20) plus a number of papers on gas handling and sulphur fixation.
The hot, de-zinced matte flows from the low pressure vessel into the upper furnace where it is oxidised with top blown oxygen to regenerate copper metal from copper sulphide and oxidise iron sulphide to slag (as in a copper converter).
