MAINTENANCE

The working week was Monday to Saturday morning, the men worked 12 hour shifts in very hot conditions. Every Monday the pans had to be de-scaled as the build up of salt would retain heat and damage the iron plates. A jigger lifted the pan so that the pan and flues could be checked and repaired if necessary.

29. Each Monday morning the lump pans were de-scaled and the flues checked, ready for the week's firing. 1963 murg.jpg
