Calumite Ltd

Calumite Limited supplies glass makers in the UK and overseas with Calumite, a refined blast furnace slag. Calumite is a glassy calcium-alumina-silicate that is used as a raw material in all types of soda-lime-silica glasses. Less energy is required to melt a Calumite containing batch, which can be used to reduce energy consumption, reduce furnace temperatures or increase furnace pull. In addition, Calumite is a refining agent, containing sulphur as sulphide which works to reduce seed count and improve glass quality.

Many glass making terms have entered the language: 'Shut yer gob': a molten lump of glass is called a 'gob' to which the glass blower attached a tube to blow the glass into shape. The blower had to blow hard which made his cheeks very large. Today someone with a big mouth is told they have a big gob.
