The Thompson smelter has three unique features which form the basis of its design: fluid bed roasters which treat nickel concentrate filter cake from the mill, as well as the flux, jn order to achieve partial desulphurization; the use of electric furnaces for the smelting of t he partially desulphurized, preheated roaster product; and the disposal of slag by water granulation and slag slurry pumping.
