Origin of tuyère
Examples from the Web for tuyere
The steam enters through the tubulure, A, and finds its way around the periphery of a tuyere, D.
Directly below the tuyere is an opening through which the ashes that drop from the fire may be cleaned out.
The harder the air is driven into the fire above the tuyere the more oxygen is furnished and the hotter the fire becomes.
Danger of explosion: Coal gases leak into the tuyere when the blast is shut off.
But the principle of the tuyere, where the blast enters the forge, is the same as we blacksmiths have always used.
