Dyson Thermal Technologies, Stannington nr Sheffield

Dyson Thermal Technologies manufacture high performance Zirconia (Zirconium Oxide) and Tin Oxide refractory ceramics (at least that’s what it says on their website).

They do this by taking some powder, mixing it up a bit, squishing it into shapes then cooking it in a big oven called a kiln. (This bit isn’t on the website )

For some reason they stopped doing the mixing, squishing and cooking thing in this beautiful bit of Sheffield and decided to go do it somewhere else instead. Bad news for the people who worked here, but good news for us lot who like to poke our noses where we shouldn’t.

Not a bad little mooch I suppose, but for some reason I couldn’t really raise that much enthusiasm for it.
