I work in a sulfuric acid refinery. We have H2S, SO2, SO3, N2, CO2, H2SO4 just to start. Not good on the lungs or overall health. Our main products are 93%, 99%, 104.5% sulfuric acid. We run 1800* furnaces with catalysis beds running 1100*. Mix the heat with cooling tower moisture and holy cow it's hot in August. I can't imagine a steel furnace heat!

heat is funny because everybody tolerates its different.seen alot of people fall out from heat stroke(very serious) and just get crazy mad from the heat. seen some terrible accidents very dangerous.you learned to work smart real fast and get off the brick.guys used to put strips of car tires on their boots to help but all that did is give you bad habits by staying in it.in winter 20 below right on lake erie you would work in just ppe and a light shirt it felt good.as bad as it was i would of never left if it didnt shut down. good people,crazy people,like family its not a normal job.
