Abbott Furnace Ships Munitions Treatment Unit
Abbott Furnace Company shipped the first of two munitions treatment units for a chemical demilitarization project in Pueblo, Colo. The Pueblo plant, which is currently under construction, will destroy a stockpile of chemical weapons containing mustard agent. The munitions treatment unit will destroy any trace amounts of mustard agent that may remain on the munitions after they have been drained and neutralized. Abbott Furnace used its continuous-belt furnace technology for the application.
