English term or phrase: Slag operation and iron beaching
Hello all, I'm translating (ENG>SPAN) a contract between two siderurgic companies and I've found the following paragraph:

This agreement determines the rights and obligations of the PARTIES related to the delivery, by the contractor to the CLIENT, of the services summarised below:
- Torpedoes cleaning and dumping
- Pig iron beaching and breaking,
- Slag cooling, digging and transportation,
- Metal recovery
- Internal Transports of slag and scraps
- Underfurnace BOF areas cleaning,
- Convertor wrecking and cleaning.

I'm facing difficulties with the technical terms like "iron beaching" and the rest. Could you help me please?
