History of tank degassers

I'm looking for some information, dates, as to when ladle tank degassing was
put into service on a commercial scale. Also, when did reheating of the
ladle in the degasser (Vacuum Arc Degasser) come on line.
Thanks for your help

A quick google search turned up that vacuum arc degassing dates from the mid sixties. See the sample pages from the book, The Making shaping and Treating of Steel at
