Even the workers wear silver 'aprons' to deflect the heat.
Terms used during production are also reminiscent of a hot stove.
The 'pots' in one part, the metal is 'skimmed' in another.
The metal itself is first made in 'pots' of which there are 316.
It is these 'pots' which were affected when the metal cooled at the time of the fire.
Around a third were saved and the other 211 are in the process of being cleaned out.
Cat food tins
The finished metal comes out in either billet, used for window and door frames and produced by pouring molten metal into seven metre deep channels, or rolling ingot, used for everything from tin foil to cat food tins.
In fact the rolling ingot does look like giant grey-coloured chocolate bars.
At the time of the fire workers rushed in to work to try and help.
It was a 'do you remember what you were doing when the fire broke out' kind of scenario.
The MD was jogging along a path by the plant when he saw smoke.
"I though 'that doesn't look right' so I sprinted back home, and as I got there the phone was ringing."
Team leader Meirion Taylor was on his way out when he saw the smoke.
"I never imagined it was from here, I thought it was a house fire or something.
"It was one of the biggest shocks of my life," he added.
Production manager Claire Archer said she heard the news in a phone call.
"It has been a challenge over the past three months," she said.
Despite the difficulties however the company is optimistic about the future.
"It is no exaggeration to say that grown men walked out of here in tears on the night of the fire," said Mr Bloor.
"Many thought that was the end, and it was a shock.
"But there is a bright future for aluminium."
The issue of power still has to be sorted out however, and is "basically a commercial issue".
The plant is currently run on electricity produced by the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station situated nearby.
Wylfa is due to close in 2010 however, and as yet there has been no decision on whether a Wylfa B may be built - or indeed any another source of electricity.
"We are looking at any and every option to get alternative power," said Mr Bloor.
"There is a huge demand for aluminium around the world though, especially in China and India.
"There is no reason (for Anglesey Aluminium) not to go on for another 30-40 years," he added.
