SIMETAL EAF QuantumTM - The New Way of Efficient and Environmental Friendly Steel Making Ralf Morgenthaler Senior Sales Manager Lately, there are two market trends becoming obvious: Energy Prices are on the rising edge triggering headaches for steelmakers as much as environmental authorities are implementing new rules and regulations but also getting stricter regarding the compliance with the respective values. This paper is presenting the consequent and logical answer of SIEMENS VAI as a result of the recent market trends in conjunction with and based on the experience and know how developed and realized in house: The EAF QUANTUM ?. This new furnace concept stands maximized output and environmental compliance with minimum conversion costs. Through the utilization of the furnace offgas during the heat cycle, 100% of scrap can be preheated prior to final melting in the furnace vessel. This means considerable energy and cost savings with the substantial reduction in tapto- tap times (< 33 minutes). An energy consumption of 280kWh/t in combination with a reduced consumption of oxygen and a CO2 reduction of about 20 percent make the EAF QUANTUM? the most efficient and environmental compliant EAF in the market.2011 ESCO Seminar
