Danieli will supply a continuous Galvalume line to Abul Khair Strip Processing, to be installed at Chittagong, Bangladesh.
Designed for a total capacity of approximately 200,000 tpy strip from 0.12 to 1.0 mm thicks and up to 1,350 mm wide, the line will process products for construction applications and, in future, white goods.
The horizontal, Non-Ox annealing furnace by Danieli Centro Combustion will be able to process CQ and FH grades, at a max. capacity of 40 tph. The final zinc-aluminum thickness will be controlled by the Danieli Kohler X-Jet air-wiping system.
The combination of the installed technologies will allow Abul Khair Steel to achieve production of GL coating down to 50 g/m2 for both sides at 210 m/min, with max. deviation of +/-2.5%.
A skin-pass and tension-leveler line (Q-Surface by Danieli Wean United) will guarantee elongation up to 2% (with accuracy of +/-0.1%), and roughness and flatness improvement (up to 5IU).
The software packages and the integrated functionalities will be developed by Danieli Automation to guarantee the best process control by the automation systems, minimizing any manual intervention.
Equipment delivery is scheduled during 2020 and hot start-up is expected by 15 months from coming into force.
