Turnkey supply of a 175 t/h walking beam furnace for 16.5 m special steel billets
ArcelorMittal Hamburg has chosen the low-emission, low-consumption and high quality performances guaranteed by the combination of Danieli Centro Combustion furnace and Danieli Automation optimization model.
The furnace, designed for safe and reliable operation, will have an innovative thermal profile that achieves optimum heating efficiency thanks to improved convective heat exchange in the unfired zone and reduced environmental impact thanks to DCC proprietary flameless burners.
This state-of-the-art furnace, coupled with the fully automatic control logic of the combustion system, will allow the most flexible reheating practices to match the production mix requirements for low and medium carbon , bearing , spring and cold heading steel.
During next year shutdown period, the existing mill will be connected to the new furnace; this upgrade will allow to increase the weight of the coil to 2 tonnes and will improve both productivity and efficiency of the special steel wire rod mill at ArcelorMittal Hamburg.
Danieli Centro Combustion’s new installation in Germany will become the benchmark for quality and operational costs in long product heating systems.
