Edwards supplies Steel Degassing System to Italy

Edwards has installed a modular steel degassing system in a large steel producer in Italy, replacing an existing steam ejector system that had high running costs and energy usage. The steel manufacturer, which produces 1.5 million tons per year of high-quality steel for the automotive and power industries, has had six Edwards’ mechanical steel degassing modules installed. Edwards’ modular steel degassing vacuum equipment’s standardised concept provides an easy installation and integration, securing immediate reduction of running costs.
The mechanical steel degassing system from Edwards enables the customer to enjoy the immediate readiness of the system compared to steam ejectors, which require heating up time, providing an increase in productivity, reliability and consistency. In the unlikely event of pump failure, the modular design of the system ensures high uptime in a simple, reliable way, and provides improved stability.

Alessandro Vila, Sales Manager, Europe at Edwards, commented, “Thanks to the pioneering work of Edwards, energy-saving mechanical vacuum systems are today almost a standard in vacuum degassing. Nowadays steel plants are increasingly eager to replace their energy consuming steam ejectors and we are proud to be the supplier of choice in product and support.”
