Tenova has received an order from Hasçelik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., to install and commission state-of-the-art equipment in a new plant in Osmaneli (Bilecik, Türkiye).
The new line will comprise a Consteel® Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) equipped with Consteerrer®, an electro-magnetic liquid steel stirring system, a Ladle Furnace (LF) and a Twin Vacuum Degasser (VD). All units are linked and governed by an extensive, state-of-the-art automation system to optimize the whole process and guarantee high-quality steel grades.
The new Consteel® furnace will be equipped with Consteerrer®, a technology jointly developed by ABB and Tenova as part of an exclusive global partnership agreement. Consteerrer® is an application of ABB’s unique ArcSave® non-contact electromagnetic stirring technology designed specifically for continuous charging EAFs. It reduces thermal losses, increases melt rate, rapidly homogenizes the liquid steel and reduces oxygen content in the bath. The technology can be customized to match the needs of different EAFs and retrofitted on existing units.
