UHT secures an order for a GRANSHOT granulation unit

UHT has received an order for a GRANSHOT® metal granulation unit to voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl GmbH. The granulation unit will be integrated in voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl’s new special steel plant project in Kapfenberg, Austria. 
GRANSHOT metal granulation converts liquid metal into granules by rapid solidification in water and the new unit in Kapfenberg will be equipped with UHT’s newly developed Rotating Tundish technology. This new granulation technology is developed to improve the granule properties and is especially suited for steel and ferroalloy granulation. UHT will deliver a complete plant, including process engineering and automation.
The new special steel plant in Kapfenberg will produce around 205,000 tons of high-performance steels, especially for the international aviation and automotive industries as well as for the oil & gas sector.
The GRANSHOT process, developed in-house and with over 50 references, is proven in integrated steelmaking and ferroalloy industries as an optimum choice for solidifying liquid metal in a secure, environmentally friendly and economical way. Metal granules are homogenous in composition, easy to handle, store and transport.
