    Primetals Technologies riceve l'accettazione finale per la modernizzazione del laminatoio di JSW Steel

    Primetals Technologies ha recentemente ricevuto il certificato di accettazione finale per la modernizzazione del laminatoio per prodotti lunghi di JSW Steel Ltd. a Salem. Cuore del progetto di modernizzazione è il nuovo gruppo sbozzatore reversibile con gabbie Red Ring, che consente di portare a 220 mm la dimensione massima del blumo laminabile. Ciò permette l'ampliamento della gamma dei prodotti laminati come dimensioni e gradi di acciaio. L'elevata rigidezza delle gabbie Red Ring consente una migliore qualità della laminazione, con conseguente riduzione dei difetti e aumento del rendimento metallico.

    Hot Metal Desulfurization and dedusting system from Primetals Technologies successfully commissioned at ArcelorMittal Monlevade

    Recently, at the production site of Brazilian steel producer ArcelorMittal Monlevade a 130-ton-hot-metal desulfurization station (DeS) and a new dedusting system supplied by Primetals Technologies commenced operation. The desulfurization station represents the first installation of Primetals Technologies combining a volumetric dosing device for Magnesium (Mg) and a pressure dispenser for Calcium Oxide (CaO). Low sulfur levels of lesser than 0,005% (50ppm) can be achieved. The consumption of desulfurization agents is significant reduced and processing times are reduced to less than 30 minutes compared to treatment in a torpedo car.

    Primetals Technologies to modernize Zenith Steel billet caster with SRD segments and technological packages

    Chinese steel producer Zenith Steel Group Co., Ltd. (Zenith Steel) awarded an order to Primetals Technologies to modernize a 10-strand billet caster in its converter steel making plant #3 in Changzhou. The billet caster will be the first one worldwide to be equipped with the new SRD (Single-Roll DynaGap) segments. The SRD segment has been specially developed for use in the area of final solidification, and it enables the upper rolls to be pressed down individually onto the solidifying strand. This enables the final solidification point to be followed precisely.
