    Primetals Technologies to supply gas cleaning plant for blast furnace to ArcelorMittal Poland

    Recently, ArcelorMittal Poland S.A. placed an order with Primetals Technologies and Mostostal Zabrze Realizacje Przemyslowe S.A. (MZRP) to supply a gas cleaning plant for its blast furnace #2 in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Silesia Voivodeship. The gas cleaning plant constitutes a pilot installation to be built under one of the ArcelorMittal Poland’s R&D projects co-financed from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund. The gas cleaning plant, which includes a cyclone dust separator and wet gas scrubber, will be set up as full turnkey installation. The new equipment will reduce maintenance requirements and energy consumption, increase dry dust recycling and improve the environmental footprint of the site. Work on site is scheduled to start in 2022.

    World premiere: First commissioning of new type of mould level control for continuous casters by Primetals Technologies

    Primetals Technologies has obtained the final acceptance certificate (FAC) for a new type of continuous casting control on an Arvedi ESP casting and rolling line. The "LevCon Bender Anti-Bulging" process patented by Primetals Technologies was commissioned for the first time anywhere in the world. The mould level in the continuous caster is stabilized by means of a controlled oscillation in the distance between opposite rollers in the bending section. This new type of process reduces the "bulging" effect of the strand on the mould level at high speeds much more effectively than by simply controlling the mould level via the steel flow into the mould. For the first time ever, it is now possible to compensate mould level fluctuations with higher frequencies.

    Primetals Technologies and thyssenkrupp join forces to launch an innovative blast furnace technology enabling a key step towards carbon neutrality

    Primetals Technologies and thyssenkrupp have signed an exclusive, worldwide cooperation agreement which sees both parties commit to bringing the innovative Sequence Impulse Process (known as SIP for short) technology to the market. The SIP technology has been developed by thyssenkrupp AT.PRO tec, a company of thyssenkrupp Materials Services, and is well established for use in foundry cupola furnaces. The underlying principles of this proven technology have been adapted and specifically tailored to the blast furnace process. To prove the technology, thyssenkrupp Steel Europe has installed the first ever full system on their blast furnace #1 at Schwelgern, Duisburg in Germany.
