Topic: Consteel technology: highest efficiency and flexibility to meet future requirements
Abstract: Tenova has continuously improved its Consteel Process and design to put steelmakers in a position where they can have utmost reliability as well as repeatable process efficiency attributing to sustainable, environmental-friendly and economic steel production. The latest off gas treatment solutions with in-situ fume composition measurement, heat recovery packages perfectly linked to charging conveyor to enhance energy efficiency and overall energy balance, the integration of the electromagnetic stirring system with the continuous charging process (CONSTEERRER)to control performance of the melting process and scrap treatment / cleaning solutions to manage the balancing act of higher final product requirements with worsening raw material qualities – these are just some examples of modifications and improvements to meet future challenges. With more than 60 references this melting concept represents the most reliable and flexible solution to provide liquid steel for further production steps.
