New Order: Two CUSTOMIZED VERTICAL LADLE PREHEATERS
SSAB AL has ordered two customized ladle preheater packages from Inteco PTI. The package consists of engineering, project management, start up and commissioning for the project as well as the supply of the equipment. The package also includes the software implementation to the EAF pulpit.
The preheater system will be custom designed to fit in-line with the ladle car near the furnace. It will be composed of a free-standing support structure. A bridge section, supported by the columns, will span the rails. It will support a moveable fiber refractory lid that contains the burner and air train. The lid will be hydraulically raised and lowered about two feet.
The bridge will include walkways, handrails, and a ladder to allow easy access to the bridge for maintenance, without the need for a harness.
