NUCOR HERTFORD ISSUES PAC AFTER SUCCESSFUL START-UP OF INTECO PTI SWINGDOOR

PTI received an order from Nucor Hertford, a Consteel AC EAF, for the equipment supply, start-up and commissioning of a SwingDoor technology package for their already existing EAF.

A big thank you to the operations and maintenance team for their hard work throughout the installation and start-up process. They made our jobs very easy with their tremendous support and desire to make the SwingDoor a success at Nucor Hertford!

The new SwingDoor will help improve foamy slag control by keeping the slag door closed for almost the entire heat. The slag door will only be opened for steel samples and de-slagging. By keeping the slag door closed and retaining the slag, less energy is lost, less carbon is consumed, and more yield is conserved. SwingDoor technology contributes to indirect savings of CO2 emissions, through electrical energy consumption and electrode consumption reductions.
