QATAR STEEL ORDERS NEW SWINGDOOR FROM INTECO PTI
PTI received an order from Qatar Steel for the equipment supply, start-up and commissioning of a SwingDoorTM technology package for their already existing EAF.
The new SwingDoorTM 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 temperature / steel samples and de-slagging. By keeping the slag door closed, less energy is lost, less carbon is consumed, and more yield is conserved. SwingDoorTM technology contributes to indirect savings of CO2 emissions, through electrical energy consumption and electrode consumption reductions.
