Techint Technologies received three orders for vacuum degassing units. In the U.S., Techint will supply a 120-ton, twin-tank vacuum degasser at the Steel Dynamics Inc. structural/rail mill in Colombia City, Ind. The Techint Melt Shop Group in Milan will supply a new ladle furnace and a new lid type VD/VOR unit to Acciaieria di Rubiera in Italy.
