Techint Technologies to Retrofit Mepsa EAF
January 4, 2001
Metallurgica Peruana S.A., Lima, Peru, has selected Techint Technologies, Pittsburgh, PA, to retrofit their existing EAF. The existing OT Lectromelt EAF will be retrofitted with the new version of the Techint Digital Regulator (TDR), which is especially tailored to the mechanics of older Lectromelt EAFs. The electrode movement will be improved with a new hydraulic system, and power will be more efficiently delivered by installing a new transformer reactor. The upgraded EAF is scheduled to be in operation within the third quarter of 2001.
