Techint Installs and Commissions Goodfellow EFSOP™ Systems
Techint Goodfellow Technologies Inc. (Mississauga, Ontario) has commissioned two Goodfellow EFSOP™ (Expert Furnace System Optimization Process) systems. One system was installed at Cape Gate (Pty) Ltd.'s Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng Province, location, and the other was installed at Cape Town Iron & Steel Works (Pty) Ltd.'s Kuilsrivier, Cape Town, location. Analysis of real-time measurements of O2, H2, CO and CO2 has been achieved with the EFSOP™ system.
Cape Gate is a family-owned company that produces wire and steel products with its own source of raw materials. Cape Town Iron & Steel Works is a scrap-based mini-mill that produces reinforcing steel in billet and bar form.
Goodfellow EFSOP™ technology is an off-gas-based process control system for EAFs. It measures and analyzes EAF off-gases continuously at the fourth-hole for real-time closed-loop process control of EAF steelmaking.
