Stein Heurtey Awarded Order for Annealing Furnace
Stein Heurtey received an order from Corus to supply a Digiflex® vertical annealing furnace and the after-pot cooling section of the new automotive hot-dip galvanizing line DVL3 for the steelmaker’s IJmuiden (Netherlands) works. The galvanizing line will have a capacity of 500,000 tons/year and will be used to increase IJmuiden’s automotive sales from just under 1 million tons/year to roughly 1.4 million tons/year. Production is scheduled to start in mid-2008.
The Digiflex® includes a direct-fired heating furnace (NOF process), a pulse-fired radiant tube furnace, an ultra-rapid cooling section and an induction booster.
