Core Furnace Systems (CORE) has recently been contracted to convert an existing EAF from conventional to bottom tapping at Nucor Steel’s Jackson, Miss., facility.
The revamp project consists of a new lower shell, “king-pin-type” superstructure, tilting platform, retractable maintenance platform, electrode columns and roof lift mechanism. Various other components, related to the bottom-tapping conversion, are also included in the project scope.
This revamp will improve the efficiency and reliability of Nucor Jackson’s scrap melting process. Installation will take place in 2008.
