Tenova Goodfellow has finalized contract negotiations to apply the Goodfellow EFSOP® process-control technology as part of Wheeling-Pittsburgh’s 270-ton Consteel® EAF installation at the company’s Steubenville/Mingo Junction Plant. This EAF is unique in its ability to charge hot metal and scrap simultaneously. Tenova Goodfellow’s scope of work for the project will include providing process technology and equipment to sample and analyze EAF off-gases continuously at the fourth hole for CO, CO2, O2 and H2.
This technology will help provide real-time closed-loop process control of steelmaking, resulting in improved operations, energy savings, lower conversion costs and safety benefits. Wheeling-Pittsburgh will also employ the technology to recognize and track changes in the scrap quality.
