Sinosteel Advanced Materials Co. Ltd and Tenova LOI Italimpianti, together with LOI Thermprocess for local manufacturing, signed a contract for the turnkey supply of three car-bottom furnaces and one central incinerator system to be installed at Sinosteel’s facility in Zhejiang Province, China. The furnaces will be used for the baking process of fine-grain carbon blocks to be further graphitized and used in the single-crystal silicon pulling market.

Each furnace has a maximum gross capacity of 450 tons and is fired by means of a min/max burner system. The furnaces are connected to a central incinerator in order to deal with the pollution standard required.
