Tenova Core recently completed the successful start-up of a walking-hearth plate heat-treating furnace at Outokumpu’s stainless plant located in New Castle, Ind. The furnace was installed as part of a plant upgrade project. The walking-hearth furnace features state-of-the-art low-NOx burners as well as a complete control and automation system that includes an advanced Level 1 tracking system.

Tenova Core also designed and supplied a custom jet-air and water-mist cooling system to reduce the temperature of the stainless plate product after it exits the furnace.
