Forjasul Orders Induction Heating System
SMS Elotherm received an order from Brazil’s Forjasul Canoas for the supply of an EloForge™ induction heating system. SMS Elotherm will integrate the system into Forjasul’s existing plant in Rio Grande do Sul and customize it precisely to production requirements. With nominal power of 500 kW, the system will heat up to 1,250-kg (2,755-pound) steel billets with 51 mm (2 inches) in diameter per hour to the required temperature of 1250°C (2282°F). The project with Forjasul is one of two current orders for an EloForge from Brazil. The system will be commissioned in spring 2013.
