Taiwanese Steelmaker Orders Pusher Furnace
Danieli Centro Combustion S.p.A. was awarded a contract for an 80-metric-ton/hour top-fired pusher furnace. The unit will be installed at Lo Toun Steel & Iron Works Company’s new 600,000-ton/year rebar mill complex (low- and medium-carbon steel) in Yilan Country, Taiwan. In order to satisfy a tight schedule, Danieli Centro Combustion will design and manufacture the furnace casing using a prefabricated technique based on flat modules, which comes supplied lined with all the necessary refractory and insulation materials. Mixed gas (liquefied petroleum gas and air) will be used to generate the required heat load.
