Tung Ho Steel Orders Induction System
SMS Elotherm will supply a new induction system for Tung Ho Steel’s production plant for medium and large sections in Miaoli, Taiwan. With the new induction reheater, Tung Ho Steel is achieving a large reduction in heavy oil consumption while reducing emissions at the same time. This concept allows for rapid reheating of various materials and sizes. The 19.2-MW system is powered by four medium-frequency transistor converters with a rating of 4,800 kW each. To reach the most suitable temperature for the downstream rolling process, the energy introduced into the sections can be adapted. The new line is scheduled to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2014.
