Toscelik Niksic, based in Niksic, Montenegro, awarded SMS Meer a contract for the supply of a rotary-hearth furnace with a capacity of up to 12 tons per hour. The furnace will be used to heat materials such as hardened steel, ball-bearing steel and stainless steel to forging temperature for further processing. The MEER-Flame burner allows for a reduction of power consumption and NOx emissions in comparison with the company’s current furnace. The Level-2 control system ensures uniform temperature distribution as well as a low level of oxidation and carbon enrichment of the steel. The furnace is scheduled for commissioning in the fourth quarter of 2014.
