Italian Steelmaker Orders Heat-Treatment Facility
Danieli Olivotto Ferrè received a contract from Accaierie Bertoli Safau (ABS) for the engineering, manufacturing and installation of a new facility for bar heat treatment at the Cargnacco steel works. The facility will anneal, temper, normalize and stress relieve 6,000 metric tons per month of a wide range of bar profiles, from smaller bar bundles (25 mm) up to single 600-mm-diameter (23.6-inch-diameter) bars. All steel grades can be converted, from low-carbon to high-alloy steels. The facility includes two direct-firing lift-off-type furnaces that function by means of burners fed with natural gas. Danieli will also supply an electrical power-distribution system and a Level 1 control system.
