Korean Steelmaker Orders Direct-Fired Furnace
Andritz received an order from Hyundai Steel to supply a direct-fired furnace (DFF) for the existing continuous galvanizing line at its Dangjin plant. The scope of supply includes engineering, delivery, supervision of erection work and commissioning. The project will be executed during the fourth quarter of 2020. By replacing the existing direct-fired furnace with an Andritz Selas DFF, current issues such as formation of soot and cracks in the burner nozzle will be eliminated. This modernization will enable Hyundai Steel to produce value-added products for the automotive market.

The company produces steel products, including: hot-rolled, cold-rolled and coated sheet steel; structural steel beams and shapes; engineered special-bar-quality steel, merchant bar products; specialty steel sections; and steel joists and deck.
