The capacity of the Arcelor Mittal Gent Hot Strip Mill furnace is 450 ton/hour, but since today, only burners for 225 ton/hour capacity were installed.
Slabs charging is executed directly by the overhead crane on the roller table at the entry side of the furnace.
Today AMG wants to increase the capacity of the furnace up to 450 ton/hour, installing new burners; therefore a new safety system with high slab charging capacity is necessary.
Sarralle Equipos Siderúrgicos has been selected by AMG for the new changing plant engineering, manufacturing and installation, mainly consisting of the following equipment:
Moreover in order to increase the reliability of the complete slab delivery installation, AMG commissioned to Sarralle all the connecting roller tables with the existing furnaces 3 and 4.
The project will be executed in two phases: roller table installation within the end of March, SPT, crane and scrap slab car within the end of October 2018.
Sarralle is in charge to supply design, equipment manufacturing, commissioning and the complete plant erection.
