Q-CHARGE
Least-cost calculator for EAF charges
BENEFITS
  • Minimization of EAF production costs
  • Support for long-term production planning
  • Faster and more reliable charge calculations
  • Charge optimization models are powerful tools to minimize EAF production costs, while at the same time fulfill quality requirements. The reduction in material costs is particularly significant if the optimization is applied to a sufficient number of heats
  • For stainless steel - The Least-Cost Charge calculator optimizes the EAF charge for the given inventory levels
  • For carbon steel - Optimization of residual element levels generates cheaper charge mixes
