IRONMAKING AND STEELMAKING
Since the early ‘80s Danieli has been among the leaders in secondary refining for ordinary, specialty and stainless steels. The know-how gained over many years has been used to develop and optimize equipment and processes, and also to meet our customers’ most stringent requirements.
The main purpose of the LF is to raise steel temperature and to control the chemical composition between tapping and casting, removing and/or modifying inclusions and acting as a buffer in melt shop logistics. Many different solutions have been developed, such as: LF with inert roof, supported on one side only for optimal accessibility; Twin LF with two treatment positions and swivelling electrodes; handling in the ladle furnace by ladle cars or turret; capacity: 5 – 350 ton. or more.
