Tenova Inc. (USA) has recently been contracted by Charter Steel – a leading American supplier of carbon and alloy steel bar, rod and wire products – to design and supply a Consteel® system to integrate with their existing EAF at its Saukville, Wisconsin works.
The Consteel® system will feature the latest innovative design and automation technology associated with the proven continuous scrap preheating and feeding technology to the EAF. The Consteel® design for Charter Steel utilizes a “double-conveyor feed system” to overcome the challenges of the existing melt shop layout. The double-conveyor system allows the Consteel® to be economically installed into almost any type of existing melt shop layout.
The Consteel® system, as proven in 6 other US installations and 51 other installations worldwide, increases steelmaking productivity and reduces energy consumption.
Installation of the Charter’s Consteel® is scheduled for the second half of 2018.
