ABB ArcSave patented technology to save time, energy and materials while improving yield at new voestalpine BOHLER Edelstahl special steel plant in Kapfenberg, Austria. ABB’s ArcSave electromagnetic stirrer will be delivered in March 2020 and installed on an energy-efficient, 55-ton electric arc furnace at the new voestalpine BOHLER Edelstahl steel plant in Kapfenberg, Austria, helping optimize annual output of 205,000 tons of high-performance steels from mid-2021. Requiring no contact with the bottom of the EAF, ArcSave enhances stirring during the melting of large scrap items, reducing stratification via forced convection. This improves EAF operation by homogenizing temperature distribution and chemical composition, while speeding scrap and ferroalloy melting compared with natural convection alone.

Plant construction group SMS, which is responsible for the engineering, process technology and start-up of the fully automated melting system, specified ArcSave at the core of the Kapfenberg plant, which unites cost- and energy-efficiency with a high degree of automation and digitalization.
