An award-winning engineering solution at British Steel’s Special Profiles operation has received a further boost after it was awarded three patents. A GBP 2 million investment was made in 2017 to install a ground-breaking new descaling system at our Skinningrove-based Special Profiles rolling mill. British Steel developed and installed the state-of-the-art technology in partnership with Italian specialists INOXIHP. The system fires highly pressurised water through multiple nozzles at more than 200 bars, onto red hot steel blooms. This process smartly and efficiently removes the scale formed during the process of reheating the steel, with intelligent lasers ensuring the sprayer is in the optimum position to provide our customers with the highest quality finish.

Special Profiles operation produces special-shaped steel sections for use in a wide range of industries. The steel blooms are made at our integrated steelworks in Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire before being transferred by rail to the Skinningrove site in North Yorkshire where they’re expertly processed according to the exact requirements of the customer. The descaling process is an integral part of operation, as it dramatically improves the surface quality of the steel.
