Global industrial engineering group Fives has developed a new flameless Direct Firing Furnace for continuous annealing or galvanizing lines, which will enable the production of new generation steels Gen3 AHSS for the automotive industry. It is a breakthrough innovation responding to the constraints associated with the production of Gen3 AHSS, the new steel grades needed to manufacture lightweight vehicles with reduced emissions. The new concept received the Grand Prix at Fives’ Innovation Award in Paris on September 24, 2020. Fives’ Innovation Award is an annual event, held by the group, to support innovative ideas and solutions among its employees.

In strip processing lines, the furnace is a key technology for achieving the final product properties – but if preheating temperature in DFF is not homogenous, those properties can be compromised. The innovative DFF uses new S-shaped tunnel geometry combined with flameless combustion to achieve homogeneous heating in all the sections of the furnace by using a new generation of lateral burners. The result is a homogeneous temperature of +/-10°C along the whole width of the strip at the exit of the furnace.
