On September 17 this year, Tenova started up a record-breaking melting unit, a new Consteel EAF, at Acciaieria Arvedi at Cremona in Italy replacing the existing Consteel furnace, originally installed in 2008. The furnace has a tapping size of 300 metric tons and is designed to reach a power-ON time of 37 minutes with a charge mix including up to 30% HBI or other scrap substitutes.

The outstanding productivity performance of the new Consteel® EAF has been designed with the aim to meet the increased demand of the recently revamped continuous casting and rolling mill line of the steel plant. This output has never been achieved before by a single EAF worldwide, and it is made possible thanks to the proprietary Consteel® continuous charging and melting technology of Tenova, complemented by Consteerrer®, an innovative electro-magnetic stirring system, jointly developed with ABB.

The furnace has a 9,1m diameter shell and is continuously fed by a 4m wide Consteel slip-stick conveyor. The furnace is also equipped with a state-of-the art level 1 and level 2 automation package.
