STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Arcelormittal - Dofasco

THE CHALLENGE

As part of a wider project to reduce energy consumption in the hot rolling mill, Magaldi was requested to investigate the possibility to replace 27 shaking tables for hot scales conveying, responsible for high energy consumption and material spillage in the pit.

 

THE CUSTOMER

ArcelorMittal Dofasco is Canada’s leading steel producer and a hallmark of advanced manufacturing in North America, working with the top automotive, energy, packaging and construction brands. 
Founded in 1912, the integrated steel complex is based in Hamilton, Ontario, where more than 5,000 employees produce 4.5 million net tons of high-quality flat carbon steel annually.

 

THE SOLUTION

Since 2013, the hot rolling mill has been equipped with a Superbelt® conveyor which handles the scales falling from the rolling line at about 1000 °C. and moves them up to the discharging beam.
The Superbelt® perfectly met the demand for reduced energy consumption as its rated power is just 4 kW while power consumption is even lower. This means a significant energy saving when compared to the 27 shaking tables.
Furthermore, thanks to its smooth operation without vibrations or shaking, the Superbelt® allowed to dramatically decrease to 5% the pit cleaning requirements.

Due to the narrow space available to install the conveyor in the pit underneath the rolling line, the 90-meter-long Superbelt® conveyor was preassembled in modules of about 6 meters each and then moved by a crane into the pit. All in just 4 days.
