STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Charter Steel

THE CHALLENGE

In 2017, Magaldi was involved in the most challenging project ever carried out in the steel industry: to install a huge conveyor in the Saukville plant to collect and convey up to 300 t/h of heavy steel scrap.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Charter Steel is an American integrated steelmaker, whose capabilities include steel melting, bar and rod rolling, coil processing and wire drawing.
Its plant in Saukville, Wisconsin, is home to corporate offices as well as a fully integrated mini mill that includes a melt shop, a rolling mill and a processing facility.

 

THE SOLUTION

Charged by a Tenova Consteel, the Superbelt® HD conveyor is 2.400mm wide, with belt pans in manganese steel (Hardox 400) and 400mm sidewalls placed along the entire length of the belt to prevent scrap from falling out.
The loading area is designed with special supports and carrying idlers coated with rubber rings, installed with a closer pitch, to withstand heavy impact loads.
