STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Charter Steel

THE CHALLENGE

After the Saukville facility, Charter Steel decided to also equip the Cleveland melt shop with a Superbelt® conveyor to handle high-temperature shear scrap.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Charter Steel also operates a fully integrated mini mill in Cleveland, Ohio that includes a state-of-the-art melt shop and a rolling.
The Cleveland facility is located in Cuyahoga Heights.

 

THE SOLUTION

A Superbelt® conveyor moves cropped bars from the shear machine up to the operating floor where the material is discharged in two buckets.
A discharge chute (provided by Magaldi) diverts the bars into the buckets to discharge the first one while the second one is being filled.
Designed with a 45° slope, the Superbelt® conveys two types of hot (1,093°C) shear scraps:

Based on the design data, the crop cuts rate is 3.05 MTPH while, in upset conditions, the surge capacity required to convey cobble cuts is 272.2 MTPH. In the latter case, the overall mill control system automatically adjusts the belt speed till the upset condition is overcome. For this reason, a frequency converter has been installed on the conveyor’s drive.
