STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Feralpi Siderurgica

THE CHALLENGE

In 2016, Feralpi chose Magaldi as technology provider to supply a dependable steel belt conveyor for the heavy metal scrap preparation process.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Feralpi Siderurgica is one of the main European iron & steel producers.
Its steel mill in Lonato del Garda (Italy) uses “minimills” EAF technology for steel melting and a continuous casting system to produce billets that feed the rolling mill in real time.

 

THE SOLUTION

After the cleaning treatment, a Superbelt® conveys 200 t/h of heavy scrap up to the metal preparation area for furnace feeding.
The conveyor is equipped with special supports and carrying idlers coated with rubber. The closer pitch of the carrying idlers offers an optimal weight distribution on the belt so to disperse the energy generated by the falling scrap.
Special 300 mm sidewalls along the entire length of the conveyor prevent material spillage while a weighing system installed on loading cells in the horizontal frame allows to weigh the material continuously.
Finally, a rotating chute (60°) on a double slewing drive and a reinforced structure at the head section allows to better distribute scrap in the bunker.
