STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

TenarisTamsa

THE CHALLENGE

Originally, steel scrap was transported by trucks to the melt-shop. This material handling process was very expensive and caused inefficiencies in the management of the available space.
The Customer entrusted Magaldi with the supply of a solution more suited to the plant needs.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Tenaris Tamsa is one of the world’s largest steel pipe manufacturers, with an annual production capacity of 1.2 million tons of seamless steel pipes.
In the Veracruz plant, the integrated production process starts with the manufacturing of steel from scrap and sponge iron, which are turned into billets and transformed into seamless steel pipes.
Steel scrap generated by cutting pipes is instead used to feed an EAF.

 

THE SOLUTION

Magaldi installed 2 Superbelt® HD conveyors to move pressed tubular steel scrap (90%) and other metallic scrap (10%) from the new automatic shear system up to the scrap yard.
The fixed steel belt conveyor is made of steel wear plates provided with formed swells and reinforcing ribs. The loading point has been designed to withstand the impact of the material discharged from the existing shredding pivoting conveyor. Additionally, both sides of the conveyor channel are lined with wear-resistant plates to minimize friction and material jamming.
The second Superbelt® HD conveyor is designed to pivot over a curved steel rail. Thanks to its exclusive design, the conveyor gives the opportunity to discharge the material over a larger area of the scrap yard thus making the most of the available space.
