STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Ivaco Rolling Mills

THE CHALLENGE

At the beginning of 2012, Tenova Core (EPC contractor) requested Magaldi to provide a dependable solution to handle the increased scrap charging volume (200 t/h) and reduce the operating costs associated with the furnace bay crane used for buckets charging in Ivaco Rolling Mills.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Ivaco Rolling Mills (IRM) is a Canadian steelmaking facility engaged in the production of steel billets and hot rolled wire roads from metal scrap.

 

THE SOLUTION

In 2012, two Superbelt® HD conveyors - with a throughput of 100 t/h each - were installed in parallel to feed the downstream slip-stick pan conveyor which pre-heats the scrap and discharge it into the EAF.
Both conveyors are loaded in batch by a magnet or a grapple which discharges up to 5 tons per shot of heavy scrap containing large beams and scrap clusters up to 1500 mm and 300 kg each. To withstand such tough conditions, the Superbelt® loading section is very sturdily.
Attention was also paid to the discharge point: a frequency converter adjusts the belt speed to properly feed the downstream slip-stick conveyor.
Additionally, a weighing device installed upstream the conveyors provides basic information to coordinate the EAF energy usage and the scrap feed rate.
