Steelton Process & New Investments
Reheat Furnace Foundation
This is the new re heat furnace under construction at Steelton. This new furnace will replace an older heating method. The efficient new furnace will afford less energy consumption, improved quality and lower cost. The project is expected to be complete in 2013.
New Bloom Yard Cranes
Once the reheat furnace is complete, Steelton will be able to “ uncouple” steelmaking from our current heating practice. This will afford the opportunity to produce longer cast strings of our rolled products. The bloom yard will inventory and store the steel for future production.This image depicts the new bloom yard cranes which will move the steel within storage to the new furnace.
Here we see 25 m queuing up for entry into Steelton´s premium rail, head hardening machine. The Steelton design is the platform from which head hardening equipment in Gijon was developed.Head Hardened Rail
Here, rails have been bundled for loading to the port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These rails in Arema standard are destined to America.
