INTECO is very proud to announce that the contract for the ESR plant signed with Ruspolymet has become effective by October 2013.
This most modern unit will feature all state-of-the-art features such as protective gas operation, full coaxial high current line and a completely updated control system of newest generation. This plant will be designed in a most flexible configuration enabling the operation in collar molds (with electrode change) with a retractable base plate as well as in static molds (single electrode remelting).
Most of the electrodes will be produced in INTECO´s VIM furnace which will be already in production at the time when the ESR plant will be started up. The maximum ingot dimension has been defined with diameter of 750mm and a maximum weight of approx. 10 tons.
Following the request of Ruspolymet, INTECO shortened the delivery time by two months and will delivery this unique ESR furnace in May 2014.
