First heat at a showcase project in the US

INTECO is proud to announce that the first heat at the VD-plant at Nucor Steel Darlington, USA was successfully carried out. The start-up represents a milestone for INTECO being the first INTECO VD in the US and INTECOs largest one with mechanical vacuum pumps.

INTECO’s advanced system design ensures short pump down times and pressure curves adapted to each steel grade. Another special feature is the special design of the vacuum cover strictly following INTECO’s “zero leakage design” enabling very short treatment time and thus increased process efficiency.

Having such a reference plant in the US with one of the largest and most renowned steel giants will definitely open doors for further projects with US steel producers.
