Order for new spray cooling systems, Confidential Customer Europe
In the last years the prices for graphite electrodes reached an all-time high and even though the supply situation has relaxed nowadays the electrode consumption is a crucial factor in the production costs of electric steel making. For new EAFs it is nowadays state of the art to use spray cooling systems to considerably reduce the electrode consumption. However more and more clients running older furnaces are asking to retrofit such a system to gain its benefits.
The fact that upgrade pays off is proven by one of our top clients who decided for INTECO’s electrode spray cooling system last year. As a result a reduction of 25 % of electrode consumption was reached. Based on this success story our client – among the top steel producers in the world – made the decision to upgrade also its other furnaces with our spray cooling system.
