Oxygen Steelmaking

2021 April Issue

A new relining machine for the 340-metric-ton basic oxygen furnace converters at Ternium Brazil was supplied by Primetals Technologies Austria GmbH. The new concept allows for the machine to be installed with the overhead crane in front of the converter, where it expands and lowers into the converter. The machine uses an advanced winch system for lifting the platform and transporting the brick pallets, leading to a significant reduction of relining time and improved personal and operational safety.
