SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled Provides Update on Nucor-Yamato Single Bucket Charge Work

2/4/2014 - SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled, Inc. provided an update on the work it is doing for Nucor-Yamato Steel's EAFs in Blytheville, Ark.
SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled, Inc. has completed the final design and engineering analysis of the new larger diameter Spray-Cooled™ roof, the new larger diameter and taller Spray-Cooled™ upper furnace shell along with a completely new design Spray-Cooled™ drop-out chamber roof with integral Spray-Cooled duct extension for Nucor-Yamato Steel Co’s single bucket charge furnace upgrade on its No. 1 (East) and No. 2 (West) furnaces in Blytheville, Ark.  The drop-out chamber roof integral duct extension will allow the existing Spray-Cooled furnace roof elbow and all existing Spray-Cooled off gas ducts to be reused without any modifications being required.  
The project deliverables call for two furnace roofs, two sidewalls and two drop-out chamber roofs for each of the furnaces.  The No. 2 furnace equipment is currently in manufacturing with the furnace roofs 60% complete and the sidewalls 75% complete.  Spray tests are scheduled to take place with the customer around the end of February 2014.  The drop-out chamber roofs are also on track for an on time delivery.  SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled will deliver all No. 2 furnace equipment on-time by the end of the second quarter of 2014 with the No. 1 furnace equipment scheduled for an on-time delivery by the end of 2014.
