In a statement, MORE said the orders are from Spanish steelmaker CELSA Barcelona, which will install the systems on its 150-ton EAFs. 

“The EBT SAND system has been developed to increase to operators’ safety, avoiding manual operations from the top of the sump panel of the EBT taphole after tapping,” the company said.
