ANDRITZ Lands Order for Galvanizing Line Furnace

7/27/2021 - ANDRITZ has received an order from China-based Valin ArcelorMittal Automotive Steel Co. Ltd. for a furnace that will serve a new galvanizing line. 

According to ANDRITZ, the line will coat third-generation advanced high-strength steels in zinc or zinc-aluminum-magnesium alloys.  

ANDRITZ will supply a direct-fired furnace (DFF) with pre-oxidation functions as well as high-temperature radiant tube (RT) annealing and soaking sections, advanced ultra-rapid cooling and partitioning sections, and the after-pot cooling (APC) and post-treatment section.

“The delivery will also provide a sustainable ANDRITZ solution for a heat recovery system that will use hot exhaust gases from the furnace to heat the air needed for the drying process in the coating section,” ANDRITZ said.
