Watercooled Panels and Roofs
Increase Arc Furnace Production
Reduce Refractory Costs
Recently a prominent steel producing facility challenged Whiting Corporation to design a higher production arc furnace. Whiting responded by designing an expanded capacity shell with water cooled sidewalls, water cooled roof, submerged sidewall tap hole, and a fast return tilt feature that assures quick metal - pour cutoff.
In addition to increased production, the new design provides the melter with additional advantages:
- Increased Productivity...from a 5-charge to 3-charge heat
- Reduced Refractory Costs...with water-cooled roof and 80% to 85% sidewall panel coverage
- Reduced Refractory Requirement Increases Furnace Availability
- Slag free Control and Compact Liquid Steel Pour Capability... made possible with submerged tap hole and fast return tilt cutoff
- Liquid Heel Operating Capability further improves productivity
- Reduced Electrode Consumption...increased economy
- Improved Working Environment around and above the furnace
