In September 2018 Inteco PTI received an order from Ternium for the equipment supply, start up and commissioning of a Swing Door technology package for their EAF at the Planta Puebla location.
This specific Swing Door will work combined with a slag door cleaning device and remove the operator completely from the slag door area and the furnace platform.
In addition to this, the Swing Door will help improve foamy slag control by keeping the slag door closed for almost the entire heat. The slag door will only be opened for temperature / steel samples and de-slagging. By keeping the slag door closed, less energy is lost, less carbon is consumed, and more yield is conserved. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered and started up early in 2019.
