Fives Fires New Reheating Furnace at CELSA France

International engineering group Fives, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor,and long product maker CELSA Group have fired an ultra-low emission reheating furnace for a brand-new wire rod rolling mill in the CELSA France complex. The new complex is located in the municipalities of Boucau and Tarnos of the New Aquitaine region of France and is specialized in the production of steel billets from the recovery of scrap. This is the first walking beam furnace for billet reheating installed in France over the last 40 years. The new reheating furnace, Stein Digit@l Furnace, has a capacity of 120 tonnes per hour and is designed to charge hot billets of different sections and lengths directly from the caster at 800 degree Celsius to significantly reduce ecological footprint. The final products, wire rods and bars, will be serving the construction market boosting the economic dynamism of the region.

The Stein Digit@l Furnace features the best available technology, including complete digital on & off control and heat curve control for optimum combustion with the billet discharge surface temperature at 1,170 degree Celsius. The furnace is equipped with the latest generation of AdvanTek central wide flame burners. AdvanTek burners from Fives are a steelmakers’ choice for a green footprint and reduced energy consumption, with the lowest NOx emissions, less than 50 ppm.
