A reheating furnace upgrade completed at El Masria Steel, part of Garhy Steel Group, near Cairo n Egypt included a new combustion system, featuring field instrumentation, a new recuperator (energy recovery form waste gases) and a new automation system. All existing burners for the preheating, heating and soaking zones were replaced with Daniel’s original MAB -Multi Air Staging Burners, providing additional thermal capacity to achieve the target furnace productivity and operational flexibility. The target of 25% fuel consumption saving was not only achieved but improved by a further 20%, resulting in both financial benefits -operational expenditure- and environmental impact -reduced CO2 emissions. The outstanding performance led to an extremely quick final acceptance for the project.
New combustion system for reheat furnace includes Danieli Automation and Daniel Centro Combustion technologies
