- Successful startup of large LD converter with innovative suspension system
- LD converter lifted over 10-meter-high pipe bridge at the steel plant shortly before shutdown
- Optimized reaction volume and vessel shape to further improve yield and energy efficiency toward benchmark levels
Recently, a new LD converter (BOF) implemented by Primetals Technologies was started up at ArcelorMittal Belgium’s steel plant in Gent, Belgium. To meet the demands on pre-assembly works, Primetals Technologies came up with several innovative ideas.
