The first Danieli Zero-bucket EAF with ECS scrap preheating in China is in operation Chizhou City.

On May 5 the first heat was processed. A very quick learning curve allowed more than 110 heats in less than two weeks, leading to the signature of the Acceptance Certificate on May 18.

High-efficiency and high-productivity deep pool shell EAF with original continuous charging system guarantees the processing of top-quality products at the most competitive CapEx + OpEx.

Gui Hang selected Danieli Zero-bucket solution to replace induction melting, preferring the low electrical energy and electrode consumption ensured by Danieli EAF featuring horizontal continuous charging scrap system (ECS system).

Present tap-to-tap time is 43 min with charging either 100% scrap or 90% scrap + 10% pig iron.
