Fives’ highest capacity reheating furnaces in India for JSW Dolvi Works

Fives, a global industrial engineering group, signed a contract with JSW Dolvi Works, a part of India’s leading steel producer JSW Steel, for the design and supply of two reheating furnaces featuring highest capacity.

Fives' slab reheating furnace

The JSW Dolvi Works, located in the state of Maharashtra, on the west coast of India, aims to increase its capacities to enable production of high-quality strip of carbon structure steel, low alloy DP and TRIP steels, API and HSLA grades. The expansion plan includes complete facilities starting from iron making, steel melting, slab casting and a hot strip mill with an annual capacity of five million tons.

Fives will supply two Stein Digit@l Furnace® for the new hot strip mill. 

The Stein Digit@l Furnace® will have the highest slab reheating furnace capacity installed in India to date: 450 tons per hour. The furnaces ensure homogeneous heating due to the new generation of AdvanTek® burners which are all located on the furnace sidewalls. The furnaces will be equipped with the Virtuo® Edge-R system. This is a level 2 process optimization system, which enables control of the slab temperature profile in a real-time mode. 

The Stein Digit@l Furnace® allows for high environmental performance, low fuel consumption and unrivalled ultra-low NOx emissions for any range of mill production.
