Stein Digit@l Furnace commissioning at SAIL Rourkela

Fives and Steel Authority of India (SAIL) Rourkela Steel Plant have successfully discharged the first hot slab from Fives' reheating furnace on January 31, 2020.

Fives was entrusted to design and supply two walking beam furnaces - Stein Digit@l Furnace® - each with 300 tons per hour capacity for reheating high-quality steel slabs at the Rourkela Steel Plant, located in the eastern state of Odisha. 

The Stein Digit@l Furnace® is equipped with the AdvanTek® combustion system and controlled by the level 2 Virtuo® Edge-R package, ensuring optimum reheating of the slabs with minimum environmental impact.

The AdvanTek® burners provide a unique feature of fuel flexibility allowing the customer to use available fuels most efficiently and easily switch between low calorific value mixed gas and heavy fuel oil, as well as to utilize both fuel in different zones at the same time.
