Rolling Mill

In the hot strip mill, our specially designed burners can provide incremental heating to edges, corners and surfaces during the rolling process to improve temperature uniformity and metallurgical properties. In-line temperature restoration can help reduce edge and corner cracking in specific grades of steel and alloys. In the cold mill, our patented cool rolling technology can help you improve finish quality while lowering your costs during rolling. The best solution for your process depends on many factors, such as your existing rolling mill’s operating parameters, quality targets, and production goals. Our applications engineers can help you implement tailored systems to meet your specific needs.

Gases

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By replacing combustion air with oxygen, overall combustion can be improved through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures and reduced volume of exhaust gases.

Cool Rolling Technology

This patented technology uses liquid nitrogen as a cooling medium for the final or skin pass in cold rolling of carbon steel strip. This technology can help you improve productivity, surface appearance and quality, enabling increased yield plus reduced operating and maintenance costs.

Oxy-fuel Systems

Our direct flame impingement oxy-fuel systems are designed to provide in-line temperature restoration of edges, corners and entire surfaces during the rolling process. Fast rolling speeds demand rapid heating. You can achieve this by applying high temperature combustion products directly onto the surface of the metal. Our proprietary burners are specially designed to create a flame that is uniform and matches the geometry of the area to be heated.
