As a truly global industry we know that smelting plant owners and operators around the world want to ensure their huge investment is utilised to its maximum in this very competitive sector. This requires the most reliable plants, with the highest yield and the lowest cost to run.
We have over 100 years' experience designing and manufacturing tailor-made, non-standardised flow control equipment. This involves producing valves of up to 6m in diameter which are tailored to individual plant requirements and last for the total plant lifecycle (25 plus years). We have also developed new technologies to help reduce your production costs such as the no-bell top charger and top gas recovery turbines.
Our key products are: hot blast valves, up to 2.5m in diameter which can withstand temperatures of 1,650°C with energy saving designs that, when closed, are man-safe; and goggle valves, up to 5m in diameter which can withstand operational temperatures of 1,100°C.
Top-gas Recovery Turbines (TRT) and No-Bell Top Charger (NBTC) for blast furnaces are also key products. TRTs are specially designed low revolution turbines that use the hot gases from the blast furnace to generate power. The design has been optimised to reduce all draft and friction to produce a high efficiency turbine with the lowest losses. They can simultaneously support two blast furnaces. The NBTC has been designed to generate better gas exploitation which leads to increased output from the furnace and also greatly reduces the consumption of the reducing agents – a significant saving for plant owners/operators.
