ShowcaSe machinery Heat Treatment Line Deutsche Edelstahlwerke GmbH has placed an order with SMS group for a heat treatment line for its Witten site, Germany, facility. For the first time, this will enable bar steel in the size range up to 250 mm diameter to be heat treated directly in the rolling line. The separate heat treatment process that was previously required can then be eliminated, thus saving a large propor-tion of the heating energy. Throughput times of the material will be significantly reduced, intermediate storage is no lon-ger required. The new heat treatment line will be integrated into the material flow of the existing rolling mill. Here individual bars can be transported on a roller table to a temperature equalization furnace. Depending on the quality demands, this process is employed during the produc-tion of RSH steel (stainless, acid and heat-resistant), high-grade structural steel or tool steel. After heating, the For treatment of bar steel in rolling line bars are cooled selectively to the desired temperature on a cooling section so that the envisaged properties are precisely achieved. This is controlled by the CCT ® (Controlled Cooling Technology) simu-lation model. The temperature equalization fur-nace is constructed as a walking-beam furnace and designed for energy effi -ciency, temperature uniformity over bar length and cross-section as well as low emissions. A level 2 system ensures the efficient operation of the furnace. The system calculates the thermal profile of the bars. Each zone temperature setpoint is monitored by the level 2 system in or-der to ensure proper heating of the bars.
