ANDRITZ MAERZ’ scope of supply includes plant parts and components required for operation and maintenance of the heat treatment plants.
The furnace plants are designed for different charge sizes of 300 tons maximum. The essential performance criteria are precise temperature control of the preset heat curves, the use of coke gas and a natural gas/air mixture in conjunction with impulse and recuperation burners, circulating heating, zone-related tact control, SP-controlled temperature control zones as well as lifting and shifting devices.
Saarschmiede opted for ANDRITZ MAERZ because of its high satisfaction with the previous projects handled. This important order again confirms the ANDRITZ MAERZ expertise in planning and constructing heat treatment systems with high energy efficiency.
