Steelmaking

The steelmaking process, where molten iron becomes solid steel, involves several stages of thermal and chemical treatment requiring a variety of refractory linings that are compatible with many application conditions.

 

These linings must have excellent resistance to steel and basic slag corrosion, as well as high thermal shock and oxidation resistance.

 

Saint-Gobain services this market with innovative refractories solutions that present high performances and contribute to enhanced steel quality.

Reheating Furnace

Saint-Gobain Ceramics and SEPR offer steelmakers a comprehensive range of products for reheating furnaces. Magmalox® and Alumina products are used in both pusher and walking-hearth furnaces. This range is based on over 60 years‘ experience in minimizing costs and soak-zone repairs while raising productivity. 

Magmalox® products help steelmakers to optimize the behavior of each area of the furnace, to balance wear and to substantially increase campaign life. Record tonnage of reheated slab or billet per campaign:

  • Improved surface quality of reheated products,
  • Easy to install, rapid heat-up, no (or very light) intermediate repairs, hence reduced downtime,
  • Increase life & tonnage of steel produced by campaign.
Significantly increased furnace life
Superior surface quality of reheated products
Reduced maintenance costs
