VINA Kyoei Steel selects Tenova for fume system upgrade

Tenova, through its subsidiary Tenova Goodfellow Inc., Canada, has successfully installed and commissioned a Peak Shaver at VINA Kyoei Steel, Vietnam providing continuous improvement for melt shop operations. In September 2018, VINA Kyoei Steel placed the order for the Peak Shaver, inclusive of hardware components, engineering, CFD modeling, commissioning and installation support.

The objective of the project was to provide the customer with quantifiable solutions that will address the following areas: fume scattering in melt shop; water leakage from cooling duct and gas cooler-breakages; and clogging of gas cooler and buster fan.

Scope of supply included engineering, supply and start-up of both the Peak Shaver drop out box and refractory and the Peak Shaver Tower. The Peak Shaver Tower is the most effective type of cooling system for the EAF primary fumes. Equipment supplied will be made to measure thus ensuring exact fit to the existing structure.

The system was commissioned in late spring 2019. During commissioning, onsite training was provided to ensure that VINA Kyoei Steel personnel were on board with process techniques, operating procedures and maintenance strategies for the equipment supplied.

This sale is a result of a joint collaboration between Tenova Goodfellow Inc. and Sumitomo Shoji Machinex Corporation to bring relevant breakthrough products to the South East Asia Steel Industry.
