Tenova Pyromet has vast experience in the design and construction of granulation plants to treat Ferrochrome, Iron, Cu-Mi matte and furnace slag.
Tenova Pyromet has vast experience in the design and construction of wet granulation plants. The wet slag granulation process involves pumping water into the slag cold runner via a blower box to quench the molten slag. The in-house designs have been proven in numerous applications and have shown to be both robust and reliable.

Saldanha Steel Pig Iron Granulation Plat
Customer Project name Iscor Ltd South Korea 2002
Tenova Pyromet designed, installed and commissioned Southern Africa's first pig iron granulation plant at Saldanah Steel. The plant represents a significant breakthrough in the handling of molten pig iron.
The granulation plant converts molten iron from the Corex plant into solid granules, which permits the iron to be sorted in manageable form. The only emission resulting from the process is water vapour. The iron granules are produced from excess iron produced in the Corex unit. The production of iron is the first stage in the process to produce hot rolled coil at Saldanah Steel.
Silicon Metal RefiningIt will be necessary to refine Si metal with oxygen and air, in order to achieve a high degree of cleanliness (Al, Ca). For this, an internal type of refining which works with technical oxygen and air, which is introduced into the melt, is used.
Tapping / Casting Fume ExtractionTenova Pyromet tapping fume extraction systems are located above tapholes to capture the fumes released during the tapping process
