Roller Hearth Furnaces for Thin Slab

Tenova roller hearth furnaces implementing latest-generation direct rolling technology are suitable for slab lengths of 30-50 m and, in special cases, for endless rolling of bar lengths up to 300 m. Typical thickness ranges between 40 to 90 mm. With a constant focus on critical components such as rollers and burners, Tenova designs outstanding roller hearth furnaces. Milestones include the longest furnace, the furnace with the highest temperature and the first operating furnace with three lines.

Among our references is the only roller hearth furnace in existence, reheating stainless steel thin slabs and discharging up to 1250°C (special rolls are used for the application).

In addition to complete installations, we provide advanced modifications and solutions to enhance pusher furnaces including:

  • Custom design burners and combustion system
  • Shuttle or swivel furnaces
  • Stainless steel & silicon steel applications
  • Proprietary low maintenance roll design
  • Level 1 & tracking systems
  • Level 2 control and thermal models
  • Process simulator for designing, planning and de-bottlenecking facilities.
  • Value for Money

    Value for Money

    • Reduced OPEX due to the energy saving subsequent to the hot charging
    • Overall reduced OPEX due to the direct finishing by-passing the roughing mill
    • Long lasting rolls due to the optimized design 18 months guaranteed on metallic parts and 15 on refractory
    • Easy maintenance operation (roll change in less than 10 minutes)
