Fives and CELSA launch Stein Digit@l Furnace® in France

Fives and CELSA Group fired an ultra-low emission reheating furnace for a brand-new wire rod rolling mill in the CELSA France complex. The new reheating furnace – Stein Digit@l Furnace® – has a capacity of 120 metric tonnes per hour and is designed to charge hot billets of different sections and lengths directly from the caster at 800°C to significantly reduce the ecological footprint. The final products, wire rods and bars, will be serving the construction market boosting the economic dynamism of the region.

The Stein Digit@l Furnace® features the best available technology, including complete digital on/off control and heat curve control for optimum combustion with the billet discharge surface temperature at 1,170°C.

The furnace is equipped with the latest generation of AdvanTek® central wide flame burners. AdvanTek® burners from Fives are a steelmakers’ choice for a green footprint and reduced energy consumption, with the lowest NOx emissions – less than 50 ppm.

CELSA Group has been a long-term partner of Fives, having ordered overall six Stein Digit@l Furnace® for their plants in Spain and Poland, and now in France due to furnace unrivaled performance.
