Conveying Scrap Steel

Customer Challenge

A premiere producer of hot rolled coiled bands of steel was restarting a facility and needed a final conveyor in an Electric Arc Furnace charging system handling scrap steel directly into hot furnace. Mounted on an indexing car, the conveyor can retract to allow tipping and pouring of molten steel for further processing. Alternatively, the car extends the conveyor into feeding position into the side of the furnace.

Triple/S Solution

Rugged 4 shaft eccentric drive system produces non-harmonic slow forward-quick return differential motion on the horizontal plane only. This unique action reduces operating reaction loads into the structure and foundation – required for mobility in and out of feed position. Variable speed operation helps furnace charging efficiency and operation.
