Mechanical Steel Degassing

Mechanical Steel Degassing

  • Secondary steel processes involving vacuum degassing have been in use since the mid 1920s. First with mechanical systems in small scale and then using steam ejectors.
  • Manufacturing Drivers where mechanical systems offer a benefit over steam ejectors:
    • Reduced power consumption – more than 90% saving
    • Increase in productivity of the steel plant – on demand vacuum
    • Savings on primary fuel energy and utilities – zero gas/oil; significantly reduced water consumption
    • Consistent steel quality from heat to heat – same vacuum level every time
    • Production of ultra clean steel – better final vacuum level than steam
    • Development of new steel qualities – lower H2
    • Low maintenance cost – designed to need annual service only
    • Improved co-ordination of all units involved in the production sequence – on demand vacuum always available
    • Better working conditions for the operating personnel – no ejector cleaning
