In the continuous endeavor for quality production, KUWAIT STEEL has invested in a “inert roof” type Ladle Refining Furnace where automated metallurgical process control systems ensure the utmost efficient refining and alloying of steel obtained from the Electric Arc Furnace.
Inert gas stirring is performed at the ladle bottom all through the steel refining process.
The Ladle furnace ensures greater homogeneity of liquid steel and thus produces steel products with more uniform chemical composition, mechanical properties and provides flexibility to produce a variety of steel grades of international standards such as ASTM, BS, Din, JIS, etc.
The Ladle Furnace is equipped with an 18 MVA transformer for optimum performance.
Once the desired chemical composition and temperature is reached, the steel is transferred to the Continuous Casting machine.
