Technical innovations for improved safety and reliability on base metal furnaces
Tenova Pyromet has a long history of designing and supplying electric smelting, slag cleaning and matte settling furnaces and equipment to the base metals industry. Based on ongoing client feedback, Tenova Pyromet has developed a number of innovative solutions to improve both the safety and reliability of key furnace areas. Tenova’s Söderberg electrode column design has been adapted for base metal furnace applications, reducing the need for water cooling above the furnace roof to improve safety and reduce maintenance due to water leaks. Significant work has been done over the years to develop sidewall copper cooling systems, including our MAXICOOL® intensive copper coolers, to improve furnace campaign life. Currently work is being done on alternative cooling mediums to improve safety. Finally, the Tenova NovaLance™ has been developed to improve Top Submerged Lance furnace availability by preventing lance bending. The paper discuss these developments and review performance on existing applications.
