Italy’s Danieli reports that it has received orders for two high-productivity and H3 rolling mills to be installed and put into operation in Russia during 2020.
A press release said that AEMZ (Abinsk Electric Steel Works Ltd.) ordered a new 600,000-tpy H3 wire rod line to be installed at Abinsk, in the Krasnodar region. The new mill will produce wire rod coils, 5.5- to 16-mm, smooth rounds, and 6- to 12-mm, quenched and microalloyed rebar, for construction, welding wire and CHQ grades.
The second order is from NPZ (Novorossiysk Rolling Plant LLC), which ordered a new 500,000-tpy H3 wire rod mill to be installed at Novorossiysk, also in the Krasnodar region. The mill will roll 150 x 150 billets into 5.5- to 16-mm wire rod and deformed wire rod in coils weighing up to 2.1 metric tons.
Depending on customer requirements, Danieli notes that its H3 mills operate at over 100 m/sec. They consist of an ESS (Energy Saving System) cantilever-type and SHS housingless stands and fast-finishing blocks; a water-cooling line suitable for wire-rod quenching and controlled cooling, and a loop-laying head, rotary reforming tube and easy-down system for a perfect coil pattern.
Danieli’s H3 mills are typically supplied along with Danieli Centro Combustion reheating furnaces equipped with the latest-generation, ultra-low NOx emission, flat MAB flameless burners. Danieli Automation provides process control, power and instrumentation—like medium-voltage Q-DRIVE, HiPROFILE LITE and HiSECTION measuring devices—for in-line tracking and product monitoring, and optical system for rolling guides set-up, and for rolls and guides alignment for the finishing block.
