9 July 2018

Spanish steelmaker CELSA Barcelona operating with two 150 ton EAFs and two continuous casters and with a steel production exceeding 2,4 MTPY has awarded MORE (Gemona Del Friuli-Italy) with an order for two EBT-SAND units to inspect and sand fill the each EAF tap hole automatically.

The EBT SAND system has been developed to increase to operators’ safety, avoiding manual operations from the top of the sump panel of the EBT tap hole after tapping. A high resolution camera is installed on the equipment to inspect the EBT tap hole directly from the control desk and manage the sand charging or cleaning operation remotely. The sand is dropped onto the EBT tap hole by gravity from a hopper installed on top of the EBT opening, without any manual operation taking place. The project is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2018.
