Specialty materials producer ATI has started up a new electric arc furnace at its Latrobe, Pa., facility. The EAF, supplied by Primetals Technologies, is designed to process a wide range of input materials and will replace equipment coming to the end of its useful life.
The new furnace is part of ATI’s transformation of its Specialty Rolled Products business, expanding advanced capabilities through a highly efficient footprint to serve customers in aerospace, defense and other highly demanding markets. The new furnace increases flexibility and reliability while reducing energy consumption and maintenance requirements, the company claims.
Primetals Technologies engineered the electric arc furnace especially for foundry applications: It is suitable for melting as well as for refining.
