Metso Outotec Kaldo Furnace technology draws on our wealth of experience in traditional top blown rotary converters (TBRC) in the steel and non-ferrous industries. Instead of using separate vessels for smelting, reducing, and converting, all of these steps can be executed with the Metso Outotec Kaldo Furnace.
The system is compact and fully encapsulated with a furnace casing, thus facilitating ventilation of the whole section, including the ladle car below the furnace. Stray emissions are prevented and a good and safe working environment is provided.
The heating and converting processes are performed by introducing a water-cooled burner and converting lances mounted in lance wagons with a hydraulic drive. The cooling system is equipped with a reliable security system for preventing water leakages. A multi-purpose utility lance can also be added for flame monitoring, temperature control, and refractory wear measurement.
