Revamp & Modernization
Being a driver in the transformation of the metals industry towards decarbonization and sustainability, Tenova LOI Thermprocess offers innovative thermoprocessing solutions for today and tomorrow. We focus on the development and implementation of fossil-free annealing technologies, especially Hydrogen, as well as electrical heating capabilities and the reduction of emissions for new plants as well as revamps.
In the course of the development towards a climate-neutral society, the use of energy-efficient and CO2-free processes is essential. Tenova LOI Thermprocess offers a wide variety of innovative revamping and modernization solutions for industrial furnace systems. This includes the heat treatment of metals for batch annealing plants and continuous heat treatment lines for steel strip, heavy plates, pipes & tubes, forgings as well as aluminium melting and recycling plants.
For the reduction of the CO2- footprint of the transport sector, electrical steel grades are required for high efficient electric motors. Non-grain oriented (NGO) electrical steel with optimum magnetic and mechanical properties is essential for efficient electric motors. Additionally, the electrification of the transport sector requires the provision of a comprehensive and efficient charging infrastructure. Grain oriented (GO) electrical steel strip is used for this purpose. Tenova LOI Thermprocess is one of the few companies offering innovative enhancements for this plant technology for the production of electrical steel strip of both grades.
Additionally advanced high strength and ultra-high strength steels are used to decrease the weight of car bodies and thus reducing CO2 emissions. Steel development is driving steels to ever-higher strengths and the plant technology must follow the developments, above all in order to comply with the annealing and cooling conditions for this in series production. Therefore, there is a tendency towards rapid cooling and higher annealing temperatures. Tenova LOI Thermprocess has the knowhow and references to retrofit older systems with various components independent of the original manufacturer.
The world-wide sales network not only offers revamp and modernization solutions for our installed base and the brands that founded LOI Thermprocess - Ludwig, OFAG and INDUGAS – but also for the companies that have been absorbed into LOI Thermprocess over the decades, such as Nassheuer, Dr. Schmitz & Apelt and GKI-OFU as well as third-party equipment.
As each plant is unique, there is not “the one solution” for modernizing existing plants and many details have to be considered. Our experts know your equipment and rely on a wealth of experience and proven references in many different countries.
