A Finkl and Sons

PROJECT:  A Finkl and Sons • Lime & Alloys

Client Request:

A Finkl and Sons requested a complete alloy handling system to receive both Lime and Alloys from trucks, transfer to Day Bin Storage and then reclaim from “pre-weighed” Day Bins to either EAF, LMF, or VTD.

ICD Group Solution:

One (1) enclosed truck unloading station and ten (10) Day Bins (each on load cells); transfer conveyors to:

  1.  Holding Hopper and “pivoting” conveyor to ladle at tap at the EAF;
  2.  Transfer conveyors to Batch Holding Hopper at LMF (complete with “bad batch” chute to grade or loading to hopper “buggy” to transport small amounts of alloys to VTD).

ICD Group designed, fabricated, delivered, and provided on-site supervision to oversee the contractor.  The system included a Level 2 PLC control system with remote I/O to interact with the “Master” control system at the EAF supplied by SMS Siemag. With only a staff of six (6), the system was erected and completed within projected schedule of three (3) months.  The alloy handling system was brought on line with “no-difficulties” and the client was more than impressed with its operation.
