Nucor Steel

alloy system

5 days

Completely installed during Christmas shut-down

New system to add alloys at tap and trim. Four main 200 ft. 3-hoppers fed

by "Super Sacks" and mounted on load cells to give < 5lb accuracy

on each batch. Alloys are fed to the ladle by a pivoting / liftable chute

and to the trim station by belt conveyor and pivoting chute.


This system significantly improves the accuracy of the heats and personnel safety.
