UHT commissions CLU for FeMn refining at Transalloys, South Africa.

Transalloys has by the end of 2020 taken a new 27 tonnes CLU® converter refining plant into operation for refining of high carbon ferromanganese (HCFeMn) to medium carbon ferromanganese (MCFeMn) products at their plant in eMalahleni, located 100 km east of Pretoria, South Africa. The first heat was processed on September 15, 2020, and the complete ramp-up of production was reached by mid-October, 2020.

The CLU® converter refining equipment with level 1 and level 2 process control was supplied by UHT. The converter is equipped with both a top lance and submerged tuyeres to allow for a combined blowing practice which has proven advantageous for ferromanganese refining.
