Special solutions

Steel Production Equipment

Through our vast experience from specialised equipment design and steel operations we have the possibility to tailormake steel production equipment for the operation of meltshops. This includes cars and tilters for ladles and slagpots, raw material handling systems, gas mixing stations, hydraulic converter drives.

Gas mixing station

The UHT gas mixing station is designed with high quality measurement and gas control equipment to ensure accurate and repeatable converter refining. Each process gas has its own control loop to allow any mix of gases, for example argon and nitrogen.

  • Complete gas mixing station with a dedicated PLC

  • Preassembled and FAT tested before delivery
  • Compact unit design with stainless steel piping

UHT has installed several gas mixing stations, for example at Sandvik-SMT and Acerinox Columbus Stainless.

Hydraulic converter

Hydraulic Converter Drive

UHT has developed a solution for converter tilting where the converter is tilted with a hydraulic drive unit and a separate power-pack unit. Due to this, a mechanical gearbox is no longer needed.

The hydraulic drive is implemented by UHT on new converters and during revamps as replacement of electromechanical drives on existing converters.

  • Full torque from zero speed in any direction

  • Rapid and direct control

  • Prevention of shocks and vibrations

  • High availability and reduced maintenance

  • Short project and on-site installation time

Mechanical equipment

Vessel Design

UHT designs the converter vessel according to the stainless steel or ferroalloy producer’s specific requirements and processes.

  • Reduced refractory wear and relining cost

  • Designed to control splashing, charging, de-slagging and tapping

  • Side or bottom blown including top lance solution

Additional Mechanical Equipment

  • Trunnion ring with bearing

  • Additive system

  • Tuyeres and gas distribution

  • Off-gas hood system

  • Car for ladle and slagpot
