Improvement of a Secondary Metallurgy Unit

Consulting | Conceptual Mechanical Engineering Study

Improving existing equipment to achieve higher productivity and process stability is the daily challenge of production. Pairing this challenge with limited investment budgets requires for a structured and profound analysis of the equipment and possible improvement suggestions.

In this project, qoncept was commissioned with a conceptual mechanical engineering study to investigate the possibilities of improving the process stability and reducing the production related costs of a secondary metallurgical unit in the steel industry. Due to the very specific design and age of the production unit, the different improvement suggestions had to consider numerous factors and complex plant surroundings. qoncept conceptual engineering study was then taken as the basis for tendering the revamping project.
