The book contains an analysis of theoretical dependences, bottlenecks and limiting factors of a new technology used in both Consteel and shaft furnaces operating with flat bath. Performances obtained and potentialities of these furnaces are examined. Based on this analysis, a steel melting aggregate of the new type fuel arc furnace FAF has been developed and offered. In comparison with the best modern electric arc furnaces of identical capacity the productivity of FAF is higher by 36% and electrical energy consumption is lower by a factor of 1.8. Environment characteristics are considerably improved.
Presents the new technology of electric arc furnace operation with a flat bath
This analysis reveals bottle necks of the process and has allowed determining optimal ways to increase productivity and reduce electrical energy consumption as well
It covers a theoretical analysis of both, the limiting factors and the basic dependences of the new technology
