AOD converter and dedusting system from Primetals Technologies brought into operation for SIJ Acroni

Print

In April, an AOD converter with a capacity of 95 metric tons and a dedusting system from Primetals

Technologies were brought into operation for SIJ Acroni d.o.o, a Slovenian steel producer belonging to

the Slovenian Steel Group (SIJ). This has given SIJ Acroni another steel production option to add to its

existing process route and increased its production capacity by more than 20 percent. The new AOD

converter has expanded SIJ Acroni's product portfolio, taken the load off the existing production

processes in the steel works, and improved product quality. It also provides a higher flexibility on the raw

material side to allow the usage of less expensive charging materials and to consequently reduce the

production costs. Primetals Technologies received the order in the middle of 2015.
