Shandong Iron and Steel Group Rizhao Co. Ltd., a Chinese steel producer, has ordered a Multipas
(multipurpose annealing simulator) from Primetals Technologies. The system will be installed in the
research center of the new iron and steel works under construction south of Rizhao. Multipas will be
used there for product development and process optimization in heat treatment plants. One of the main
reasons for awarding the order to Primetals Technologies was the universal usability of the annealing
simulator. Its use shortens the run-up phase of heat treatment plants and simplifies their optimization. So
far, this is the tenth order for a Multipas system. Commissioning is scheduled for September 2018.
