Industrial Furnaces: Electric Arc Furnace Contract Manufacturing in the International Market

Electric Arc Furnace manufactured by The Rose Corporation

The electric arc furnace pictured above was fabricated by the Rose Corporation for a customer that was building a new foundry in Santiago, Chile. It is a duplication of an arc furnace originally designed and manufactured in the 80s for that same customer. The original furnace performed so well the customer wanted an exact duplicate. It was shipped via ocean containers for a ten-week installation in Chile; however, the new furnace benefited from upgraded, state-of-the-art furnace controls, incorporating The Rose Corporation’s Mark X Regulator Control System.

This 10-ton capacity furnace is used in the production of high-grade alloys for manufacturing specialized mining equipment.  It has a one-hour tap-to-tap cycle.

The roof swings away using hydraulic cylinders, and the furnace tilts 45 degrees when tapping the molten metal into the ladle. The furnace is powered by a 6 MVA transformer. The 10-inch electrodes will draw three 120V/12,000 arcs to the steel.

Using its own engineers and service technicians, TRC Field Services provided on-site installation and commissioning services.
