UHP furnace

The sound of a UHP furnace.
An electric arc furnace manufactured by Fuchs, with a capacity of 45t, power 36 MVA. The furnace serves to melt steel scrap, which together with slag formers, is loaded into large buckets (called baskets) and then charged into the furnace. The metal is tapped off into a ladle and transported for further processing.

Metal Ravne is the legal successor to Železarna Ravne. The company's range includes a steel plant programme, which starts the production of all their rolled and forged products. Due to technological modernisation over recent years, the company has all the most important machinery for the production of high-quality steel, including a 45t UHP electric arc furnace, a vacuum ladle furnace and a state-of-the-art ‘teeming pit’ for high-class conventional ingots. Their range of products includes ingots, billets with rounded edges and wide flats, with round, flat and square sections, forged bars, machined forgings, discs, bushes, etc.
