  • RH vacuum degassing plant with dry mechanical pump from Primetals Technologies receives FAC at AHMSA

    Recently, Mexican steel producer Altos Hornos de Mexico, S.A.B. de C.V. (AHMSA) issued the Final Acceptance Certificate (FAC) for a twin RH vacuum degassing plant supplied by Primetals Technologies. The 150-ton RH plant was installed in AHMSA´s converter Steel Works # 2 in Monclova. It is able to handle 50 charges per day, the equivalent of about two million metric tons of liquid steel per year. The RH plant is operated with a dry mechanical pump solution. This saves operation costs and increases flexibility for integration in the production process. A space saving combined vessel ladle lifting system (CVL) is also part the RH plant. The new plant allows AHMSA to produce steels with very low hydrogen content, required for applications in the oil and gas industri.
