Schenck Process teamed up with Storage & Transfer Technologies (STT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Carmeuse, to launch a new lime injection system for electric arc furnace (EAF) steel plants globally. The collaboration combines the expertise of each company’s focus on lime handling, dense phase conveyance, and lime manufacturing to bring an effective offering to the market. Customized to meet each steel plant’s site and lime requirements, the system components include truck offloading, silo storage, pneumatic conveying, piping and controls up to the injection nozzle. This system can be installed in new sites or integrated into existing sites.

Safe, efficient, accurate, and reliable operation is ensured through decades of knowledge in lime manufacturing, lime conveyance, and steel industry experience.

“We are very excited to partner with STT to provide the steel industry a more comprehensive and accurate lime injection solution, which is the culmination of many years of development and testing of injection technology by Schenck Process and builds upon its core competency in precision weighing and feeding,” says Brad Suter, Director of Sales at Schenck Process.

“No other company can bring together this range of expertise from how the raw material characteristics and manufacturing impact the flowability, to how lime is transferred through the system, up to point of application,” says Phil Piggott, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Carmeuse. Quinn Shortal, Operations Director, Engineering at STT notes that “each site has its own unique needs, and we work together with our customers to ensure the system is designed to fit specific requirements and exceed their expectations.”
