Steel Industry

The steel industry is considered one of the most energy-intensive industries because of its production processes. Energy is consumed in several stages, from raw materials preparation, ironmaking, steelmaking, finishing, to heat treatment. 

As more than 90% of the energy liberated in steel reheating furnaces, which are primarily used to heat steel shapes to desired temperatures, is transferred by thermal radiation, the improvement of heat transfer from furnace to steel is crucial. Refractory coating materials such as emisspro® can effectively increase radiative heat transfer and save energy without compromising process reliability and product quality.
