Adding a significant asset in coke oven technology
By having integrated the coke oven machinery segment of the Germany company Schalker Eisenhütte Maschinenfabrik, Paul Wurth has substantially strengthened its portfolio in cokemaking technology, including coal charging cars, pusher machines, coke transfer cars, wet quenching cars, crane systems for dry quenching as well as maintenance and service cars.
Related automation and control systems ensure the safe operation of the battery with all travelling steps being fully automated and accurately scheduled. All machines are equipped with highly efficient emission control systems, so that the most stringent environmental regulations are met. Moreover, to improve cycle times, enhance plant liability and reduce manpower, the coke oven machines by Paul Wurth can be equipped with an automation system for total manless operation.
Thanks to this state-of-the-art technology, the most modern and largest coke oven batteries in the world can be equipped with automated coke oven machines which meet the highest standards in terms of coke productivity, emission control, user friendliness and plant safety.
