Selection of heating furnace for steel billets in rolling mills

The Secret of Choosing a Steel Billet Heating Furnace in a Rolling Mill: Induction or Natural Gas?

At present, the commonly used steel billet induction heating furnace in steel mills mainly includes induction heating furnaces and gas and natural gas heating furnaces.

Both devices can bring the steel billet to a suitable rolling temperature:

The steel billet induction reheating furnace adopts the principle of electromagnetic induction, achieving fast and uniform heating of steel billets, efficient and energy-saving, precise control of heating temperature, and minimal environmental impact. Suitable for production lines that require high temperature and quality requirements, but with high initial investment costs and high requirements for the power grid.

Gas and natural gas heating furnaces generate high-temperature flames by burning gas or natural gas. The cost of heating steel billets is relatively low, and the equipment procurement and operation costs are lower than induction heating furnaces. They are suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises with limited budgets, but their heating efficiency is low, heating time is long, and environmental pollution is relatively large.

Taking into account multiple factors such as cost, efficiency, and environmental protection, Forever’s professional technical engineers suggest that medium and large steel mills choose induction heating furnaces. Although their initial investment is relatively high, in the long run, high efficiency and low energy consumption will result in lower total costs and comply with the current trend of green manufacturing.
