Conarc® (converter arcing)Electric steelmaking
The traditional steelmaking processes (BOF – Basic Oxygen Furnace and EAF Electric Arc Furnace) only handle a limited charge material mix (HM, scrap, DRI – direct reduced iron, and HBI – hot briquetted iron). The CONARC® technology, on the other hand, combines the advantages of both processes (decarburization and melting). That ensures you can process any ratio of hot and cold charge material to take advantage of availability and best prices
The CONARC® process is ideal for low and medium carbon grades with lowest phosphorus levels.
