The roller table underneath the Steckel furnace can be retracted in order to provide easy accessibility. Thus, maintenance of the roller tables and furnace flaps can be done offline, outside the heat radiation zone of the Steckel furnaces.
- Maintenance outside of furnaces possible
- Quick access to flap tables
- No cooling down of furnace necessary for maintenance, resulting in longer life times of the Steckel drums
- Shorter maintenance stops
