BOC and MORE expand energy injection system product offering to steel recycling industry

BOC Gases : 21 September, 2006  (Company News)
BOC, a major supplier to the global steel industry, and MORE S.r.l., a worldwide leader in supplying chemical energy and injection systems to electric arc furnace steelmaking, announce the next step in their five-year partnership, the MORE Hi_JET.
In order to meet the growing global demand for recycling steel, BOC and MORE have developed the MORE Hi_JET, the next generation to the original BOC Burnjector. Hi_JET has proven itself already in over 18 installations worldwide. The single, compact device utilizes the unique capabilities of simultaneously injecting a powerful stream of carbon particles, a supersonic oxygen jet and a high velocity oxyfuel burner, which can provide a productivity improvement of more than 10 percent along with significant electrical energy savings.

“We are focused on continually improving what we do in order to deliver new technology to the marketplace,” said Lucio Londero, MORE’s president. “Partnering with BOC, we can provide customers with an exceptional and highly advanced chemical energy package for EAF steelmaking. With the wider product line, which now includes the MORE Hi_JET, a system can be customized for every EAF furnace to optimize each melting process,” added Londero.

MORE is the exclusive licensee and manufacturer of BOC’s Burnjector technology, combining its original chemical energy injection technology, known as a Module, with the Hi_JET, for use in EAFs. The two companies recently expanded their licensing agreement to grant MORE exclusive worldwide rights to BOC’s Burnjector technology for use in EAFs, and permitting BOC to act as the selling partner for MORE’s complete line of products and services, in certain geographies, such as many areas of Asia, where there is an increasing demand.

Ken Grieshaber, director combustion processes, BOC, said, “While BOC has supported the sales of MORE products worldwide for more than five years, the expanded licensing agreement will allow BOC to better meet the growing demand by steel producers in those geographies where its strong presence provides easy access for customers to attain the Burnjector and MORE Hi_JET technology, such as India and China.”

EAFs melt scrap metal for recycling. Oxygen and solid carbon must be injected into the molten steel to promote efficiency and ensure the product meets certain specifications. MORE’s Module is a combination of two distinct injectors that deeply penetrate molten steel with oxygen, and where carbon is used for iron oxide reduction, while simultaneously operating as a high-efficiency burner. BOC’s Burnjector, with its pioneering nozzle, is part of a patented system that includes a supersonic flame shroud surrounding supersonic stream of oxygen and solids such as carbon, and has been the starting point to develop the Hi_JET.
