EBNER supplies a HITT bell annealer for high-temperature anneals of grain-oriented (GO) electrical strip

The increasing customer demand for higher coil weights and improved temperature uniformity, combined with the need for the lowest possible operating costs when conducting high-temperature anneals of grain-oriented electrical strip, has lead a well-known American customer to choose EBNER as the supplier of a new high-temperature bell annealer facility.

In contrast to other existing designs, our HITT (High Temperature & Tight) furnace provides a complete, gas-tight separation of the workload space and combustion chamber. This separation allows a precisely-controlled atmosphere to be achieved, with significantly lower hydrogen consumption. A special patented coil support enables radiant heat to uniformly and efficiently heat coils in the workload space, leading to a significant reduction in scrap. This system ensures the shortest possible processing times, providing the highest productivity paired with the best possible quality and high throughput.

The facility will go into operation in third quarter of 2022
