Eco Slide Discs can be used for up to several months instead of just a few days
Their inherent self-cleaning effect can reduce the risk of material deposits falling onto the strip and damaging its surface
They eliminate maintenance activities and time-consuming welding and grinding repair work
Major savings can be made on wear parts
Primetals Technologies has received an order from ArcelorMittal Eisenhüttenstadt, a German steel producer, to install Eco Slide Disc side guides on the entry side beams of a coiler in a hot-strip mill. They will replace the conventional wear plates. The reference plant at voestapline Stahl has shown that the rotatable discs can be used for up to several months, whereas the previous equipment lasted for only a few days. The new strip side guides have an inherent self-cleaning effect, which can reduce the risk of material deposits falling onto the strip and damaging its surface. The Eco Slide Discs are scheduled to be installed at ArcelorMittal Eisenhüttenstadt in July 2017.
