Danieli NanoMill 指明了未来的发展方向

“发展中国家的许多小型钢厂都在苦苦挣扎,因为他们没有欧洲众所周知的废金属回收管理,” Danieli Centro Met Swiss 总经理,Bernard Villemin 说到。中东和远东的企业也遇到了这样的障碍。”他们的主要问题在于不能从源头处获得废金属,”他说到。据 Danieli Lynx Danieli Centro Met Swiss 的回收技术专家所说,现在可以借助 Danieli NanoMill 来克服这个问题。

有了 Danieli NanoMill,初始污染水平“适于”保护总体底线。>

作为“满足当地需求极具竞争力的解决方案”,Danieli NanoMill 包括了选自 Danieli Lynx Danieli Akros Henschel 产品组合的现代废金属破碎机和剪切机,用于原料的制备。整个小型钢厂每年可将生产力从 100,000 吨提升至 300,000 吨。“我们的理念适用于两种情况我们为电弧炉准备废金属或我们为现场的感应电炉提供废金属用以生产钢水,”Danieli Centro Met Swiss 总经理,Villemin 解释说。

如果进料废金属属于重型废料,就需要使用金属剪切机来进行预处理。然而,大多数集成到解决方案中的破碎机却起着至关重要的作用,因为其是 NanoMill 中被使用的第一个处理单元。其可压缩和清洁材料,将黑色金属材料和有色金属材料以及可能存在的污染物,例如,织物、PVC、木材和石头等分开。除去废金属中的杂质使得熔炼过程的单位耗电量得以优化。

NanoMill 中使用的破碎机和剪切机使得碎片大小统一,实现了自动化的金属回收。紧凑型集成式破碎机完全是按照小型废金属运营商的要求定制,其每小时可处理 20 吨至大约 50 吨废金属。

位置问题

NanoMill 的愿景与 20 世纪 70 年代 Willy Korf 等企业家开办的小型钢铁厂非常相似。“是一个非常简单的概念且聚焦于废金属源在哪里的问题,” Villemin 解释说。要回答这个问题,你需要问问你自己处理钢筋的客户在哪里和他们是否有权使用足够强的电网。“最重要的是,你需要在有铁路系统或高效道路系统等适当物流和回收基础设施的地方运营,”他补充道。这种解决方案是考虑到特殊目标群体而创建的,即废金属经销商和钢铁制造商。其基本的战略非常容易说清楚,Villemin 补充道,“我们的目标是购买最便宜的废金属然后使用 Danieli 的处理设备来确保最终产品具有最大的最终价值。”因为初始污染水平“适于”保护总体底线,所以回报已证明是非常合算的。“因为获得未经处理的废金属的成本是非常低的,所以使用电弧炉或感应电炉的收益要比进口预处理废金属要高。”这部分是因为在 NanoMill 中的废金属制备可为铜或铝等有色金属材料获取一个较好的出售价值。

仍然真实可靠

早在 20 世纪 70 年代,本行业就已经认识到在距离大都市最近的地方设立小型钢铁厂是最好的,因为这样易于获得车辆废金属、拆卸废金属和其它一些废金属。这部分概念仍然真实可靠,Villemin 强调说。“你们可以说我们的解决方案非常适合大城市,例如那些拥有 1- 5 百万人口,而没有太多炼钢设施的非洲城市,”他说道。最重要的是,装配有集成式破碎机和剪切机的 Danieli NanoMill 解决了这个非常常见的问题:有组织的回收方式或,毫无组织的回收方式。甚至在今天,世界上某些地方的回收管理“还有很多不尽如人意之处”。这种结构差距对小型废金属企业来讲是明显的绊脚石,因为他们必须从其它地方(通常是国外)获得经适当处理的材料。某些国家,例如中东的一些国家,必须将所用的东西从很远的地方搬到现场。“这也就意味着所有的材料都必须运输 2000 3000 km 才能到达设施设备,”Danieli Centro Met Swiss 执行经理,Thomas Klein 说。例如,哈萨克斯坦、蒙古、秘鲁、巴西等国也表达了类似的抱怨,整个国家的废金属未集中起来,也未进行处理,让整个行业没法在国内找到优质的材料并亏损。Klein Villemin 都认为这不只是钱的问题。如果向电炉或感应炉中加载未经处理的废金属,总产出就会比使用经处理过的废金属低很多很多。这就是为什么 Danieli 宣布其新概念的目标是注重从来源到最终产品的整个废金属处理过程。

 内部解决方案

 ”为了解决废金属的问题,我们已经意识到我们必须非常有创新精神,” Villemin 解释说。“我们很快就发现将集成式破碎机作为 NanoMill 的一部分非常有用。以伊拉克为例,我们在伊拉克的首都巴格达设立 NanoMill。其对货车运输的影响是非常大的,其平均物流成本比标准钢铁厂低了 50%。我们基本上可以通过向废金属企业提供其需要的内部处理设备来将业务外包降至最低。”运输不只是废金属企业受益的唯一营运元素。将从国外购买废金属与投资 NanoMill 相比较,在材料成本上就有“最少 20 美元至 40 美元的差异”。此外,在废金属价格波动较大和最终产品价格变化较大的市场上,每分钟都很关键,Villemin 强调说。“金属回收通常是一个时机问题,”他说。“换句话说,您不能浪费时间;你必须快速行动。”自 Danieli 一年半前开始推行其想法后,其已经售出了五套 NanoMill。“我们目前正在于全世界的许多公司洽谈,”Danieli Centro Met Swiss 的团队说。“我相信在未来的三至五年,我们将启动大约 40 个项目,”Villemin 估计说。南美和其它许多地方对集成系统的需求已经点燃。

精简

在解释 NanoMill 的好处时,Klein 强调其并不包含新科技。“基本上,这是重新整理现有的方法你也可以说这是在进行精简以表现我们目标群体的生产,”他说。“重新整理成合适的大小正是 NanoMill 成功的关键。”公司非常看好这个概念的前景;其绝对会更加注重 NanoMill 的制造并致力于成为这种技术的专家,Villemin 说。他认为,考虑到各种以前和即将进行的公司合并,Danieli 将能够“加大”其活动力度。他宣称:“这不是‘成功与否?’的问题,因为这是许多企业需要的正确材料处理过程。”

 集成式破碎机提供了统一的碎片尺寸和自动化的金属回收。

Danieli NanoMill points the way to the future

Danieli NanoMill points the way to the future

“Many small steel plant operations in developing countries are struggling because there is no such thing as scrap recycling management as we know it in Europe,” says Bernard Villemin, managing director of Danieli Centro Met Swiss. Players in the Middle East and the Far East, for example, have been running into this obstacle. “The main problem for them is obtaining scrap from the source”, he says. According to recycling technology specialists Danieli Lynxs and Danieli Centro Met Swiss, there is now a way to overcome this issue in the form of the Danieli NanoMill.

Presented as a “competitive solution for local needs”, the Danieli NanoMill includes modern scrap shredders and shears for raw material preparation which are taken from the portfolios of Danieli Lynxs and Danieli Henschel. The entire mill boasts a productivity of some 100 000 to 300 000 tonnes per year. “Our concept works for two scenarios – either we prepare the scrap for an electric arc furnace on the site to produce liquid steel, “explains Villemin, managing director of Danieli Centro Met Swiss.

For infeed scrap found to be “too heavy”, the scrap shear serves as the required pre-treatment tool. However, the shredder incorporated into the solution plays a leading role as it is usually the first processing unit used within the NanoMill. It is able to densify and clean the material, thus separating the ferrous from the non-ferrous scrap as well as possible contaminants such as textiles, PVC, wood and stones. Getting rid of the impurities in the scrap feed allows for an optimised specific electrical consumption for the melting process.

Ultimately, the shredder and shears used in the NanoMill result in a uniform fragment size, enabling automated metals recovery. The compact, integrated shredder is tailored to the needs of small scrap operators and can handle from 20 tonnes up to approximatively 50 tonnes per hour.

A matter of location

The NanoMill vision is quite similar to the minimill launched in the 1970s by entrepreneurs like Willy Korf. “It is really a very simple concept and focuses on the question of where is the source of the scrap”, explains Bernard Villemin. To answer that, you need to ask yourself the location of the customer – who is dealing with rebar, for example – and whether he has access to a sufficiently strong electrical network. “And most importantly, you need to establish where proper logistics and decent recycling infrastructure, like a railway system of efficient roads, are available” he adds. This solution was created with a special target group in mind, namely independent scrap dealers and steelmakers. The basic strategy is easy to describe, says Villemin, adding: “We aim to buy the cheapest scrap available and to use Danieli’s processing equipment to guarantee the highest possible end-value of the final products.” The pay-off has been proven to be quite worth-while because the initial level of contamination is “optimum” to protect the overall bottom line. “Because the costs of securing the unprepared scrap itself are so very low, the yield in the electric arc furnace or induction furnace is higher than for previously-treated scrap that has to be imported. “This is partly due to the fact than scrap preparation within the NanoMill obtains a good value for the non-ferrous material, such as copper or aluminium, which can then be sold on.

Still ringing true

As early as in the 1970s, the industry recognised that it would be best to set up mini-mills mostly near metropolitan areas because of the easy access to vehicle scrap, demolition scrap and so on. This part of the concept still rings true, notes Villemin. “You could say that our solution fits well in big cities, for instance those in Africa with a population of 1-5 million where they do not have too many steelmaking facilities”, he observes.

Above all, the Danieli NanoMill with its integrated shredder and shear is said to be an answer to a very common issue: the way recycling is organised – or, rather, not organised at all, according to Danieli. Even today, recycling management “leaves much to be desired” in some parts of the world. This structural gap is a significant stumbling block for small scrap players because the must rely on properly-treated material acquired from elsewhere, most often overseas. In some countries, such as those in the Middle East, everything has to be brought to the site over long distances. “This means that all the material has to travel 2000 or 3000 km to end up at the right facility”, states Thomas Klein, executive manager at Danieli Centro Met Swiss. To name but a few nations, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Peru and Brazil have voiced similar complaints, with scrap all across the country not collected and not prepared, leaving the industry to look beyond its own domestic horizon for better-quality material and losing money as a consequence. But it’s not only a matter of money, Klein and Villemin agree. If you load an electric furnace of an induction furnace with untreated scrap, the overall yield will be “much, much lower” in comparison to an operation using prepared scrap. That’s why Danieli declares that the objective of its new concept is to take care of the full process involving scrap, ranging from source to final product.

In-house solution

“In order to solve the scrap issue, we realised we had to be very innovative”, Villemin explains. “We soon figured it would be better to have an integrated shredder close by, as part of a NanoMill. You see, in the case if Iraq, we could install a NanoMill in the country’s capital Baghdad. As a result, the impact on trucking is so big that logistics costs average 50% less than those for a standard mill. Essentially, we allow operations to minimise outsourcing by providing the processing equipment scrap players need, in-house”.

Transport isn’t the only operational element where scrap enterprises stand to benefit financially. When comparing the purchase of scrap from overseas to the option of investing in a NanoMill, there is “a minimum difference of US$20 to US$40 in terms of material costs. Besides, for a market characterised by wide fluctuations in scrap prices and severe changes to the value of the final product, every minute matters, underlines Villemin. “Metals recycling is nearly always a question of timing” he states. “In other words, you cannot waste time, you must act fast.” Since Danieli started promoting its idea about a year and a half ago, it has sold five NanoMills. “We are currently talking to many companies worldwide”, comments the team at Danieli Centro Met Swiss. “I believe we will be able to launch around 40 projects in the following three to five years”, estimates Villemin, who adds that demand for integrated systems has ignited in, among other places, South America.

The integrated shredder provides a unform fragment size and automated metals recovery

 Downsized

In explaining the interest in the NanoMill, Klein highlights that this does not constitute a new technology. “Basically, the existing method was rearranged – you might say downsized – to represent the production of the group we are targeting”, he says. “This rearrangement to the correct sizes is the success behind the NanoMill”. The company is confident about the concept’s prospects; it absolutely intends to focus more on manufacturing NanoMills and thus dedicate itself to becoming a specialist in this technology, says Villemin. He argues that, even in light of various past and upcoming consolidations, Danieli will be in position to “ram up” its activities. And he asserts: “It isn’t a matter of “will it be a success or not?” because this is the right process for materials that many businesses need”.

2013: Mobility Year at Danieli Henschel (up to 960 tonnes, too!)

At Danieli Henschel, our strategy is clear. To be a Full-liner and offer recycling companies all the equipment they need for the processing of scrap metal. Danieli Henschel has its headquarters in Chambéry (France). It joined Italian group Danieli in 2012, at which time it already offered a wide range of:

> Scrap shears with lateral box, from 800 to 1600 tonnes
> Scrap shears with press wings, from 600 to 1250 tonnes
> Inclined shears, from 500 to 1100 tonnes
> Single-acting, double-acting, and triple-acting balers
> Double- and triple-shaft pre-shredders, from 400 to 800 kW
> Vertical shredders, 250 and 600 kW
> Danieli Lynxs hammer shredders, from 800 to 10,000 HP
> Briquetting press, from 2 to 10 t/h

This makes a total of more than 100 different scrap metal processing machines, to process its customers’ materials in the most profitable and productive way possible.

2013 will be Mobility Year, with the arrival of a complete range of mobile shear balers.

Danieli Henschel has already been building CIV 600-8L DM shear balers with press wings for many years; a product that has won over many customers in France, Germany, Poland, Russia, and the Ukraine, to name just some of the countries where you might see these fantastic shear balers that combine mobility with operating power (600 tonnes of shearing power).

In 2011, the CIV 600-8L DM received a technological facelift: next-generation hydraulics, upgraded soundproofing, etc. This is the basis on which Danieli Henschel is now offering a range of higher-powered mobile shear balers, from 720 to 960 tonnes. And so, the Danieli Henschel design office created the following shear balers:

> CIV 720L DM, combining 720-tonne cutting power, a 7.4-m long box, and a five-axle carrier chassis
> CIV 800L DM with 800 tonnes of cutting power, a 7.4-m long box, and six axles
> CIV 960L DM whose cutting force goes up to 960 tonnes, again with a 7.4-m box and six axles.

In short: Danieli Henschel offers its customers the complementary features of mobility, cutting power from 600 to 960 tonnes, and boxes measuring from 6 to 7.40 metres. It doesn’t get much better than that!

INTERPIPE GROUP CORP. & DANIELI HENSCHEL: A successful cooperation

The Dnepropetrovsk NTRP mill is dedicated to the production of seamless pipes for the oil, gas and power industries. This plant also produces pipes for machinery as well as pipes for industrial application and railway wheels and tyres. Scientific Production Group INTERPIPE Corp. is one of the largest private companies in Ukraine. Since 1990 the group is active in various branches of economy such as metallurgy, row materials and machinery. The Corporation’s headquarters is situated in Dniepropetrovsk (Ukraine). The company also has representative offices and agency services in Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Switzerland, USA and in other countries. INTERPIPE group is the forth powerful pipes company in the world, the third largest producer and supplier of railway wheels in the world and the first-rate supplier of silicomanganese products. The Corporation’s share of seamless pipes in the world market equals 4,1%, of railway wheels in the world market – 10%, and 11.4% on the market of manganese ferroalloys. The group comprises also a number of production, service and sales companies. Nowadays around 30 thousands of people are employed for participant enterprises.

A contract for 5 baling shears of 600 tons of cutting force, has been delivered in 2012 … That was the challenge launched by INTERPIPE in December 2011. It required no less than three visits to Danieli Henschel Service specialists’ team to define the exact shearing needs for their request. With the experience gained over 10 years in the CIS, these meetings where the rich exchange between professionalism and technicians INTERPIPE knowledge and experience Danieli Henschel, allowed us to stop the optimal choice for customer with CIV 600-8L I models (600 tons of cutting force press-shear, long box version, with optional bucket).

The call for tenders issued by INTERPIPE has received offers from more than eight companies, and in the final phase, Danieli Henschel was awarded. Danieli Henschel organized a trip to IEC for Ukrainian technicians on various scrap yards using similar press-shears in order to demonstrate that work in extreme weather conditions in no way affects the performance and productivity of Danieli Henschel equipment! This visit allowed the customer’s technicians to ensure the professionalism and quality Danieli Henschel, and ensure their support for the ultimate choice.

The final decision was taken mid-December 2011 and in January 2012, Danieli Henschel and INTERPIPE definitely validated this agreement by signing the final contract. From then on, everything has been implemented to allow delivery of the contract on time. The first four CIV 600-8 LI are now set up on their respective sites; the last one will be soon commissioned in Dnepropetrovsk. INTERPIPE already owned two baling shears CIV 500-8 and two CIV 1000-8 purchased in 2009 and 2010. This means that with now 9 operative machines, INTERPIPE becomes a key customer of DANIELI HENSCHEL in Ukraine.

HEAD: Danieli Henschel takes the innovation bend in head!

DANIELI HENSCHEL now offers its clients a new interface to know and to more accurately assess the performance of their machines. This interface, called HEAD “Henschel Electronic Advanced Design” is available to the operator via a secure website. It may thus regularly consult the history of the machine, data records hydraulic, thermal, production and maintenance.
The interface is also able to adjust the frequency on which the client wants to retrieve data and then import them into a spreadsheet easily exploitable. Thus, an operator of several scrap yards may consult at distance and at any time with just an Internet connection, the operation of all its machines. He may therefore anticipate and organize upstream phases of maintenance of its machines.
