Arc Furnace Melt Systems
Electric arc furnaces are a quick-to-start and quick-to-stop alternative when steel or metal alloy production does not require the continuous production capacity of cupola furnaces. These arc melt systems produce ferrous alloys and steel from scrap iron injected with graphite electrodes, creating an arc that heats and melts the metal. EC&S has extensive experience procuring, installing and commissioning arc furnaces for foundries and parts manufacturers worldwide.
Arc Furnaces Offer Flexibility and Cost Savings
Electric arc furnaces can be operated on a varied production schedule that responds to the ups and downs of demand. EC&S customers often realize notable energy savings by operating furnaces during off-peak periods when electric rates are at their lowest. Our skilled team has the experience to advise you on these methods of efficient, cost-effective operation.
