BUTTING HeRo® – The heat resisting furnace roller from BUTTING
The BUTTING HeRo® - Heat Resisting Roller - is a product solution developed at our plant: a heat resisting furnace roller which is used by the steel industry in roller-hearth furnaces for the manufacture of long and flat products.
Most of the furnace rollers used hitherto are water cooled, cause considerable energy and maintenance costs and are not noted for their longevity. This is where our uncooled furnace roller comes in very handy: the BUTTING HeRo® offers a long service life due to its very low tendency to oxidation and minor mechanical wear. This means considerable cost reductions, as furnace stand-stills and maintenance costs are avoided. The energy costs are also lowered, as cooling with water can be dispensed with.
Depending on its intended use our "hero" is individually produced from appropriate materials like Alloy 602 CA, 601 H or 800 H. Our furnace rollers can be produced in outside diameters from NB 100 up to 700 and wall thicknesses of up to 60 mm.
