Revamping of the furnaces is in many cases the best choice for increasing the production profitability in accordance with criteria of sustainability.
A considerable number of reheating furnaces erected in the last decades of the past century are still in operation today. Such furnaces can’t often continue yielding acceptable throughput, product quality, fuel consumption, and pollutant emissions. According to the market demand comes the time to take a decision about the future of a furnace: continue squeezing the plant, stop or dismantle it, maybe building a new one or most likely restructuring. The answer is the result of an overall technical and economic analysis where the market demand is fulfilled only by a profitable and sustainable production.
