Bar Upgrade and Modification Continental Design and management was awarded an EPC Contract to design, procure components and complete construction for Timken Corporation's Latrobe Steel Bar Mill Upgrade. The upgrade represents improvements in the process product quality, as Timken will change from a gas fired furnace to a new state of the art induction heating furnace. The change will allow the Owner to process the product under a nitrogen blanket that will protect the product during the finishing process.
side benefit of the project is that be changing to an induction heated furnace
and eliminating the gas fired furnace, the NOx emissions are significantly
reduced from the operation.
