WATER COOLED POWER CABLES

I²r supplies the steel industry with several custom products and services. We design/build water-cooled power cables for electric arc furnaces (EAF), ladle metallurgy furnaces (LMF) and submerged arc furnaces (SAF). We work to understand the unique circumstances surrounding your operation, which allows us to design the best cable for you. From the conductor package to the outer hose construction and protective sleeve, we strive to maximize efficiency and improve durability. We recognize the effort required to remove/ install these large cables, and realize it is not a task that Maintenance wants to perform unexpectedly.

* Bend radius will vary with design construction.
* Hose construction impacts bend radius. Generally, bend radius is approximately four (4) times the inside diameter dimension of the hose.  Please contact I²r for cable/hose criteria specific to your application.
ARC FURNACE DOOR CABLE COVER HOSE
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONSview specs
Hose consists of 100% non-conductive Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) that is reinforced with multiple plies of polyester tire cord, which is highly resistant to abrasion. Vulcanized bumpers can be spiral or annular, and are bonded to the hose during construction. Woven fiberglass is our standard thermal protective cover material. We offer an array of protective materials specific to your application requirements. Please contact I²r to learn more.

ELECTRO-MAGNETIC STIRRERS

I²r services and remanufacturers electro-magnetic stirring (EMS) devices used in steel making applications. We have over 100 hundred years of combined experience in the comprehensive rebuilding and servicing of EMS devices - including caster stirrers and ladle stirrers. We are familiar with the various OEM designs and well aware of the application demands. Based on our experiences, we have employed several enhancement techniques that depart from the original equipment, which have proven to increase the reliability and longevity of the EMS device.
