In mid-October Schad began work on a re-heat furnace re-build project at a Northeastern Ohio steel mill.
The project included replacement of refractory materials throughout the furnace including those in the hearth, extractor piers, burner walls, and roof. Schad also installed insulation shapes on all of the new furnace skid pipes.
In order to meet the project’s ambitious schedule, Schad had multiple crews working around the clock and as many as three refractory pumps located on the work-site. All totaled, Schad installed over 1.5 million pounds of refractory materials in order to complete the work.
“It was really critical that our machines worked properly with no down time, and they did. Our pump operators did a great job operating and maintaining the equipment throughout the project,” said Schad Project Manager, Rich Hull.
