INTRODUCTION

The Tosçelik Hot Strip Mill was originally commissioned in 2009 with an evaporative cooling circuit to remove heat from the skids in the walking beam slab reheat furnace supplied by SinoSteel, China. The natural gas burning furnace has a 250 tons/hour maximum cold charge slab capacity and its evaporative cooling system wastes a significant amount of thermal energy and water by releasing excess heat as steam. In 2010, Tosçelik wanted to install electric generators driven by an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) process to convert excess heat into electrical power and significantly reduce the amount of make-up water consumed by this cooling system. The ORC units and accompanying control system were commissioned and have been in operation since September 2011. This paper will review the equipment selected for this upgrade and present data quantifying the energy saving benefit realized from this project.
