Kanthal, headquartered in Hallstahammar, Sweden, and Ceba, located in Trescore Balneario, Italy, have formed a strategic partnership to provide sustainable electric solutions for heating processes such as ladle and tundish preheating, thereby advancing the shift towards green technology.

The steel and metal industry is seeking ways to decarbonise production, increasing the demand for sustainable heating solutions. Currently, processes such as ladle and tundish preheating and drying rely on fossil fuels and open flames powered by gas burners. Through this partnership, Kanthal and Ceba aim to broaden their capabilities and resources, offering electrified alternatives to these processes. This advancement will not only help reduce carbon emissions but also enhance workplace safety.

This collaboration combines Kanthal’s advanced industrial heating technology with Ceba’s expertise in engineering and manufacturing industrial heating equipment. This partnership delivers all-encompassing electrified solutions for industrial heating needs across different sectors. Ceba will develop equipment incorporating Kanthal’s existing heating technology.

“We’re thrilled about this partnership as it will enable the market introduction of electric ladle and tundish heaters, which is something that the industry is asking for,” shared Rickard Dahlgren, Acting President – Heating Systems.

“We are proud of this strategic partnership which is the result of a shared vision and commitment to reduce carbon emission in the metal industry, providing a significant step for a more sustainable future. We look forward to sharing the innovative systems that will emerge from this partnership,” stated Cesare Baldassari, chairman of the board of directors and founder of Ceba.
