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.
