Electric Arc Furnaces in Mini-steelplants

  • N. H. McBroom


To set down in 1982 a review of electric arc furnace technology is a daunting prospect. No sooner is the ink dry than the perspective changes. One thing does not change, however. That is the prime purpose of the steelworks electric arc furnace, which is to melt (and in most cases refine)scrap or pre-reduced iron as rapidly, consistently and efficiently as possible.
