Danieli scores sizable shredder order in Mexico


Italy-based steel mill and metal recycling equipment and technology provider Danieli & C. S.p.A. says its Danieli Centro Recycling business unit has received a large order from Mexico-based electric arc furnace (EAF) steelmaker Deacero.

Deacero announced this September its intention to add some 1.2 million tons of EAF steelmaking capacity in its home country.

Now, according to Danieli, Deacero has ordered five Danieli Centro Recycling “steel scrap shredding plants to process light domestic scrap and car bodies.”

According to Danieli, each new plant will feature shredders plus downstream “ferrous scrap cleaning and nonferrous separation” lines.

The downstream lines will include magnetic separation designed to ensure “a high level of scrap cleanliness,” while what the equipment maker calls “flexible inline/offline nonferrous separation” will be installed to recover zorba.

Four out of the five shredding plants will be driven by 2,000-horsepower (hp) shredders for 50 tons per hour of ferrous output each. The fifth shredder, says Danieli, will be equipped with a 4000-hp motor for potential production of 100 tons per hour.

“All shredders will be powered by Danieli-patented inverter drives, which guarantee lower operational costs due to energy consumption savings up to 15 percent,” says the technology provider.

The ferrous shred produced by the new plants will be mainly used by Deacero to feed its Danieli melt shops in Mexico, says Danieli.

The equipment destined for Mexico will be manufactured and assembled by Danieli at workshops in Thailand and Italy, adds the firm.
