Steel Making

Molten steel is produced in ultra high-power Electrical Arc Furnaces (EAF). The steel is cast into billets in multi-strand continuous casting machines. The standard-produced billets are 12 meters long with a cross-section of 130mmx130mm. The caster can also produce billets with cutting length up to 13.6 meters and a cross-section from 130x130mm to 150x150mm.

After the launch of the 2nd Steel Melting Plant in 2012, Solb Misr will be able to produce square billets from 130x130mm to 200x200mm, as well as round billets, beam blanks and baby slabs. The use of vacuum degassing and submerged casting technology enables the plant to produce high quality steel.
