Operating since 1901, this steel bar manufacturer specializes in transforming steel scrap and iron ore into steel products across many industries. The melt shop in their mill is responsible for melting scrap charge into liquid steel. This process takes place in a furnace that operates with a shared set of electrical equipment that operates at up to 850 volts and 135,000 amps. Due to the high intensity heat, the customer was replacing their existing power cables on each operating furnace every single week! The cable was subject to high temperatures, a large amount of molten steel dropping onto the jacket, and cuts in the outside of the jacket from being dragged around. These were all contributing factors to the constant cable replacements. When this long-time customer called TPC with their problem, the local field specialist discovered a solution that would save them over $15,000 in a 10-month period.
