Steele stiff extrusion offers iron & steel mills a proven, scalable agglomeration process to convert mill by-products to feedstock. Our process scales, handling fine, wet materials while using less binder to deliver an engineered end product — for the consistent durability and performance you need in your melting recipe.
Stiff extrusion for agglomeration and pelletizing or cold bonded briquetting
We repurpose fine, wet and sticky materials:
- Blast furnace sludge, dust and fines
- Iron ore pellet fines and concentrates
- Metallized fines (DRI)
- Mill scale
- Baghouse dust
- Ladle slag
Steele stiff extrusion requires minimal moisture and binders for more material recovery.
More than machinery
Steele offers more than machinery. We deliver turnkey product, plant and application engineering to ensure a reliable stream of high-quality feedstock.
Steele process solutions give you complete in-house lab and test plant services, plus turnkey plant engineering. Our experience in repurposing and adding value to bulk raw materials gives us the material preparation skills you need to engineer an optimal agglomerated product.
We can assess the suitability of stiff extrusion for your feedstock requirements, working with up to 5 kg of your raw materials in our lab and up to 20TPH in our test plant. Once we’ve qualified your materials, we can recommend specific machines and a process for a homogenous mix and consistent sizing.
Steele stiff extrusion powers the new TMS International pilot plant in Middletown, OH
Customers and prospects have been asking us for customized full-scale trials for their specific feedstock needs. We’re listening.
Steele has joined forces with TMS International, a global leader in mill services. TMS International opened its pilot plant in for Extruded Product Services (EPS) August 2016 in Middletown, OH to provide feedstock trials for customers that generate substantial by-products. Steele extruders power the EPS process, converting fines, dust and sludge into standardized, consistent feedstock for customer melt recipes. To learn more, visit TMS International or contact Steele.
