Our goal is your continuity

Furnace Tending vehicle

Smart, efficient vehicles with an all-electric driveline. Intelligent, precise controls give your operators maximum control. These robust vehicles offer safe cleaning without losing aluminium or adversely affecting the furnace lining. The operator enjoys a surprisingly high level of comfort and safety.

– 100% clean electrical power.
– Smart, electric-controlled chain with hydraulic telescopic beam.
– Steady and stable mobile platform.
– Maximum de-dross and high-speed furnace cleaning.

TENDING MACHINES TO IMPROVE CAST HOUSE EFFICIENCY AND SAFETY TENDING VEHICLES WITH OPERATOR ASSISTING TECHNOLOGY

Tending a melting and holding furnace (dedrossing, furnace cleaning, metal mixing, charging alloys, etc.) requires precision and movement control. Too often this is carried out manually or by a long beam attached to a forklift. This results in damage to furnace lining, reduced lifetime of refractory, steel pollution in the final product, metal spillage, heat loss and unsafe situations in front of the furnace. Hencon offers a safe and state-of-the-art furnace tending vehicle developed with operator assisting technology. Knowing that operators are important for the eff iciency and success of the productionprocess, their feedback has been taken into account in the design of the cabin and vehicle.

AVAILABLE WITHOUT BREAKDOWNS FOR THE NEXT 15 YEARS

For years Hencon has offered maintenance service on site at several large smelters around the world. The lessons learned during these years have been used in the designs of all Hencon solutions. Hencon provides an all-inclusive maintenance and support plan. This support plan offers uptime guarantees of up to 99% for the next 15 years.

FLOATING MODE AND ALLOYING MODE

All of Hencon’s tending vehicles can be equipped with operator assisting technology that will allow perfectly level movement on an optimal skimming speed resulting in less metal loss. The cleaning blades can follow the internal profile of the furnace in order to avoid damage of the lining. The intelligent machine can be switched to alloying mode in order to use the best speed, depth and pattern during the alloying process.
