HICON/H2 bell annealer facilities – the technology that revolutionized the heat treatment of steel strip coils.
Today, HICON/H2 is internationally known as a synonym for excellence in quality, productivity and lowest production costs. But it is undoubtedly the exceptional quality of steel coils annealed in 100 % hydrogen which has made HICON/H2 technology so successful.
Through intensive collaboration with partners in the industry, EBNER is able to tailor each HICON/H2 bell annealer to each customer’s needs. New solutions, new products and the optimization of existing processes are all supported.
Thanks to continual technological advances by EBNER‘s R&D department, HICON/H2 bell annealers achieve shortest possible annealing and cooling times while simultaneously keeping operating costs low. Customers in more than 45 countries worldwide are profiting from this technology and its value-for-money as they boost efficiency.
The facility can be implemented to comply with the standards required by the automotive industry, in accordance with CQI-9 (AIAG).
Bell annealers are used to heat treat non-grain-oriented electrical strip, both hot-rolled and cold-rolled, at temperatures between 650 and 900 °C. These processes can be grouped as follows:
