Proper Reheating TemperatureCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Rolling Mills|
|Energy Savings Potential||
A reduction of the heating temperature 100°C in the reheating furnace decreases unit fuel consumption by 9% to 10%. However under certain conditions total energy consumption may not decrease with a decrease in heating temperature.

Proper Reheating Temperature Publications
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) energy guide, Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for the U.S. Iron and Steel Industry, discusses energy efficiency practices and technologies that can be implemented in iron and steel manufacturing plants. This guide provides current real world examples of iron and steel plants saving energy and reducing cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
