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, 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 types of steel that can be annealed in bell annealers range from low-carbon deep-drawing grades (including IF) to high strength microalloy steels (including BH) to high alloy steels.
But bright annealing cold-rolled high-alloy ferritic or martensitic Cr steels is only possible with HICON/H2® bell annealer furnace technology.
- cold-rolled unalloyed grades such as DC01 (St12, CQ) to DC05 (St15, EDDQ), IF steels, etc.
- cold-rolled low-alloyed carbon steels like C60 to C100
- high-alloyed cold-rolled and hot-rolled ferritic and martensitic grades such as AISI 430, 410, 420, ...)
- low-alloyed silicon steel strip (max. 3 % Si)
- tin plate T1-T4 (TS 230 - TS 415)
coil diameter 1400 - 2700 mm
stacking height up to 7000 mm (including convector plates)
