Continuous furnaces are also used for reheating steel slabs and bars prior to rolling into intermediate or finished products. 19. It consists of three zones, a preheating zone, a heating zone and a soak zone. The slabs lie horizontally and are heated by burners above and below. The slabs are transported through the furnace by water-cooled ‘walking beams’, or by a ‘pusher’ installed at the cold end that pushes the slabs on water-cooled skids. The slab enters the preheating zone, where it is heated to approximately 500°C.

Furnace users have generally purchased on the basis of capital cost; understandably so, given that the other objectives are much more difficult to assess at the tendering stage. This approach has led to relatively little engineering effort being expended on improving existing designs because engineering time is expensive and the costs are difficult to recoup for the furnace builder. However, an era of higher fuel and energy costs will put new demands on designers and operators of furnaces, forcing a new approach for many applications.
