Water-hammer analysis

for sustainable steel production


From 2027, a new electric arc furnace in at the voestalpine steelworks in Leoben-Donawitz will significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from steel production. To guarantee a safe operation in the future also the cooling water supply has to be adapted. In this context, we were selected to carry out the water-hammer analysis for the upgrade of the complex hydraulic layout of the cooling water system. In the course of the ongoing study the safety concept in the event of control errors or other incidents such as power failures or operation with an emergency power supply is to be analysed.
