SECO/WARWICK has completed the installation of two replacement JET cooling chambers at Worthington Industries in Jefferson, Ohio.
To provide Worthington with the most cost-efficient system upgrade, the cooling chambers were supplied so that the existing components such as, rolls, bearings, gaskets, sprockets, chain, etc. were used from the old chambers. The contract included removal of the faulty cooling chambers, installation and start up of the updated system.
According to Jim Williams, Group Leader at Worthington Industries, ʺWe accomplished this project by partnering with the SECO/WARWICK team. It was a coordinated effort to established lead-times for all of the necessary components as well as offsite fabrication of the two (2) jet cooling sections. We then identified a two week window for the demolition of the ‘old’ cooling zones, and installation of the ‘new’ jet cooling zones. The project was completed with minimal issues; as we continued to operate our usual production schedule.”
The goal of this new design was to lower the product temperature while reducing the volume of water to achieve this result. Worthington now runs a continuous 10,000 pounds per hour of production through the system lowering the temperature utilizing a state of the art jet cooling system.
