Posted by Tubular Marketing on Sep 20, 2019 10:30:00 AM

Construction crews are working on several areas throughout the EAF construction site, including the scrap yard, gas cleaning plant, and of course, the melt shop building.  Read below to learn more about what's been happening in Fairfield, Alabama.

In the photo below, you can see the installation of duct work for electrical wiring is in process. In the top left corner of the photo is the truck scale, which measures the net weight of steel scrap and other materials that are coming into our facility.

Last time we visited the gas cleaning plant, formwork was still up around most of the building.  With the concrete now set and the temporary molds removed, we can get a better visual of the shaker housing as well as the hopper compartments directly below.
