Submerged arc furnaces offer several advantages such as customization based on product requirements and input materials, and diversified features. They are used for smelting pre-reduced ores, ore concentrate, calcine, and waste materials such as slags, deposits, refractory breakout waste, skulls, and flue dust. SAFs are known for their versatility, reliability, and efficiency, and are used across various applications, including metal and steel sectors.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic ceased the growth of the submerged arc furnace market. The demand for SAFs declined significantly during the first year of the pandemic due to disruptions across end-user sectors. A notable drop in steel output as a result of supply chain issues and raw material & labor shortages reduced the demand for ferroalloys, influencing the adoption of SAFs. A temporary shutdown of industrial units also limited the need for SAFs.
