Building on our core strategy "The future is manless" around the furnace, BSE introduces the next keystone for a safe and efficient steelmaking operation - the SandMan® for EBT.

The ergonomic and safety concerns of a meltshop environment are taken into account in this recently designed safety tool. Additionally, it considers the logistical difficulty of precisely and consistently sand filling after each tapping.

The SandMan® for EBT also gives furnace operators unique process monitoring capabilities, based on its easy-to-maintain and heat-resistant camera system
