- The Monobeam is a mechanical device for transporting cold steel through a re-heating furnace for the purpose of bringing the cold steel up to a temperature where it can be hot worked through a rolling mill into strip or shapes. This is presently being done throughout the steel industry in pusher type furnaces and walking beam furnaces. The longitudinlly fired pusher furnace is less thermally efficient than the cross-fired walking beam furnace. The Monobeam furnace permits longitudinal firing, holds its insulation without maintenance during a furnace campaign, and was primarily invented as an energy-saving retrofit for existing pusher type furnaces. The program for testing and presenting an evaluation report for a prototype Monobeam unit at Armco's Middletown, Ohio, steel works is described. Test results are not included. This review concluded that the test program was professionally executed, and that data were properly recorded and analyzed. (LCL)
