we facilitate the transport of abrasive slurries throughout the production process for the top steel producers

We handle the byproducts of the steel production process, including scale, slag, and other waste materials.

Fluctuations in flow or pressure can lead to production delays, product quality issues, and safety hazards. Our pumping solutions have features such as adjustable impeller clearances and variable speed drives that can help to maintain consistent flow rates and pressure levels, improving overall process efficiency and productivity.

Mill Scale Pits

Our pumps are used to transfer and remove the mill scale slurry formed during the hot rolling process and collected intp pits. Our solutions are built to handle the high-density abrasive material and transfer it to a designated location for disposal or recycling.

Coke Ovens

Our pumping solutions remove the wastewater and the coal tar slurry produced in the coke-making process. The highly abrasive and corrosive nature of the slurry requires the use of specially designed pumps that can handle challenging conditions and ensure the efficient transfer of the slurry to a designated location for further processing or disposal.

Wet Scrubbers

Wet scrubbers are used to remove pollutants from the exhaust gases generated during the steel production process. Our slurry pumps are transferring the scrubbing slurry, which contains the removed pollutants, to a designated location for further processing or disposal.

Foil Production Sumps

In the foil production process, we pump the coolant and lubricant slurry to the foil production sumps. The slurry, which consists of water and abrasive particles, helps to cool and lubricate the foil as it passes through the rolling mill.

Costly, manual, removal every 16 hours by clam shelling heavy mill scale was eliminated thanks to our agitation technology

A steel producing partner of ours in the northeast U.S. was having major operational problems in their mill scale pits because the pumps that they had installed were nothing more than glorified water pumps pretending to be slurry pumps. Because they didn’t have the right pumps installed, every two hours they were having to hoist these glorified water pumps out of the mill scale that was essentially burying them and choking off their suction. And then every 16 hours, they’d shut down the complete operation, bring in the clamshell to clean out the sump completely. They were losing unconscionable time and putting their safety at risk every time they had to shut down their operation and touch these pieces of equipment.

We were asked to put our money where our mouth is, so we brought in a small horsepower submersible pump with our special agitation technology. We put that into the mill scale pit and in three to four hours had cleaned out the complete sump.

The best part of the story for us was the maintenance super was so impressed, at the end of the project he asked if we were hiring because he thought he could make a ton of money selling our solutions to all the mills around the area.

WHY THE TOP STEEL PRODUCERS ARE TRUSTING OUR PUMPING SOLUTIONS

OUR SUPPORT IS AS EFFICIENT AS OUR PUMPS

The combination of high-quality slurry pumps and exceptional support services has made Hevvy/Toyo a trusted choice for top steel producers, for whom this level of support is critical in ensuring that their pumps operate at optimal levels and that any issues are quickly resolved, minimizing downtime and ensuring that production is not interrupted.

WE OFFER THE LOWEST TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

Our pumps are specifically designed to handle the tough and abrasive materials that are generated in steel production, with a focus on durability, efficiency, and long-lasting performance. As a result, by using our pumping solutions, top steel producers avoid costly downtime that can result from pump failures or the need for frequent maintenance or repairs.

WE HELP THEM SAVE UP TO $100K/YEAR

Our slurry pumps are engineered to be highly efficient and durable, which has a direct impact on the bottom line for steel producers: our pumping solutions provide significant cost savings and operational benefits when factoring in the reduced need for costly rebuilds, minimized downtime, and elimination of the need for vacuum truck cleaning of mill scale sumps.

We have several repair and service facilities and a network of authorized repair locations across Canada, the USA, and Latin America

Malfunctioning pumps can cause significant downtime and lost productivity, which is why we strive to provide fast and reliable repair services to get your equipment back up and running as soon as possible. We use our large test tank to troubleshoot and test every pump we repair before it leaves our facility, ensuring that it operates at peak performance.

Our team is standing by to have your pump repaired as quickly as possible. That’s why we solely focus on repairing pumps so we can have them back up and running in the smallest time possible.

TOP STEEL MILLS DON’T STOP PRODUCTION TO CLEAN MILL SCALE SUMP

75% OF MILL SCALE SUMPS SHOULD NOT REQUIRE VACUUM TRUCK CLEANING

This is because a pump that is too small or inadequate for the application will not be able to effectively remove the mill scale buildup, resulting in a clogged sump that requires manual cleaning. Top steel producers trust our pumps because they know they will get a pump that is properly sized and engineered to handle the tough and abrasive materials that are generated in steel production.

THE RIGHT PUMP DOESN’T BREAK EVERY FEW MONTHS

A pump that is inadequate for the application or not properly designed can break down frequently, resulting in costly downtime and lost production. Top steel producers rely on Hevvy/Toyo Pumps becaus they are engineered to withstand the tough and abrasive conditions of steel production, providing long-lasting performance and minimizing the need for maintenance or repairs.

YOUR PRODUCTION IS ONLY AS EFFICIENT AS YOUR WORST PUMP

In a steel mill, the efficiency of the entire production process is only as good as the worst-performing pump. This means that even if a mill has several high-performing pumps, one poorly performing pump can significantly impact the overall efficiency and productivity of the plant. This is why top steel producers take great care in selecting pumps that provide maximum efficiency and reliability for their specific application.
