Disassembly and treatment on site of a blast furnace gas line in Lorraine
September 2011: For the demolition and shearing of several kilometers of an old blast furnace gas line, our rental shear was used by a Belgian demolition company in Lorraine/France. 6 m pieces of the blast furnace line with a diameter of 1.5 m were split in two halves with a demolition shears on site and cut in the container shear into small pieces that could be used directly in the steel mill. So more than 3,000 tons of scrap were sent for recycling in a way that minimized logistical costs. This is another example of the flexible use of our container shear.
