STELMOR Process Line
Stelmor is a controlled cooling process for steel wires and rods. Originally developed by Canadian steel company Steelco and Morgan Construction Company of USA, it was a very substantial improvement in rod quality together with a reduction in cooling time and scale loss became possible. This was accomplished by first rapidly water-cooling the rod, then form it into rings and deposited in off-set, overlapping relation on an open conveyor, and further rapidly cooled thereon by blowing air through the rings. The Stelmor process was extremely successful, it went into immediate and widespread use.
