The conditions in blast furnaces are very demanding and therefore our specialist knowledge and experience are invaluable. Luvata has been manufacturing copper staves for blast furnaces since 1997. We work closely with the world’s leading engineering companies and we are constantly seeking out new solutions to help them improve efficiency, increase productivity and optimize material usage.

Staves are essential for protecting the steel shells of blast furnaces, and copper, with its superb conductivity, is an ideal material from them. At Luvata we have created a unique manufacturing process for copper staves. We use a continuous casting process to produce the cooling channels in the casted copper slabs. There are two key benefits to this innovative process. Firstly, the stave design is thinner, reducing weight and therefore material costs. Secondly, the oval shape of the cooling channels gives them greater surface area, making them more efficient and creating more furnace volume.

We also offer plate coolers, an important part of our product offering related to blast furnaces.


Only the best materials

We use Cu-HCP copper for copper staves.

Luvata’s manufacturing process is fully integrated, from the delivery of the pure cathodes to the production of the final product, we are confident that our quality is second-to-none.
