Company Information

Graz - May 7, 2021. International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order
from Prosperity Tieh, Taiwan, to supply a new high-capacity pickling and
galvanizing line for hot-rolled carbon steel strip. Start-up of the line is
planned for mid-2023.

The ANDRITZ scope of supplies and services includes the terminal equipment, a
laser welder and a side trimmer at the inlet, a scale breaker, the pickling
section, skin-pass mill #1, a direct-fired furnace (DFF) for heat-to-coat
operation, the galvanizing section, skin-pass mill # 2 with tension leveler, the
chemical coaters with drying section, and the electrical and automation
equipment for the complete line.

The delivery will include the following sustainable ANDRITZ solutions:

* A new acid regeneration plant (ARP) to recycle the waste acid from the
  pickling line - including the proven ANDRITZ ECOmode process which reduces CO2
  emissions from the ARP by 25%.

* A heat recovery system for the furnace that will use hot exhaust gases from
  the furnace to heat the air needed for the drying process in the coating

* After heat recovery, the main off-gas streams from the DFF and ARP are
  combined for exhaust gas treatment using a DeNOx system to minimize the NOx
  levels in the exhaust gas. The dryer exhaust gas system in the post-treatment
  section is equipped with VOC treatment (volatile organic compound emissions).

With ANDRITZ's state-of-the-art, sustainable technologies, this line will
produce hot-dip galvanized (GI) or ZM-coated /(zinc-aluminum-magnesium) flat
steel. ANDRITZ will also provide consultancy on the production of ZM-coated

This order confirms the long-lasting, good relationship between ANDRITZ and
Prosperity Tieh. In 2004, ANDRITZ delivered and successfully commissioned a
push-pickling line with ARP and in 2018, a 4-high cold-rolling mill to
Prosperity Tieh. Additionally, ANDRITZ has performed various upgrades and
modernizations on existing lines.

Established in Taiwan in 1985, Prosperity Tieh Enterprise Co. Ltd (PTEC) evolved
from a traditional stripping, shearing, pipe and washer pressing mill to a
manufacturer of professional hot-dip galvanized and pre-painted steel.
