AK Steel Completes Work on Kentucky Hearth Line, Back to Full Production

by on

AK Steel said that the reline of the blast furnace hearth at its Ashland, Kentucky Works was successful and the blast furnace has returned to full production following an approximate 4-week, planned outage for maintenance work. The outage had been planned to occur in 2015 but was advanced to fully address operational issues that began earlier this year.

The company said that the Ashland blast furnace is now operating at its full capacity, which is significantly above pre-outage levels. In addition to the hearth reline, other routine maintenance work was also completed on the blast furnace.
