Iron Dynamics Reclaim System

A subsidiary of Steel Dynamics, Iron Dynamics was founded in 1998 and serves as a supplier of liquid pig iron and direct-reduced iron for its parent company. This iron is then used in the production of steel in the Flat Roll Division electric-arc furnaces as a substitute for purchased imported pig iron. It is Iron Dynamic’s mission to develop reliable, lower-cost sources of high quality iron units.

Located in Butler, Indiana, Iron Dynamics commissioned the jdi group to provide mechanical layouts, elevations, and details for the installation of a new material reclamation system at their facility. In addition, jdi designed the platform for the new process equipment that was being added for the reclaim project. Due to some large loads, the structural design took on added importance during the project.

jdi provided foundation design, mechanical layouts, structural design and layout drawings, and construction documents. In addition, we reviewed shop drawings both for the equipment and the structural steel. Recently completed, the project spanned about ten weeks in duration.
