The innovative application and implementation of the right technology holds the key. Technological breakthroughs with established records of performance offer the best, most cost-effective and immediate-impact solutions. Examples of such technologies already exist, and are now being brought to customers with the help of Berry Metal Company.

For many years, Berry Metal Company has developed technology with its own core business products, supplying Water-Cooled Oxygen Lances, Injection Lances, Sensor Lances, and Oxy-Fuel Burners specifically designed for basic oxygen furnaces, electric arc furnaces and other refining processes, as well as special purpose, non-ferrous and research-related products.

Not only do we continue to focus and improve our core business, but we are bringing present day engineering to Blast Furnace Products such as UltraLife® Cast Copper Staves, Wear Monitor System, Double Locking Stave Brick, and Hot Blast System and Cast House Equipment. Berry Metal also partners with equipment and technology companies as well as producers around the globe to maximize existing assets, to improve today’s Iron and Steelmaking processes, and to develop tomorrow’s advances.

Some examples include:

  • UltraLife® Copper Staves – Improving Blast Furnace campaign life, maximizing long term profitability.
  • HIsarna® – Alternative iron making technology that eliminates code and sintering, reduces energy use in CO2 output.
  • Iron Reduction Technology – New hot metal production technology that is a coke free, natural gas fired process with drastically reduced CO2 emissions.
