We are proud to announce the launch of our updated web site, epsprocess.com. This complete, highly secure redesign was done with the goal of giving you better tools and information for understanding and evaluating EPS technology.
TYASA has ordered a two-cell EPS Coil Line to complete what is arguably the most advanced, environmentally-friendly minimill facility in the world. The EPS line, which will employ the latest . . .
TMW will soon begin installing an advanced 10mm (0.375”) tension leveled EPS Coil Line at our toll processing center in Red Bud, Illinois. The line will be capable of pickling CQ, Higher Strength . . .
Today, we describe innovations that extend the service life of EPS Cell components and reduce the frequency (and cost) of maintenance . . .
EPS Cell Configuration version 5.2 has been developed to serve the growing need for large, clean plate. It utilizes EPS Slurry Blast technology, in a configuration different from other EPS Cell designs . . .
For processors who consistently specialize in more narrow strip products, the Version 2 cell configuration may be too much. That’s why we have developed EPS Cell Version 3 for narrow strip . . .
In the nearly 6 months since Lee Steel Corporation started processing coils on its 2-Cell EPS Coil line, this leading flat-rolled steel service center has gained substantial experience . . .
Continued development and testing of EPS technology has produced new features that (1) increase production speeds, (2) yield an even cleaner surface, and (3) reduce scheduled maintenance . . .

With quite a few EPS lines now operating around the world, a substantial amount of EPS product is produced every day. Key operating parameters are being logged for each EPS Cell, then reviewed and analyzed by . . .
As a general rule, Ra – typically referred to as ‘average roughness’ – of the surface of EPS-processed strip steel will be higher than that of the acid pickled steel it replaces. Upon hearing this, some may incorrectly . . .
Major hot dip galvanizers in both the USA and Europe performed trials with EPS-processed coils last year and recently provided us with their results. The USA galvanizer reported ‘excellent results’ but wishes . . .
The US automotive OEMs General Motors and Chrysler have approved the use EPS-processed steel as a replacement of acid pickled for end use product application . . .
