LadleHeat

Ladle Thermal Status Tracking LadleHeat tracks all your ladles in circulation and calculates the thermal status at all times. The LadleHeat technological package supplies vital ladle information to your operators  to a precise temperature control on every heat. Why LadleHeat? Do you experience poor temperature control after tapping of your furnace? Do you feel you have uncontrolled variations in the ladle thermal status? Do you need a method to keep track of ladle and ladle fleet thermal status? Key features LadleHeat calculates the thermal status of all ladles in circulation – individually. The calculation keeps track of the ladle position and treatment. A thermal vision system identifies the empty ladles […]

Stability is everything in metals production – improve safety, productivity and product quality by standardization of operations. Standardized production (and LEAN) is probably the most successful principle out there to achieve a high productivity and product quality. The principle may also be applied to liquid metals processing, although some special consideration is required. The symptoms Is your production suffering from all those minor disturbances difficult to explain? Is there an unexplored potential difficult to pin-point? Are production disturbances accepted and handled as “normal problems”? -“We would have reached our goals if only not….” Liquid metal production is complex and sometimes difficult to grasp. The integration of events within and between […]

LadleSlag

LadleSlag

Ladle Deslagging Control LadleSlag technology package monitors ladle deslagging operations and ensures that excessive slag carry over is avoided. Deslag evaluates the slag content and feeds information to the operator when a sufficient deslaging has been achieved. Why LadleSlag? Are you experiencing uncontrolled sulphur increases in the BOF? Are you experiencing uncontrolled reoxidation during ladle treatment influencing on product quality? Do you feel a need to narrow down process variations and operator dependency? Do you need to decrease your metal losses during deslagging? If you associate with any of the above, LadleSlag will assist you in solving your problem. Slag carry-over The problem with slag carry over is well known in steelmaking operations, occurring […]

LadlePurge

LadlePurge

Process Monitoring of Gas-stirring LadlePurge infrared monitoring of your gas stirred ladles (or other vessels) guarantees that the desired stirring intensity is maintained throughout the processing.LadlePurge direct measures the open eye and correlates this to the actual gas flow rate passing through the liquid metal. Why LadlePurge? Are you concerned about how much a poor gas flow control affects your product quality? Are you from time-to-time experience slag overheating in your ladle furnace due to poor stirring? As a steelmaker, do you experience a too high variation in reoxidation and non-metallic inclusion content? If you associate with any of the above, LadlePurge will assist you in solving your problem. Ladle gas purging through porous plugs As metallugists, […]

LadleSafe

LadleSafe

LadleSafe infrared monitoring of your steel ladles minimises the risk of liquid steel breakout and maximises your ladle refractory lifetime. Why LadleSafe? Are you constantly concerned about the potential risks of metal breakouts? Are you feeling that your ladle refractories sometimes could last a few more heats, but you must take safety first? Would you feel more confident in pushing the ladle refractory lifetime if a system scanned every ladle before it was sent to the casting bay? If the answer to any of the above is YES, LadleSafe will assist you to increase performance and safety. Ladle Breakout The risk of a ladle breakout will always be present in […]
