ESD 100S

Elektromagnetic Slag Detection ESD100S

Minimising the slag-carry-over from the ladle into the tundish represents a key problem of steel manufacture. The introduction of the electromagnetic slag detection system in the eighties led along with the increase of the yield to a considerable reduction of the average slag also conveyed into tundish.

Only a few years after the market launch this technology became the norm with the result that today more than 300 continous casting plants and more than 3000 ladles are equipped with the electromagnetic AMEPA slag detector.

With the aid of further developed electromagnetic slag detection method it is now possible to detect even smaller quantities of slag often found in the discharged flow of steel before the main surplus slag overflow actually begins. The occurrence of this phenomenon indicates the formation of a vortex. Because small slag droplets can also be detected early on, it enables the user to control the casting flow much better than previously. Steel quality with a high degree of purity, such as for example, tinplate or tyre cord wire, can virtually be cast without slag entering the casting. Such a further developed electromagnetic AMEPA slag detector enables optimisation in the factors of purity level and yield for different steel qualities.

OFM

Thin sheets are coated electrostatically with oil or wax in a final production step just before coiling. The thickness of the oil film is specified by the purchaser. Contrary to the past, modern multi-range oils no longer serve solely as corrosion protection, but also as a lubricant in the forming process. The process stage of renewed oil lubrication before forming can therefore be dispensed with. In order to achieve good forming results it is particularly important to apply a homogeneous layer of oil without dry stripes and in the required thickness.

Previously, it was not possible to ensure that the oil had been correctly applied during the production process. The oil layer could only be measured offline by means of complicated laboratory measurements or hand-held devices.

AMEPA GmbH has now launched for the first time the OFM 100, a measuring system which measures, visualises, reports and documents the oil and wax layer online using a non-contacting method. Oil layer defects are immediately detected and reported. Corrections can be initiated at once. The quality of the oiling of each coil is documented in its entirety.

The system can be employed in the exit or entry inspection. It is also possible to check that oil has been removed, for example before painting.

RSD

Residual Steel Detector

To achieve an optimum steel discharge the distributor of an extrusion plant must be emptied as far as possible for sequences, distributor and changes in quality – nevertheless for safety reasons it is forbidden for any slag to enter the ingot. As safety comes before discharge, the imprecision of the distributor scale signals means that in practice there is a need to work with a higher safety reserve of residual steel.

The AMEPA Residual Steel Detector RSD, currently fitted to 83 distributors, solves this problem. Measuring the residual steel height during emptying allows the distributor to be closed precisely before a critical filling point, i.e. before slag becomes intermixed. This achieves an optimum discharge.

The RSD becomes particularly important during a change in quality in the distributor. As the distributor has been emptied as far as possible before renewed filling with another steel quality, the resulting mixed zones in the strand are minimal. Additionally, reliable data for calculating the poorer mixed zones is available.

SRM – Online Surface Roughness Measurement

Product description

Surface roughness of cold rolled sheets is an important parameter for the finishing process. Up to now, online roughness measurement was only possible with systems measuring in rolling direction. AMEPA developed a new optical system enabling a measurement under 45° or 90° - as stipulated by SEP 1940 and DIN EN ISO 4287/4288 - for all kinds of textures.

The targets of the SRM System are:

- Visualization and documentation of the roughness over the coil length

- Timely detection of roughness out-of tolerance levels caused by e.g.:
- wear of rolls
- improper roll forces

- Providing online data to determine the optimal point to change the rolls

- Providing Ra as input for the roll force controllerReduction of the number of offline measurements

TSD

Thermographic slag detection

Slag overflow from BOF or EAF into the ladle during tapping has an important role to play in today's steel manufacturing process. In the summer of 1999 AMEPA launched a thermographic slag detection system onto the market which has now been installed in over 70 systems worldwide. The thermographic slag detection system has developed more and more into standard.

This physical measuring principle is universally applicable as an electromagnetic slag detection system. Combined with a modular, flexible evaluation process, the system can be easily updated at any time to optimise the tapping process. Some of the possible new applications: observation of deslagging, dart hitting detection etc.

Furthermore the system is used to control and optimise the deslagging of the iron ladle, deslagging during stainless steel production and to monitor temperature-critical vessels.
