SmartFURNACE optimization system

SmartFURNACE is a modular, open, intuitive, EAF personnel oriented flexible and friendly system designed to optimize the Electric Arc Furnace.

• SmartARC module. Electric power module to supervise electrode regulator. It helps the EAF operator to improve electric energy consumption, reduce electrode consumption, protect furnace walls, etc.
• DRI/Scrap feed module. It helps to optimally run the EAF balancing energy and material input.
• Oxygen-Carbon module. It helps to reach the end of the heat with the right carbon and oxygen to minimize carbon adjustment time.
• Off-Gas module. It is an improved version of Oxygen-Carbon module using Zolo laser off-gas measurement. It helps to improve tap-to-tap time, energy consumption, electrode consumption, etc.
• Slag module. It helps to reach MgO saturation in slag. Benefits: slag foaming, arc stability, refractory protection, less FeO losses.


EAF Safety Alarms

Taking advantage of Zolo Lasser off-gas measurement system this tool is able to detect and alarm big water leakage in the EAF to prevent explosions.
