In steel industry the efficiency of oxygen steelmaking in an LD converter (BOF) or in an Electrical Arc Furnace (EAF) is dependent upon many factors, one of which is the design of the lance tip and converging/diverging (C/D) nozzles.
A new generation of oxygen lance tips, called SOUDOTIP® and produced by SOUDOBEAM, have been developed and commercialized to improve steelmaking efficiency by optimizing the blowing impact and its stability. The advanced performance relies on the innovative construction method that leads to a large freedom of conception.
Thanks to this innovative technology, the tips are dedicated to the standards of blowing and the process of each steelmaking shop.
This customized lance tip becomes an integrated part of the process by its reliability and its efficiency. This gives the steelmaker the opportunity to work in the best conditions for the improvement of the yields.
By its new technology, customized SOUDOTIP® leads to multiple savings
• Less iron in slags
• Less oxygen dissolved
• Extended lifetime
• Less skulling
• Low refractory wear
