SLAG-DETECT – Applicable for BOF Tapping Operation as well as EAF and Deslagging
Apart from its main application for BOF operation, using SLAG-DETECT can be very useful and advisable under other technological conditions of steel production. Thus, in many cases, it is possible to control the tapping at EAF systems (depending on their construction) with the help of infrared camera technology.In the same way, SLAG-DETECT has proved successful at numerous installations on tasks to be carried out in a reversed manner, the detection of steel during deslagging, and contributes to optimum material utilisation and high operational safety by avoiding the overstraining of the ladle's material. Being equipped with high-performance infrared camera technology adapted to harsh operating conditions in industry, SLAG-DETECT represents a reliable instrument ensuring product quality while making full use of the converter's capacity in the best possible way. Its flexible system configuration allows the integration into installations with different degrees of automation - starting from manual operation displaying the ongoing process in real time up to a fully automatic control of the converter's tilt angle during tapping.
