The operational stability of iron production and steelmaking processes are under constant threat due to variation in the quality of raw materials as well as other operating conditions. Maintaining consistency and efficient operations while addressing energy savings and emission reduction is key to ensuring productivity.
Challenges by Application
Sinter and Coke
With several operations scattered over large distances, machines coordination is difficult to create and maintain, especially in the event of subsystem failure. A common control platform for all subsystems provides higher yield and quality for sinter plants and proper scheduling and equipment coordination for coke plants.
Blast Furnace – Basic Oxygen Steelmaking
To ensure quality, accuracy and safety, optimized operations are needed to have reliable furnace cooling, automation of cycle times and hot blast delivery, and decreased fuel consumption. Reduce risks and bring process visibility to the enterprise level with a highly available, open and modern distributed control system.
Electric Arc Furnace (EAF)
Rising standards for EAFs require advanced analytics capabilities and a unified control system to gain precise control, power management and energy optimization. Reach this goal by delivering integrated systems and model predictive control technologies.
Drive Efficiency and Reduce Costs
Integrate a Modern Distributed Control System
Address the demanding requirements of iron production and steelmaking processes that system users face, such as the difficulty of balancing high availability systems, connectivity with smart process instruments and seamless interface to Level 3 applications.
A modern DCS can accelerate your digital transformation journey by incorporate the latest developments in process control.
Conquer Energy Challenges and Improve Profitability
Improving energy efficiency in electric arc furnaces can be a challenge. Strategic energy management allows you to gain control of your energy use and reduce consumption with no impact to production or product quality.
