Improve equipment life time

Blast furnace renovation using instruments from one-stop supplier

The blast furnace is the heart of a steel plant and essential in producing pig iron. It is generally necessary to renew an outworn blast furnace after two decades of continuous operation. This revamp project needs a lot of work beforehand. Renovating a blast furnace involves more than simply running off red-hot pig iron and slag before it cools down. It also includes dismantling huge constructions and building new ones.

Revamp projects: Fit for 20 more years

The two revamping projects are targeted to digitize the original measurement procedures and modernize them to improve equipment life. The projects will also allow for reconstruction under tight schedules (95 days) without delay. Controlling this process digitally exposes measuring instruments to extremely harsh conditions and expecting the devices to function for long periods of time.

The value for you

  • Complete project management including assembling, cabling and engineering of the electrical system

  • One supplier for all measurement points such as temperature, pressure, flow and level

  • Local and competent sales and service support
