Maximum efficiency when recycling scrap material

Process optimization of Electric Arc Furnaces to make your plant cost efficient

The electric arc furnace (EAF) is the heart of the electric steelmaking, where electrical energy is used to melt the main feed materials, solid scrap and/or direct reduced iron (DRI). Steel is the most recycled material on the planet. The metallurgical properties of steel allow it to be recycled continually with no degradation in performance. The EAF can use either a direct current or a three-phase alternating current. A reliable supply of power is essential for electric arc furnace operations.

Industry packaged solutions and services

For optimizing process reliability, flow meters, pressure and temperature sensors play an important part. They perform their tasks dependably in the tough, hot environment and assist with the search for leaks and also the control and analysis of compressed air, natural gas, oxygen and water. Robust and reliable field instruments help to improve efficiency with the chemical energy input into the furnace.

The value for you

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

  • Safe monitoring of critical cooling water circuits in panels and walls

  • Local and competent sales and service support
