Furnaces allow heat to be generated and kept within a certain range in order to melt the metal. The process involves more than simply melting metal to extract it from ore.
Temperature control in the furnace is important to reduce fuel costs and optimize the time during this stage.
Temperature measurements also ensure temperature uniformity and consistent quality of the manufactured, reducing waste.
Hot rolling mill
Temperature measurement and control in hot rolling mill maintains product quality and protects processing equipment.
Throughout this process, VisionTIR’s solutions are used to ensure the metal is at the correct temperature and to reduce the cost of fuel for this stage.
Iron to steel manufacturing process
Steelmaking is the process for producing steel, heating iron ore and scrap steel in a furnace with oxygen. Temperature measurement during this process is essential for energy savings and quality control.
VisionTIR offers different solutions for temperature measurement throughout this process.
Controlling the reheat furnace is important to reduce the cost of fuel and time needed for this stage.
Temperature measurements also ensure temperature uniformity and consistent product quality, reducing wastage.
