X-Pact® AEReg

Advanced electrode regulator

Challenges

  • Consistently maximize the electrical energy transfer to the EAF/LF under all possible process conditions

Solution

  • Extremely fast cycle time, with state-of-the art control algorithms and built-in tools for diagnostics and fine-tuning

Technical advantages

  • Best-in-class performances, with also slag foaming control in EAF
  • Easy and low-cost maintenance thanks to off-the-shelf components

Productivity

  • Lower power-on time (2.6 %)
  • Less electrode breakages

Efficiency

  • Less electrical energy (4.0 %)
  • Lower electrode consumption
  • Less carbon for EAF slag foaming practice
