X-Pact® Turbulence Pickling Model

Challenges

  • Under consideration of all production-relevant parameter, obtain a high production quality and increase yield, while saving acid and steam

Solution

  • Model-based calculation of setup values
  • Production optimization model
  • Calculation of optimum set-points for coil transitions
  • Calculation of the maximum strip speed at any time point

Technical advantages

  • Highest possible speed
  • Lowest temperature
  • Lowest acid consumption
  • Avoid the under-pickling

 

Productivity

  • Highest possible yield
  • Optimized production sequence according line, rolling and welding restrictions
  • Optimized down time management

 

Quality

  • Optimized surface quality
  • Minimized over-pickling

Efficiency

  • Optimized pickling process (less energy and acid consumption)
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Lower operating costs
