X-Pact® Pickling Model for Carbon Steel

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
  • Calculation of optimized coil sequence
  • 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

Quality

  • Optimal strip surface quality
  • Minimize the over-pickling

Efficiency

  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Lower operating costs
