X-Pact® FEOS - Furnace Energy Optimization System

Integrated approach to EAF process control

Challenges

  • A control system for the arc furnace which...
  • ...measures all substantial processes
  • ...measures the complete status and optimizes the energy input as a whole

Solution

  • Simultaneous control of foaming slag, power, burner and HBI/DRI feeding

Technical advantages

  • Lower energy consumption due to optimized and reproducible furnace operating practices
  • Increase in production due to shorter tap-to-tap times
  • Easy integration into existing automation systems

Efficiency

  • Repeatable and energy efficient process
  • Saves energy and money
