X-Pact® Cooling Section Control

Challenges

  • Production of a wide range of hot rolled products

Solution

  • Phase transformation model
  • Austenite decomposition model
  • Enthalpy model
  • Heat transition model

Technical advantages

  • Very high accuracy for repeatable material properties
  • Cooling strategies for a wide range of hot rolled products
  • Can be used with many different mechanical designs
  • Variable coiling temperature to achieve desired material properties along strip length

Quality

  • Exact control of coiling temperature
  • By using super reinforced cooling alloy elements saving up to 2 – 3 €/t possible
  • By using compact cooling alloy elements saving up to 6 – 7 €/t possible
