And the demand for quality steels in future-oriented markets is growing.
We coordinate each component of your metallurgical plant individually with you and adapt it accordingly. Our total commitment to technology and services contributes to your competitiveness.
Our Condition Monitoring System (CMS) is also available for vacuum pumps. This allows you to keep an overview at all times: The system monitors the main functions so that you can detect faults and take appropriate action.
Operating and maintenance personnel gain an easier overview
- The display of pressures and temperatures, for example, makes it easier to understand the relationships between thermodynamic processes
- This also applies to the interaction of individual factors
Better preventive maintenance
- Predictive failure warnings give you the opportunity to take counter measures as soon as values deviate too much from the norm
- You take the right counter measures based on correctly identified causes
- You recognize potentials for saving operating media
It's important to inhibit steel splashing inside the vacuum vessel to avoid skull buildup. RH-SC® does this during rapid decarburization treatment using advanced vacuum pressure and precise lift gas flow control.
Fewer splashes reduce skull formation inside the vacuum vessel. As a result, less effort is necessary for skull cutting with hydrocarbon fuels or oxygen applied through burner lances. This not only directly saves resources but also reduces skull handling, recycling, and disposal.
Skull cutting tends to damage the vessel lining, so reducing it increases the refractory lifetime. It also decreases the volume of worn-out refractories that have to be dumped and recycled. Another advantage of less splashing is that not as much dust is generated to contaminate the condenser cooling water. That eases the load on the water treatment plant.
However, not only a service partner for your plants and machines, SMS group is also there for your staff. Furthermore, You can enroll on standardized and individual training programs designed for you by our SMS TECademy. That ensures you strengthen your competence as a plant owner.
Whether you require one-off equipment checks, continuous condition monitoring, remote service, or regular plant inspections: our service experts will take care of it all. You can even outsource your complete maintenance operations to us. This ensures excellent plant availability plus best production results.
When the spare parts you need are no longer available or the new generation is not 100% compatible, you risk plant standstills. That's why SMS group constantly monitors the availability of all parts and, where necessary, offers modern alternatives - even for parts from third-party suppliers. This ensures competitiveness and full productivity over the entire life cycle of your plant.
Even plants "built to last" need to be critically examined from time to time, because markets and production processes are continuously evolving. Together with you, our service experts will find the best revamp options for your requirements. Once again bang up to date, your plants will then be ready to bolster your strong position on the market.
