The demands on the quality of the pickling process are increasing, as is the need to reduce energy and acid consumptions. The SMS group X-Pact® Turbulence Pickling Model for eco production meets these requirements: 

  • Optimal strip surface quality
  • Minimize excessive pickling
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Lower operating costs

The Pickling Model enables flexible pickling of any desired coil sequence. It dynamically controls all relevant technological setpoints so that high product quality is achieved at maximum throughput. The process conditions are controlled concerning each strip segemnt’s requirements. The operators are relieved from time consuming and error prone tasks. The production order module optimizes the order of strips.
This optimization leads to significant savings in energy and resource consumption.
