Sensors for Monitoring
Steel Rolling and Annealing
Sensors that stand up to the harsh, high temperature and extreme environments of steel mills
Steel Mills not only have typical fans, pumps, compressors, gearboxes and cooling towers but also have machines and processes unique to the steel industry. The machine sizes, machine designs, operating speeds, cycle times, batch operations and harsh mill environments often command the use of carefully selected sensors and methods for effective equipment monitoring. Iron making and steel making areas often have an abundance of large belt conveyors, critical ultra-low speed machines with limited rotation, critical large EOT cranes and large volume turbo blowers coupled with >2300 ºF hot blast air, molten liquid iron, red hot slabs, often carbon monoxide risks and of course, rolling mills.
