NEW VESSEL MANAGER MONITORS LADLE REFRACTORY CONDITION FOR GREATER SAFETY AND COST CONTROL IN MOLTEN METAL OPERATIONS

NEW VESSEL MANAGER MONITORS LADLE REFRACTORY CONDITION FOR GREATER SAFETY AND COST CONTROL IN MOLTEN METAL OPERATIONS
05/07/2012

Designed for steel mills, copper smelters and other molten metal processes, the system includes multiple Thermal Imaging Cameras positioned to view the entire exterior surface of a molten metal ladle. Temperature information is collected each time the ladle passes a measurement station, allowing assessment of the extent and distribution of wear to the lining. The system’s software creates actionable records for each ladle.

Vessel Manager data helps prevent two serious problems: • Accurate statistical measurement of lining wear allows managers to set realistic relining schedules, reducing both the cost of too-frequent maintenance and the risk of break-outs. • Constant measurement of temperature changes helps identify ladles that are threatening to fail earlier than predicted, sounding an alarm and lessening risk of plant damage and worker injury.

By identifying the exact location of unexpected hot spots in a particular ladle, the system allows some partial re-linings to extend the life of the ladle.
