Metallurgical Industry

Poor metallurgical conditions and fierce competition

Few industries can compare to the harsh working conditions of steel and other metal plants. Temperature and speed limits. Heavy and continuous impact loads. Grinding dust, corrosive chemicals, and high humidity. These conditions combined can cause equipment degradation, resulting in unplanned shutdowns, and even in good working conditions, making effective maintenance difficult

The current steel mills also face fierce global competition and environmental scrutiny. Profit? The demand for improving productivity, profit margins, and sustainability is unprecedented

Metallurgical industry, applications, cases, solutions
Upstream - steelmaking

Given the increasing demand and competition for steel, steel mills are now seeking ways to optimize their agents and save costs per ton of steel. Considering the harsh environment in which materials are transported in factories, this is a significant challenge

Upstream solutions help factories convert raw materials into molten steel, making the process more stable, cost-effective, of higher quality, and of greater safety and reliability in operation

Upstream - Continuous Casting

Given the increasing demand for steel and competition, the continuous casting agent line is facing enormous pressure to optimize agents and save metric ton costs. Many steel mills are trying to stand out by improving process control, improving product quality, and acting as agents to update products with higher steel grades

During operation, the continuous casting agent line faces a series of conditions that make it difficult to improve the process and products. Frequent and expensive shutdowns for maintenance are inevitable, as water, crystallizer protective slag, and scale can enter the bearing seats

With decades of experience in the industry, solutions help customers reduce maintenance costs, enhance process control, and improve the agency rate of continuous casting agent lines

Upstream - Rolling Mill

While maintaining and improving product quality, hot and cold rolling mills face pressure to increase production. This usually means adjusting the equipment to accommodate heavier loads or reconfiguring the rolling mill frame, which is an expensive suggestion

In both cases, the characteristics of process control make the working conditions and maintenance requirements of bearing configuration more severe. The legislation on operational safety and environmental protection has increased the difficulty of challenges
