Steel Plant Maintenance
The use of condition monitoring in steel plants can turn more of the critical unknowns into knowns.
The production of steel and other sheet and rolled metals (e.g. iron) in plants / mills relies upon heavy plant equipment operating under extreme conditions. This means that the lubricants used in these circumstances require constant monitoring and maintenance. Such monitoring techniques have moved from being viewed as an extravangance, to their new position as relevant and necessary tools.
Vital parameters to be monitored in steel plants and steel mills include:
- Quality control of roll plate surfaces, providing a quantitative analysis of debris on adhesive sample tape surfaces
- Maintenance and monitoring of ferrous debris in quench lines for rolling mills
- The continuous monitoring of metal particle levels and sizes in stainless steel quench oil can improve production quality and reduce waste, resulting in higher profits
