Ladle Slag Detection System
FOR PREVENTING ONSET OF SLAG FROM LADLE TO TUNDISH

KT2000 Ladle Slag Detection System

The KT2000 LadleSLAG utilizes acoustic vibration technology to indicate the onset of slag carryover from the ladle to the tundish. This vibration-based system provides steelmakers with a scientific method for selecting the appropriate balance between acceptable slag carryover and steel cleanliness for each grade of steel. Adjust system sensitivity for an alarm before slag carryover begins, or maximize yield by allowing a small amount of carryover.

 
ADVANTAGES
  • Enhance steel cleanliness
  • Consistently optimize yield vs. slag carryover
  • Expand tundish sequence length
  • Eliminate premature closing of ladles
  • Reduce nozzle clogging
LOW MAINTENANCE EFFORT
  • No modification to ladles or slide gates required
  • Few installation requirements
  • No consumable sensors involved
LOW MAINTENANCE COST
  • Only one sensor utilized per manipulator arm
  • Sensor and main control unit located away from hazardous ladle pouring area
HIGH SYSTEM PERFORMANCE
  • Adjustable sensitivity to select the acceptable amount of slag carryover
  • Automatic gate closure option eliminates operator reaction time
  • System support available via Internet connection
SENSOR OPTIONS
  • Acoustic (preferred)
  • Accelerometer
