SlagTron – Smart Slag Detection System

SlagTron Slag Detection System

Automatic operation with alarm triggers

The SlagTron is a proven Slag Detection solution for accurate and timely detection of slag carryover in the steel making process, allowing metal plants to improve product quality, reduce slag carryover and improve operator safety. IMPROVED PRODUCT QUALITY Using SlagTron has been demonstrated to improve operator response time and consistency at the end of each tap. This results in a typical reduction in slag depths of up to 30% compared to traditional methods of manual monitoring. REDUCED DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING COSTS The cost of additional downstream processing time and materials can be a significant burden on an operating plant. By controlling slag carry-over this costly downstream processing can be reduced or eliminated, improving plant throughput and operating margins. AUTOMATIC OPERATION As the tap commences, the application dedicated software records it, using a stream identification algorithm, producing a data log and graph for quality control. A stream tracking mechanism is included to ensure reliable operation in typical installation conditions. When slag appears, and exceeds an operator defined amount, an alarm is automatically triggers. The system is designed to ensure accurate detection of steel/slag independent of charge weight and without operator intervention. The SlagTron is IndyaSys Technology’s definitive solution for monitoring and reducing slag carryover in steel production facilities. It is proven to reduce slag carryover, save money and improve operator safety.
