Temperature Control for Optimal Process Performance
In modern rolling lines, precise temperature control is crucial for optimal process performance. Induction heating plays a key role in achieving temperature elevation and equalization at various positions, adding value for end users. By employing induction heating after the rolling furnace, slab temperature can be controlled effectively, enabling flexible regulation of input temperature during the rolling process. This facilitates specialized processes like thin-strip rolling. Additionally, this approach offers the advantage of potentially lowering furnace temperatures, leading to a sustainable reduction in fossil fuel consumption, extended refractory and transport roll lifespan, reduced scale formation, and increased metallic yield.
