Detmaster MPG Pickling Grade Measurement System
Novel Detmaster MPG system measures accurately on-line covering the entire strip surface the pickling level (nominal pickling, under pickling, over pickling) on pickling lines in order to maximize pickling line capacity and assure pickled strip quality.
Increasing the pickling line capasity and assuring pickling process output with Detmaster MPG system
SR-Instruments Oy has introduced a new, very sensitive and stable measuring technology which is capable of measuring the remaining residual scale on strip surface. The measurement is a high resolution continuous measurement covering 100% of the strip surface.
In operation the system will measure and visualize the microscopic phenomena of remaining residual scale to the operator via its user interface. Changes in the amount of residual scale of less than 2% can be visualized with the system. The real-time display and alarms indicate tot the operator the nominal pickling grade how far he is from it. Upper and lower thresholds with alarms are pre-set for all steel grades.
Process development people have calculated that this new system increases the pickling line capasity in minimum by 5%. For a 1Mton pickling line this means 50.000 tons more in productivity every year! With our systems, line speeds could be increased even by 30% momentarily. The Detmaster MPG is a stand alone system and no other investments are needed to increase the line capasity.
