Substantial Cost Down Potential at EAF

Jan 5, 2020

The unique technology by Luxmet saves electricity and burner fuel when operating an Electric Arc Furnace at a steel mill. With the help of Luxmet-control, the burners can be started 1,2-1,6 minutes earlier and stopped ~2 minutes earlier than in a traditionally controlled EAF-process.

The information has been verified during the Master Thesis made by Emilia Rontti in autumn 2019. In practice, such numbers mean a significant cost efficiency improvement ( 6-digit in €) and productivity increase.

Luxmet technology is based on optical emission spectrum measurement.
