Agellis Group has been granted a patent for the technology used in the products EMLI-ELP and EMLI-FBL in Chile. Chile is an important market for the Agellis Group’s Technology with many potential non-ferrous customers and the granting of this patent plays an important strategic role for Agellis.
This patent is an important part of Agellis patent strategy; to be unique in the area of level measurement of molten metal and slag. The patent gives Agellis protection from competition in both the steel industry (EMLI-FBL) and in the non-ferrous metals industry (EMLI-ELP).
“The Chilean non-ferrous metals industry is of great interest to us and has strong potential for sales of Agellis products. With the patent in place we gain confidence in the knowledge that we have the protection to increase our sales activity in this market, says Patrik Bloemer, CEO of Agellis.”
Agellis electromagnetic products are based on a common electronic platform called EMLI. Products within thermography are based on infrared cameras and unique user software and server solution.
EMLI-ELP (Electromagnetic Level Profiling) measures with high accuracy the different layers of material in a furnace, such as metal and slag. An accurate level measurement of the different layers in a furnace is a prerequisite for higher yield and increased quality of the metal produced.
EMLI- FBL (Furnace Bath Level) automatically measures the bath level in an EAF with high accuracy, reliability and safety. A reliable measurement of the steel bath level taken while electrode power is on or off helps operators make processing decisions that can help to increase production, improve safety and reduce maintenance.
