Agellis Group AB has received an order totaling 130 KEuro for a slag detection system from a steel plant in Mexico.
The order relates to a slag detection system for ladles (EMLI SIL) which detects the onset of slag in the tapping stream to help reduce slag carryover to the tundish when casting. The order is divided into two parts with a performance guarantee between the two deliveries. The first part of the delivery is the system and sensors for a limited number of ladles, while the second delivery will consist of all the sensors required to equip the rest of the ladles plus spare parts and system education.
During 2015 the first delivery will be completed with the second delivery including commissioning occurring in the first half of 2016.
"Mexico is a very interesting market for Agellis and our increased sales efforts in this area have achieved results. Existing installations in Mexico have proven to be references for us, says Patrik Bloemer, CEO of Agellis."
For competitive reasons Agellis chooses not to mention the end user plant by name.
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.
The EMLI-SIL (Slag Indication Ladle) indicates with a high accuracy when slag appears in the steel stream. The sensor is very close to the steel and must therefore meet very high survival and environmental standards. Accurate slag detection in the steel stream is a prerequisite for a smooth, high quality steel production.
