A new system to monitor key parameters of an electric arc furnace has had its first global sale after a successful pilot installation in Germany. North American Höganäs in Hollsopple, Pennsylvania, USA has purchased the condition monitoring system (CMS) and service, together with an upgrade of its existing Electrode Regulation system. The CMS notes changes outside the key parameters and reports them in real time. In addition, an information broker PC offers remote data access. The system will be installed and commissioned in June during a furnace control system upgrade.
