The SMARTEC is an advanced cooling electrode system to regulate air/water flow through the electrode cooling rings dynamically. It consists of a valve stand and a set of optimized electrode cooling rings controlled by a dedicated proprietary automation software. This dynamic control during every melting phase, significantly increases the efficiency and effectiveness of electrode cooling compared to the standard practice to use a fixed amount of cooling water; therefore, reduction of electrode and electrical energy consumption, without affecting the arc stability, can be achieved.


  • Dynamic adjustment of the water cooling flow according to the requirements of the melting profile.
  • Increased availability of the cooling rings due to a design that prevents clogging and deformation.
  • Electrode-consumption reduction up to 15%.
  • Reduction of OPEX.
