By installing specific sensors inside the arc furnace, accidental damage due to backfiring oxygen or fuel can be prevented.
In fact, the W-Stop transmitters placed next to the injectors communicate continuously with the W-Stop receiver to monitor the copper front faces and automatically shut the injectors down in case of backfire.
Our W-Stop system brings numerous long-term benefits such as:
- eliminated wiring and cabling;
- increased lifetime of injectors tips, copper blocks and water cooled panels;
- added safety by reducing water leakages inside the EAF;
- reduced OPEX costs.
All transmitters and electronic units are installed inside an easy-to-open water-cooled box to facilitate the access to the wirings. Also, a dedicated app has been developed to facilitate the W-Stop system configuration.
