The refractory lining is regularly monitored by the furnace lining monitoring system, which also supplies data to help them optimise the way their furnace works. It is possible to maximise campaign life and cut expenses at the smelter by keeping an eye on refractory performance and determining when to replace the lining.
There is a decrease in the likelihood of unscheduled shutdowns for urgent repairs. It enhanced shutdown planning and a campaign lifespan that is optimised. Overall energy efficiency has increased as a result.
The Global Furnace Lining Monitoring System Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The Metso Outotec Furnace Lining Monitoring System (FLMS) is an intelligent method of keeping track of furnace refractory linings in order to lessen unscheduled shutdowns, enhance maintenance scheduling, and increase lining longevity. The device offers data that will assist you optimise the operation of the furnace while continuously monitoring the refractory liner. In order to maximise campaign life and cut expenses at the smelter, it is necessary to be able to track refractory performance and determine when it is time to replace the lining.
The method they use depends on the containment of the furnace. The effectiveness of the furnace refractory linings needs to be regularly checked in order to achieve the longest campaign life and reap the greatest benefits from the system. The answer consists of thermocouples mounted in the furnace wall at various depths to precise monitoring of areas that are vulnerable to wear. Using the thermocouples’ collected data.
Using Fourier’s Law of Heat Conduction, the heat flux may be computed throughout the lining. The isotherm curves, which represent temperature curves where metal and slag are at their melting points, are used in the calculation together with the heat-flux data. With the help of the gathered information, operators and engineering staff may create understandable visualisations of temperature, lining condition, and isotherm curves.
