Basic Oxygen Furnaces (BOF) slag is the main problem at all iron and steel making factories. Steel slag is a solid waste from steel production. Monocon can provide a range of slag detection cameras as part of the complete slag control package.
The Infra Red slag detection camera (shown to the right) is a mean to measure when the level of slag in a metal stream reaches a certain percentage. It is an indicator only and has no effect on slag carry over. From the software screen images below, the RED colour represents Steel and the GREEN colour represents Slag.
There are many different types of camera technologies on the market. During discussions, the experienced team at Monocon can advise the customer which is more appropriate camera for their slag detection requirements depending upon the level of sophistication required and budget available.
