Temperature Setpoint Optimization in Steel Reheat Furnaces Using Open Architecture Neural Network and Modeling Software
Published: January 20, 2023
Reheat furnaces are widely used in the steel and metallurgical industries to heat metal slabs to the proper temperatures for rolling, forging, or extruding. Reheat furnaces all face common challenges typically:
- Inefficient energy use
- Difficult to use control systems
- High reject rates
