Metal Production

Plant and control systems - SolMet

SOLMET combustion systems are available to feed burners with thermal power from a few hundred kilowatts to more than 3 MW, covering the entire power range used in the metal production sector.

The materials, apparatus and devices used and the operating logic of the system are chosen so as to guarantee the highest safety and efficiency standards (EN 746/2, 97/23/CE PED, etc.), the interception and regulation of fuel and oxygen flows according to the process logic, the lighting of the main burner or burners by pilot burners and control of the burners with fall to reports and checking.

This solution guarantees maximum flexibility in the management of the melting plant since the monitoring and control of the operating parameters (e.g. crown/bath/fumes temperature, oxygen and fuel flow) make it possible to manage the melting cycle automatically. The system is supplied preassembled on a skid to limit the amount of assembly required on site, and is managed by a programmable logic controller (PLC) which, thanks to the advanced SOL software installed, ensures regulation and control of the process by precisely controlling the power provided by the burner. A display, based on the characteristics of the plant, shows all the main process parameters and also shows the operating or alarm state of the various components of the plant.

When faults that are significant in safety terms, as defined by national and international regulations, are detected, the plant automatically moves into the safe position by shutting down the valves of the comburant agent and fuel flows.
