ABB doesn’t just provide electromagnetic equipment but offers comprehensive performance solutions for your business. That means our mission is achieved when we deliver the improved metallurgical results guaranteed by our performance warranty. Through expert analysis of your electric arc furnace process we are able to select the EMS product which best suits your needs. To get the most out of our product, and your process, our in-house experts create a stirring profile to control intensity, duration and direction. During the commissioning phase we test the equipment on-site to guarantee performance, not just in theory, but also in practice.
Electromagnetic stirring from ABB
Can your business improve its productivity and process performance with effective and reliable stirring? That’s exactly why the steel and aluminum industry have chosen ABB’s non-contact EMS technology for over 1200 installations worldwide; technology we invented and continuously develop to ensure that you get long-term, significant results. And with the widest and most versatile range of EMS products on the market, we are able to offer you a solution which is customized to your process needs and delivers maximum process improvements.
With EMS effective stirring is achieved when the magnetic field from the static induction coil, placed on the outside of the furnace, interacts with electrically conducting metal bath. EMS effectively reduces elevated surface temperatures and eliminates hot-spots in the melt. This, coupled with minimized oxidation in the melt surface, significantly improves heat transfer to the melt leading to increased productivity, a safer working environment and a more reliable process. Since ABB’s EMS products provide stirring in the entire bath you will even get more uniform chemical analysis using ArcSave.
