Problems

Annealing furnace optimisation

Objective: reduce energy consumption

23% of annealing cycles begin with bell temperature more than 100ºC below optimal

1 hour of extra heating increases energy consumption by 8%

Reheating requires 10 times more power compared to normal operation

Reheating furnace bell after excessive cooling

Application for annealing furnace control

Solution

Application in Digital advisor mode suggests optimal time for bell removal / interval between cycles

Model predicts cooling time for individual furnaces
