Monitoring of tilting position on basic oxygen furnace

The vessel or shell of a basic oxygen furnace is mounted in a way that allows tilting movements. Depending on the process step during heating (e.g. tapping, de-slagging, charging), the shell must be tilted in different positions by means of hydraulic cylinders. To control the tilting process, measurement equipment precisely controls the tilting maneuver. The tilting must be measured accurately and the maximum tilting positions must be defined and secured. A rugged inductive proximity sensor and an incremental encoder can together accurately provide the shell’s tilting position.
