Inertization of fuel and oil storage tanks at electric arc furnace

The energy input for an electric arc furnace is realized by electrical and chemical intake. The chemical input is mainly done by means of oxygen-fuel side wall burners, operated with different fuels such as LPG, LNG, oil, or kerosene. These fuels are stored in tanks which have variable space, which is usually filled with an inert gas to avoid fires and explosions. The integrity of a tank’s inertization is monitored by the TRANSIC100LP oxygen transmitter which is ideally suited for monitoring in moist and aggressive process gases and harsh environments.
