德國AMEPA公司成立于1984年,開發了下渣檢測技術．不僅應用到大包水口中．還應用到轉爐、電爐的出鋼下渣檢測．以及中間包下渣檢測， 1997年為止在世界范圍內已經采用或將采用下渣檢測的技術。AMEPA系統被認為是目前世界上最先進的渣檢系統，其傳感器也是由發射線圈和接收線圈(雙線圈)組成。相應地，它的系統電路也就包含有激勵單元和信號處理單元兩個相對獨立的組成部分，因而整體結構較為復雜。AMEPA系統的特點是采用單線圈傳感器，在達到相同的檢測效果下極大簡化了設備的電路結構，成為又一種新的連鑄下渣檢測系統。AMEPA傳感器、AMEPA下渣檢測器、AMEPA下渣檢測控制面板、AMEPA下渣檢測IF-200-COM柜內面板、AMEPA下渣檢測線圈；AMEPA下渣檢測儀表、AMEPA插座、AMEPA插頭、AMEPA插針、AMEPA底坐、AMEPA下渣監測系統 型號列舉：CL-、CL129/V01、CL218V01 、C-、C218/V01 、CL205/V01 、INT-、INT-S-02、PICU-、PICU-100、SC-、SC 235 13、LDPI-、LDPI-04、PKE/HT-0 、TS100-、PSS-、PSS/HT-K-、PSS/HT-T AST/HT-T、ABS-、ABS/HT-T-、AMS-、AMS/HT-T-、HAN-、HAN-10-MT-、HAN-10-FS-、HAN-10-MS-、HAN-10-FT-、TTE-、TTE/HT
In 1984, AMEPA was founded as a "spin off" of the Aachen Technical University by three staff members of the Institute of Metallurgy with the aim of creating innovative measurement technologies for the steel industry. Already by the end of 1986, AMEPA had introduced a system to the German market for the electromagnetic detection of slag as the molten steel is being poured into metallurgical vessels. This measurement system was an immediate success as it meant a significant improvement in steel purity. Only two years later, in 1988, AMEPA installed the first slag detection systems in America and Japan. Due to the size and significance of the North American market, AMEPA AMERICA INC. was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1994. top Today, AMEPA has 50 employees. The 250 systems installed to date in 27 countries have made AMEPA Slag Detection Systems a worldwide standard in the steel industry. A global network of distribution and service guarantees customers individualized service, both prior to and after purchasing any AMEPA systems. In close cooperation with companies in the steel industry, AMEPA has developed additional innovative measuring systems in recent years, some of which have been put to use for the first time worldwide.
ESD – Electromagnetic Slag Detection If steel of high quality has to be produced, the most important prerequisite is a slag-free pouring of steel. AMEPA is the worldwide market leader with its electromagnetic slag detection system ESD for ladles with more than 2000 vessels equipped with sensors. 1 ESD Application 2 ESD Technology 3 ESD PublicationsTSD – Thermographic Slag Detection Since 1999, a new Thermographic Slag Detection system TSD is being operated successfully at converters. Here, the different emissivity of steel and slag is being analysed in the infrared range. This system does not need any sensors at or in the converter. RSD – Residual Steel Detection The RSD system for a precise measuring of residual steel in the tundish of continuous casting machines maximizes the yield from the tundish. In case of one steel grade change to another, the system minimizes the intermixing zone in the strand. CFM – Coal Flow Measurement for PCI Pulverized Coal Injection (PCI) systems should assure small line-to-line deviations in order to maintain a ‘healthy furnace’. Reality is often different; consequently optimal injection rates are not reached. The CFM flow meters are the first step towards optimal injection rates: measure the flow, control it, increase it to the optimum. SRM – Online Surface Roughness Measurement Surface roughness of cold rolled sheets is an important parameter for the finishing process. Up to now, online roughness measurement was only possible with systems measuring in rolling direction. AMEPA developed a new optical system enabling a measurement under 45° or 90° - as stipulated by SEP 1940 and DIN EN ISO 4287/4288 - for all kinds of textures. OFM – Online Oil Film Measurement Improper oil film layer distribution or even dry stripes on a metal strip creates problems in the forming process. Therefore an online measuring system is needed for the supervision. The AMEPA OFM system is the first system enabling online oil film measurement and automatic classification of the strip. top 1 TSD Application 2 TSD Technology 3 TSD Publications1 RSD Application 2 RSD Technology 3 RSD Publications 1 CFM Application 2 CFM Technology 3 CFM System Layout 4 CFM Publications 1 SRM Application 2 SRM Technology 3 SRM Visualization 4 SRM Publications 1 OFM Application 2 OFM Technology 3 OFM Visualization 4 OFM Publications
