STEEL INDUSTRY

Smart manufacturers in the steel industry utilize KCF’s machine-health solution to remotely monitor their critical assets, increase the safety of their facility, decrease downtime, and optimize production.

SMART Solutions

PROBLEM 

In the metals industry, it is crucial that products meet their required metallic microstructure so they can perform as expected in their desired use. To achieve these specific qualities, the materials must go through a heat treating process in a large furnace that holds the metal at a very precise temperature for a set amount of time. Recirculation fans ensure this temperature remains constant so the expected product quality is achieved.

RESOLUTION

The SMARTdiagnostics solution by KCF Technologies is the least-expensive and easiest way to achieve continuous monitoring on recirculation fans to prevent coupling damage. Installing 20 wireless sensors affordably enables continuous monitoring of the vibration and temperature trends. Each sensor wirelessly transmits high-value data safely and at low cost, enabling automatic alarms and integration into the existing software infrastructure.

 

CRITICAL ASSETS

  • Vacuum Pumps/Blowers
  • Bar Turners/Polishers
  • Heat Treatment Furnace Fans
  • Cranes

“Besides the fact that they have a good product that is constantly improving, the thing that really sets KCF apart is their monitoring services and customer support. Unlike other companies, KCF doesn’t just sell a product and walk away. They work with you to monitor your machinery.”

Reliability Leader

“Product loss will not be eliminated with preventative maintenance. It can only be achieved by adopting a predictive approach and addressing issues before they result in catastrophic failure.”
