The Mini Mill (OneSteel) were revamping their Billet Casting process to increase both production, dimensional consistency, and reduced scale on the billet. Effective cooling sprays were seen as a key factor in achieving this.
Improving water filtration, delivery and pressure was relatively straightforward.
However, no standard spray nozzles would provide the desired spray footprint and the necessary spray impact force.
These customised nozzles have contributed to significant improvements in cooling efficiency, dimensional consistency, and productivity. They have also reduced downtime and nozzle changes.
Tecpro Australia has patented these unique nozzles.
