The proven VAiron Sinter-Process Automation Solution has been enhanced with important innovations that have been developed in close cooperation between voestalpine and Siemens VAI. A sophisticated material tracking system for bulk materials throughout the whole ironmaking plant, from ore preparation to the blast furnace, provides the basis for an advanced process optimization system. The blending yard and sinter plant material control have been integrated into one common control model. The diagnosis and control functions have been bundled into a sinter expert system. The chemical properties are stabilized by automatic adaptation of the raw material mix. An enhanced burn-through point control system that considers physical and chemical properties has been developed. The waste gas control supports a minimized environmental impact through the reduction of S02 emissions.
