Modules & Features
The software is designed for both English and Metric units. For Metric the user can select either Watt or kCal/hr as heat rate unit.
The furnace configurator module provides users the ability to create a virtual furnace. It can handle both Box or Cylindrical type furnaces. Input parameters include:
- Furnace Insulation - Users can create their own insulation from a list of refractories
- Heating Type - The type of heating can be either electrical or gas fired
- Burner Type - Burner type can be either conventional or regenerative
- Cooling Stage - User can create cooling stage (air or water cooled)
The software comes with a profile creation wizard. Profiles can be created from the following options:
- Initial Furnace Temperatures
- Soak Time & Temperature
- Ramp Up Rate
The users have the ability to vary process parameters such as temperatures, number of stages, cycle time.
A selection of basic part shapes is provided with the software. A new part can be configured by supplying new dimensions and material properties (provided with the software). The basic parts that can be created are pipes, rounds, slabs, billets, cylinder, bushing, blocks, sheets, flange, pipes, etc
The user can run furnace simulations using different part orientations to determine the effects of part placement on furnace design and performance. Part placement data include Different Container hoding the parts (Baskets, Trays, Peers, etc.), part arrangement inside the container, and container position inside the furnace.
Comes with an entire database of Steel Grades, Fuel types, and Refractory materials. The software also, provides the user with the capability to create new Steel Grades, Refractory materials and fuel types.
Heat Audit/Power Calculations:
Calculates heat to part, refractory loss, heat to gases, and heat and energy/power consumed in different stages, Heat loss through the flue, fuel consumption and furnace efficiency. The results are displayed in a Sankey diagram.
Results include Time Temperature profile of the furnace and parts, stage wise thermal loading, stage wise fuel and air inputs in case of combustion system, and fuel/air demand during heating cycle. Heat Balance during the entire heating cycle and total fuel and air consumed is also calculated.
Results from each calculation can be displayed in report format. The results can be directly printed, saved as a PDF format or exported to an Excel spread Sheet.
Case & Tutorial:
2 free cases and on-line free training for 1 hour comes withe software.
The new software is developed with dot net technology and runs seamless on XP, VISTA, Windows 7 , Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows 10
Customer’s logo is fitted with the software if requested by the customers.
