Modules & Features


Unit System:

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.

Furnace Configurator:

The furnace configurator module provides users the ability to create a virtual furnace. Input parameters include

Profile Module:

The users can create their own profile. The profile date includes

Process Parameters:

The users have the ability to vary process parameters such as Zone Setpoints, distance/temperature values and production rate. The software has the capability to simulate both operational and delay scenarios.

Part Module:

A selection of basic part shapes is provided with the software. A new part can be configured by entering dimensions and material properties(provided with the software). The parts include: Billets, Ingots, Slabs, Rounds and Pipes

Part Placement:

The users can use different configuration (across or along the furnace) to place charges/parts in the furnace.

Property Data:

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 zones, Heat loss through the flue, fuel consumption and furnace efficiency. The results are displayed in a Sankey diagram.

Results:

Results include Temperature profile of the charges along furnace length and at exit, 2D skid marks for slab heating furnaces, Scaling/Decarburization depth, Zone wise thermal loading, Zone wise fuel and air inputs

Reports:

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.

Operating System:

The new software is developed with dot net technology and runs seamless on XP, VISTA, Windows 7 , Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows 10
