Rensodyn – Knowledge-based process management for better energy utilization

Initial situation:

  • Alternating feedstocks at sintering plant and blast furnace
  • Adaptations of the process management to changing boundary conditions necessary
  • Reduction of fuel consumption and emissions desired
  • Data processing for process control is complex

Working topics:

  • Modular, database-integrated program system
  • Implementation of good operational management in rules
  • Concrete proposals with figures and additional references
  • Customized functions for evaluation and visualization

Results:

  • Objective, uniform process control
  • Explanation of the rules
  • Optimized cast iron quality
  • Reduce costs and emissions
  • Relief of the staff
  • Knowledge documentation for process management
