Agellis supplies Norwegian ferroalloy producer with VISIR-LadleSafe system
Agellis Group AB has received an order for the supply of a VISIR-LadleSafe system. The order, from a Norwegian ferroalloy producer, applies to a smelter plant in Scandinavia.
The LadleSafe system is designed to monitor ladles and alarm if the equipment shows external hot spots or ladle lining damage. The system minimizes the risk of ladle breakouts, improves safety for operating personnel and optimizes the utilization of the refractories in the ladle fleet.
Ladle breakouts are costly and can cause severe damage to equipment, personnel and the production chain. Avoiding breakouts is an important safety topic to address for any modern non-ferrous metal producer.
“The ferroalloy and non-ferrous industry is a growing market for Agellis and we are very satisfied to see that our VISIR based products offers invaluable benefits for this part of the industry as well. In fact, any operation using ladles to transport liquid metal can minimize the risk for breakouts and tremendously increase safety by using Agellis’ LadleSafe solution”, says Patrik Bloemer, CEO of Agellis Group.
Delivery and installation is expected to be made during the second quarter of 2017.
