Cutting Maintenance Cost
Raw DTS measurements were converted to a user-friendly heat map of the furnace, displayed in a web portal for the operational team of Aperam. As Fluves could confirm that most parts of the furnace were in perfect condition, only a small section of the furnace needed repair, resulting in a significant reduction in maintenance costs.
Fluves could also prioritize the locations according to the remaining lifetime of the thermal insulation. The expectations of Aperam of our monitoring solution were largely exceeded.
