Leading producer of seamless steel pipes for demanding customers like the oil and gas, automotive, energy, machinery industry etc Vallourec Solugoes Tubulares do Brasil has hires the Al Company Smart Steel Technologies to implement SST Temperature Al at their production site in Jeceaba in Brazil. The software gets installed in its steel mill specialized in round billets focused on the production of seamless steel tubes. The SST solution is used for precise temperature control from EAF via LF & VD to the continuous caster and will be integrated live into the production process.Consequently, Vallourec will minimize temperature buffers and will be able to optimize the temperature in production. Through increased process stability, Vallourec will permanently save energy costs, C02 emissions and improve product quality. The installation of SST Temperature Al takes a few months only. Additional three months are invested in a test and optimization phase. Fortunately, Vallourec will benefit from a significant cost reduction soon.
