Selective control and regulation of the lift gas in each individual tuyere of the up snorkel guarantees an optimized process and a positive effect on the durability of the refractory materials. The gas control unit by FC Technik offers the required degree of exactness.
One of our newest developments is our test unit for lift gas, to proof the tightness and flow-rate of the tuyeres and piping of the snorkel assembly before it goes into operation. Gas consumption, flow and pressure can be measured and documented to guarantee 100 % availability and increased functionality of each snorkel.
The standard system is designed as a standalone and plug&play solution, the concept of snorkel testing before using could be implemented in any of our RH Lift Gas control systems.
