In an interview with the specialist journal Prozesswärme, the former Chairman of FOGI, Dipl.-Phys. Matthias Rink, deals with the main areas of research for the future of the industry. Mr. Rink asks whether synthetic gases will have the same interactions with firmness materials, especially burner materials, or whether new research will be required to identify appropriate material combinations.
The term “climate targets” is normally used to refer to limiting global warming to a maximum of 2 Kelvin and a reduction of between 80% and 95% in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This article by Dr Franz Beneke looks at the political framework and the resulting possible effects on thermo process industry.
After more than 6 years of standstill due to discrepancies between the companies involved, the experts of CEN/TC 322 met in Tarcento Italy on 29 and 30 January to resume negotiations on the standard contents of EN 14753 "Continuous Casting Machines - Safety".
On November 7 and 8, 2017, experts from the WG 3 (rolling mills) of the CEN TC 322 (safety requirements for metallurgical plants and rolling mills) met to discuss and elaborate the draft standard "Safety requirements for finishing lines for metal strip".
The agenda included reports from the individual WGs, a proposal to set up a new sub-committee "Blast Furnace" and the question of under which guardianship a standard for the cupola furnace should be developed.
The recommendations in this VDMA Specification define the interface between the high pressure metal diecasting machines and extracting devices. die spraying devices as well as metal feeding devices. This is intended to provide interchangeability. A further specification deals with the determination of the machine-specific power consumption of metal diecasting machines.
VDMA’s standard specifications 24202, 24206 and 24217 for thermo processing plants provide users, especially machinery producers and operators, with technical recommendations and practical suggestions that make design, planning and tendering easier.
