Abstract: Many measurement challenges exist when monitoring high temperature assets such as Arc Furnaces, including high temperature, moving platforms, and high EMI. Northstar Bluescope Steel had all of these problems and more. They used these points for control, and their only solution was shutting the furnace down and replacing the wires often. By implementing an Emerson Smart Wireless technology, the customer was able to reduce or eliminate all of these measurement challenges, resulting in greatly reduced maintenance costs, and additional throughput.
